I'm going to sound like Mary Katherine Gallagher, but my views can best be expressed with two songs:

Still by Alanis Morissette

This song was first recorded over eight years ago and is sadly, much more relevant today. To me, this is God.

I am the harm which you inflict.
I am your brilliance and frustration.
I'm the nuclear bombs if they're to hit.
I am your immaturity and your indignance.
I am your misfits and your praised.
I am your doubt and your conviction.
I am your charity and your rape.
I am your grasping and expectation.

I see you averting your glances.
I see you cheering on the war.
I see you ignoring your children,
And I love you still.
And I love you still.

I am your joy and your regret.
I am your fury and your elation.
I am your yearning and your sweat.
I am your faithless and your religion.

I see you altering history.
I see you abusing the land.
I see you, your selective amnesia,
And I love you still.
And I love you still.

Haaaaaaaaahh
I see you averting your glimpses.
I see you cheering on the war.
I see you ignoring your children,
And I love you still.
And I love you still.
I see you altering history.
I see you abusing the land.
I see you, your selective amnesia,
I love you still.
And I love you still.

I am your tragedy and your fortune.
I am your crisis and delight.
I am your profits and your prophets.
I am your art, I am your vice.
I am your death and your decisions.
I am your passion and your plight.
I am your sickness and convalescence.
I am your weapons and your light.

I see you holding your grudges.
I see you gunning them down.
I see you silencing your sisters,
And I love you still.
And I love you still.
I see you lie to your country.
I see you forcing them out.
I see you blaming each other,
And I love you still.
And I love you still.

Haaaaaaaahh
I see you holding your grudges.
I see you gunning them down.
I see you silencing your sisters,
I love you still.
I love you still.
I see you lie to your country.
I see you forcing them out.
I see you blaming each other.
I love you still.
I love you still.
I see you.

Gay Bash by Melange Lavonne

I saw this on Logo the other day and it's perfect.

Verse 1:

Kevin was a friend to me we hit it off from the very beginning he had a very big heart, That boy was my best friend and that's real talk, and those who hated Kevin didn't know Kev at all,
Cause I'm about to let yall know you got it twisted, you just see the paint but don't see the big picture,
You go and preach hate but hide behind scripture, you point the finger first but you the worst sinner,
I'm angry cuz his life was short that's not fair, you condemn him to going to hell he's not there,
He was good, he was love, he was all of thee above, so I don't understand how you do not care
You go to church every week you call this devotion, Hide behind the police and say your word is spoken,
Your faith is only what you only see your eyes wide open
You say you a man of god but you going thru the motions.

Hook: Listen, you aint a Christian you go and preach hate, you call yourself a church together you congregate then turn around and point the finger discriminate, then spit in my face condemn me for being gay!!!

Verse 2:

Yo! I think me and Kevin, yea we both know that this life, I mean world, this world is so cold
I don't feel safe any place anymore and you come up in my face just watch me slam the door,
Well people take the law in they own hands I gotta take a stand and represent him for him I'll go to war,
An advocate for peace but peace is what for?? You stay ignorant it means you not know
Its 2007 man why u even give a damn, why concentrating on someone life they living in??
If society say us people aint fittin in ignore us, close your eyes and stop listening
Guess you aint got no life nothing to do tell you what concentrate on you and just you
Yo, I represent those who opposes hate not people who hate two faced saying god is great

Hook: Listen, you aint a Christian you go and preach hate, you call yourself a church together you congregate then turn around and point the finger discriminate, then spit in my face condemn me for being gay!!!

Verse 3:

Can't believe they did this what happen was foul
And everything that happen don't make sense right now
And I feel it's about to go down I want revenge for taking my best friend and making his life end
And people are afraid of someone who aint them if I were to hate I would be just like them
So I can't & I won't cause I'm better than that
But it won't change the fact that he aint coming back
So I gotta be strong now I got my reason to stand up for people like kev who stop breathin
Cause I'm there with you every step of the way
You aint gotta be afraid of what society say
Cause I been there before the lowest point in my life
Considered suicide a feeling that I wanted to die
But I survived and you are not alone in this fight
Take a stand for equality and fight for your right.

Hook: Listen, you aint a Christian you go and preach hate, you call yourself a church together you congregate then turn around and point the finger discriminate, then spit in my face condemn me for being gay!!!
