I know this is an old thread, but I can't help but comment. The song "Satan is My Motor" has NOTHING TO DO WITH WORSHIPPING SATAN. You are COMPLETELY MISSING THE POINT OF THE SONG!

The song is about the engine of a car being evil, because our love of automobiles is destroying our planet. It has to do with people thinking only highly of cars, and never understanding the evil they cause.

Every war we have gone to in the United States has been to secure oil as a resource. EVERY CONFLICT. EVERY TIME.

It's always been about BIG OIL. If you read the book 'Oil' by Matthew Yeomans, he talks about this. We send our young men and women to die so that oil tycoons can be rich. It's pretty much the stupidest thing, ever. And yet, most people lick it up like it's normal, and just keep driving their cars everyday. Driving isn't NORMAL.

WE SHOULD BE WALKING, OR BIKING. Driving is killing our planet... and yet most people give all their money to the oil gods, and don't even think twice. Jesus would be walking. Jesus wouldn't drive an S.U.V. Jesus would care about the environment. Especially since his father created it, right? Of course he would respect it. He wouldn't just drive all over the place, and go to war again when Oil resources got low.

The song is about considering how easy it is to have all the things we do, but at what cost? What is the trade off for having cars? If we destroy our planet, we will be left with nothing.

I don't understand how people with children can be so blind to damaging the environment. You are only making a problem for your kids down the road by not dealing with it, and leaving it for them to have to deal with later. It's not going to magically fix itself! It will take planting forests, and changing our energy use to renewables. Coal is poisoning the water in many states as we speak, and the GOP have made it clear that they are only interested in profit, so we can't expect that they will look out for the people and their children's welfare. It is up to us to demand better for our children.

Always make a point to follow the money, to see where things are heading. You will see people's true intentions.

One last note. Just because a word is being used doesn't mean it's being used how you think it is. Dig a little deeper into life. Seriously. How superficial can you be? If I use the word Patriot in a song, would you automatically think it's a Patriotic song? Come on. There is a lot more going on in life. Don't be such a simpleton. Use your brain WAKE UP to corporations who greedily take take take.

Thank you for wringing your hands over consumption of oil. I won't have to worry about as you clearly have enough concern for all of us here.

Come on guys, he's right, oil/cars put the buggy whip manufacturer out of business, livery stables used to be a hub for growing towns here in the west, coal powered trains were another industry to fall to oil.
One can no longer look across the horizon and see that romantic view of billowing black smoke and the mark it left on everything it touched.
Hell, oil even killed off the lucrative whaling industry, where men would board sail driven ships out to sea where it was man against monster for that precious blubber.
That was another industry to fall to the evils of oil, sailing ships, the majestic sea travel, man against the elements.

There was a time when man loaded up his family in a horse-drawn wagon with everything they could carry, whale oil barrel topped off, provisions secured and off they went, months, even years traveling the countryside, taking in all the land had to offer, but now, thanks to oil, man misses the "up close and personal" contact with our land, he no longer sees the world around him, no, he boards a plane and in hours he lands across the country. Damn that oil!

Damn that evil oil! Man is spoiled, food is no longer a family enterprise, where a family prized it's labor when it produced food from the earth, no, oil has replaced man's knowledge of working the land, he merely stops at a grocery store and buys the food he needs, never once considering how the food arrived at the store.

We need to turn to a time before drugs were derived from oil, when entire families suffered from plague, when it still took hours to find the only doctor for miles around.
We've lost the one thing that made man strong, disease, where God would cull the weak with plague and only the strong were able to procreate.

Damn that oil!!!

Oh, and never heard of the song you refer to.

I for one am just falling all over myself with all this lib feel good BS myself.   But I guess on the Religion Forum, you don't need facts and data as long as you feel good.   :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes:
