    (Minor correction: It was at the 1992 convention, while Clinton made his first bid for the White House, not his re-election.)

        DAD:
        There are Jews in the world.
        There are Buddhists.
        There are Hindus and Mormons, and then
        There are those that follow Mohammed, but
        I've never been one of them.

        I'm a Roman Catholic,
        And have been since before I was born,
        And the one thing they say about Catholics is:
        They'll take you as soon as you're warm.

        You don't have to be a six-footer.
        You don't have to have a great brain.
        You don't have to have any clothes on. You're
        A Catholic the moment Dad came,

        Because

        Every sperm is sacred.
        Every sperm is great.
        If a sperm is wasted,
        God gets quite irate.

        CHILDREN:
        Every sperm is sacred.
        Every sperm is great.
        If a sperm is wasted,
        God gets quite irate.

        GIRL:
        Let the heathen spill theirs
        On the dusty ground.
        God shall make them pay for
        Each sperm that can't be found.

        CHILDREN:
        Every sperm is wanted.
        Every sperm is good.
        Every sperm is needed
        In your neighbourhood.

        MUM:
        Hindu, Taoist, Mormon,
        Spill theirs just anywhere,
        But God loves those who treat their
        Semen with more care.

        MEN:
        Every sperm is sacred.
        Every sperm is great.
        WOMEN:
        If a sperm is wasted,...
        CHILDREN:
        ...God get quite irate.

        PRIEST:
        Every sperm is sacred.
        BRIDE and GROOM:
        Every sperm is good.
        NANNIES:
        Every sperm is needed...
        CARDINALS:
        ...In your neighbourhood!

        CHILDREN:
        Every sperm is useful.
        Every sperm is fine.
        FUNERAL CORTEGE:
        God needs everybody's.
        MOURNER #1:
        Mine!
        MOURNER #2:
        And mine!
        CORPSE:
        And mine!

        NUN:
        Let the Pagan spill theirs
        O'er mountain, hill, and plain.
        HOLY STATUES:
        God shall strike them down for
        Each sperm that's spilt in vain.

        EVERYONE:
        Every sperm is sacred.
        Every sperm is good.
        Every sperm is needed
        In your neighbourhood.

        Every sperm is sacred.
        Every sperm is great.
        If a sperm is wasted,
        God gets quite iraaaaaate!

                    In true Kennedy tradition, I'm thinking of importing some rum.

                        Philippine. Tanduay 'Superior', aged 12 years, very smooth. Comes in a fancy black box with upscale gold lettering. Not bad for $2.60.

                        Upscale is the thing though. Only a democrat would import Jamaican rum.

                            That's twice in one thread - have you forgotten to take your medication ?
                            With or without religion, you would have good people doing good things and evil people doing evil things. But for good people to do evil things, that takes religion.
