The Cult of Personality

The Cult of Personality has struck again and I’m nervous. Obama is attempting to force through way too much legislation that nobody has read, reviewed or understands. I don’t want to be forced to die when someone decides I’m no longer necessary; on his staff is someone who at one time advocated forced sterilization even though that has already been ruled on by the courts and you can’t do it.

In case you haven’t noticed, in this Year for Priests, I’ve been posting about Beatified and Canonized Priests, with an emphasis on 20th Century Martyrs of Persecutions. I have a special affinity for Polish New Martyrs, I don’t know why. I think it’s important to tell their stories, or as much of their stories I can find online; I don’t find much in English so I’m posting bad translations of Italian or Norwegian. The sad part is that I’m not running out of Martyrs. There seems to have been at least one Priest-Martyr for every day. I don’t want them to be forgotten.

The Cult of Personality, Living Colour

Look into my eyes, what do you see?
Cult of personality
I know your anger, I know your dreams
I’ve been everything you want to be
I’m the cult of personality
Like Mussolini and Kennedy
I’m the cult of personality
Cult of personality
Cult of personality

Neon lights, a Nobel prize
The mirror speaks, the reflection lies
You don’t have to follow me
Only you can set me free
I sell the things you need to be
I’m the smiling face on your t.v.
I’m the cult of personality
I exploit you still you love me

I tell you one and one makes three
I’m the cult of personality
Like Joseph Stalin and Ghandi
I’m the cult of personality
Cult of personality
Cult of personality

Neon lights a Nobel prize
A leader speaks, that leader dies
You don’t have to follow me
Only you can set you free

You gave me fortune
You gave me fame
You me power in your gods name
I’m every person you need to be
I’m the cult of personality
Look into my eyes, what do you see?
Cult of personality
I know your anger, I know your dreams
I’ve been everything you want to be
I’m the cult of personality
Like Mussolini and Kennedy
I’m the cult of personality
Cult of personality
Cult of personality

Neon lights, a Nobel prize
The mirror speaks, the reflection lies
You don’t have to follow me
Only you can set me free
I sell the things you need to be
I’m the smiling face on your t.v.
I’m the cult of personality
I exploit you still you love me

I tell you one and one makes three
I’m the cult of personality
Like Joseph Stalin and Ghandi
I’m the cult of personality
Cult of personality
Cult of personality

Neon lights a Nobel prize
A leader speaks, that leader dies
You don’t have to follow me
Only you can set you free

You gave me fortune
You gave me fame
You gave me power in your gods name
I’m every person you need to be
I’m the cult of personality
