To help the institutional churches express themselves more clearly, a new interdenominational hymn has been written: Throwing in the Towel, to be sung to the tune of Bringing in the Sheaves. Here are the lyrics.
Triumph for abortion, joy for same-sex “marriage,”
Now we understand: the bad guys always win.
We the church surrender, we the church cry “uncle!”
Now we understand there’s no such thing as sin.
Throwing in the towel, throwing in the towel,
We know when we’re licked, we’re throwing in the towel (repeat)
We have been defeated, we have lost the culture;
Gates of hell have finally ‘gainst the church prevailed.
Sorry, Lord, we blew it, we just couldn’t do it,
Satan’s team has won and we the church have failed. Chorus
