The Origin of Love

British singer-songwriter Mika released a song a couple of months ago — “The Origin of Love” — that was brought to my attention now because the lyrics promote Humanism and speak about religion with a sarcastic bent. The idea behind it is that people should love each other for the sake of love and not for God.

(The video contains nudity… so there’s your NSFW warning)

You are the sun and the light, you are the freedom I fight
God will do nothing to stop it
The origin is you
You’re the origin of love

Like stupid Adam and Eve they found their love in a tree
God didn’t think they deserved it
He taught them hate, taught them pride
Gave them a leaf, made them hide
Let’s push their stories aside
You know the origin is you
