One of my favorites are Psalm

One of my favorites are Psalm 137, especially the ending.
It's the one Boney M made the hit "By the rivers of Babylon".

8 O daughter of Babylon, who are to be destroyed,
Happy the one who repays you as you have served us!
9 Happy the one who takes and dashes
Your little ones against the rock!

You can picture them grabbing crying babies by their feet, and dash them against the rocks, blood spattering across their happy faces, and then they cheerfully doing high-fives in between babies.

Strangely, people don't seem to pick this one to sing at baptizings?

Yes, I read something about a reggae original. Not my cup of tea, so I wouldn't know.

I don't know if it fits the bill as dashing babies on the rocks, but it's definitely got something.

Plenty of money for church

Plenty of money for church buildings but none to bury children with respect. This act shows what they value most, they have the same ethics as faith healers.

But at least the "Archbishop of Tuam Michael Neary has said he will work to organize a fundraising effort for a plaque to memorialize the 796 dead babies."

So it all okay now...
