Soundgarden - It Has Meaning

I've Been Listening to the Soundgarden song - "Hand of God." It's from the Screaming Life EP. You can hear the influence of Gang of Four but the tune is classic Soundgarden. What's really interesting is the speaking at the beginning. Somebody is expressing thoughts among those big chords - but who is it? Jack Endino, the person who recorded the EP, told me he found a box of old tapes at a church rummage sale. They were recordings of sermons from sometime long ago. Amazing that part of an obscure sermon found their way onto a Soundgarden song! And what do the words mean? I don't know. The last words you hear before the wicked lead guitar comes in are, "It has no meaning."
