Obama and Psalm 109: How Very Unchristian
There is a slogan that is appearing on bumper stickers and t-shirts all across the land:
"Pray for Obama: Psalm 109:8"
Very biblical. Sounds pretty innocent right? Not quite:
"Let his days be few; and let another take his office."
It gets worse:
"Let his children be fatherless, and his wife a widow."
I'm a big believer in free speech and civil liberties. Freedom and liberty let the sun shine on the vermin. Vermin look more sinister and ugly in the daylight as they scurry into the sewer or under a rock.
However, this slogan represents a direct threat to President Obama. It is not funny and the message is clear. It is no different than someone advocating for the assassination of the president on a street corner or in a train station. You simply can't do it and if you do, expect a visit from the U.S. Secret Service.
I pray that the government is up to the task of protecting this and every president that serves our country. Based on the level of crazies on the right that hate this president, the Secret Service have and will continue to have their hands full.
