Prayer Curse: Republicans Call For Obama Death

English: President Barack Obama and the First ...

From Denny:  From the deviants' corner of the morally reprehensible comes a circulating email from Republican politicians to pray for God to kill President Obama.

These guys are unbelievable.  Just when you think they could not sink any lower on the vile meter, they come up with Bible verses to demand the death of a sitting President.

The real question is this:  But has anyone decided to do a sanity test on these sitting politicians?  Maybe it's time to take matters into our own hands and for the public to demand such a test be performed.  People seem to forget the intense harm that one crazy guy - by the name of Senator McCarthy - did to this country.

McCarthy devastated the careers of many Hollywood actors who refused to name friends as Communists.  Old McCarthy was demanding false witnesses or retribution.  Those who did not participate in his insanity paid some high prices. 

Will Geer of "The Waltons" fame is one such actor, though his career did rebound the last years of his life. In order to make a living outside acting during the McCarthy years when Geer was blackballed, he turned to horticulture, becoming a world renowned expert.

What has now come to light many decades later is that McCarthy was suffering from some serious dementia, most likely Alzheimer's.  Yet he went undiagnosed and a nation was in the grips of - and held hostage by - his vicious insanity for years.  Are we really going to allow this toxic political atmosphere to careen out of control yet again and in this generation?

Kansas House Speaker Mike O'Neal
Who is the politician spear-heading this act of treason?  It's the Kansas House Speaker Mike O'Neal who is asking the Republicans in Congress, the House, to pray for the death of President Obama.  He emailed GOP colleagues in the House.  How outrageous is this?

The Bible verses he claims give him permission to do such a vile thing - that is against everything Jesus Christ taught those who claim to be Christians is  Psalm 109: 7 - 12.  Well, no one ever said this O'Neal guy understood the concept of wisdom.

Let his days be few; and let another take his office.
Let his children be fatherless, and his wife a widow.

'When he shall be judged, let him be condemned: and let his prayer become sin.
Let his days be few; and let another take his office.
Let his children be fatherless, and his wife a widow.
Let his children be continually vagabonds, and beg: let them seek their bread also out of their desolate places.
Let the extortioner catch all that he hath; and let the strangers spoil his labor.
Let there be none to extend mercy unto him: neither let there be any to favor his fatherless children.'

Speaker O'Neal ended his email with this nasty attitude, glorifying murder, enlisting him into Satan's Minions:

“At last — I can honestly voice a Biblical prayer for our president! Look it up — it is word for word! Let us all bow our heads and pray. Brothers and Sisters, can I get an AMEN? AMEN!!!!!!”

Apparently, Republican conservatives adopted this Psalm as a bumper sticker meme as code to call for Obama's death right after his 2008 election - and to make his wife a widow and his children fatherless.  These people are seriously sick, downright mentally ill.

Where to start to rebut this crazy idea of using - OK, perverting - Bible verses to justify murder just because you don't like someone else's political views?  As usual, perverted people take out of context these verses to justify their own evil, calling it as if it were good.  It certainly is a sad commentary on the kind of people who band together to promote Republican politics.

FYI, this psalm is referencing a destructive leader like the current guy in Syria who is killing children, sending out rape squads against women and torturing his people just to remain in power.  While President Obama has done little to distinguish himself in a positive light during his tenure, he has not turned violent against the American people.  Therefore, he does not warrant such a reaction as a cursing prayer against him.

President Ronald Reagan would have chastised this kind of toxicity, ashamed to be associated with the same party.  Unfortunately, there are no leaders today in the Republican party to choose to do better. Most are cut from the Nasty Newt Gingrich mold.  It's all about being in power at all costs.

What these toxic people are not paying attention to is how they are killing their own souls.  When you call for someone else's death, you die with them.  A dire warning:  Life has a way of bringing to your doorstep the worst of what you wish upon others.  So, be careful what you wish for; it just might happen - to you.
