New shirts, stickers encourage Christians to "pray for Obama," ...to die

Kim LaCapria

What on the surface looks like a simple Christian plea promoting prayer for President Obama (via Psalm 109,verse 8)-somewhat condescending, but in line with the whole "pray for them" concept- is actually quite sinister underneath.

At first, it seems critical, but not that bad:

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.

"This is the Old Testament biblical equivalent of calling for holy war. ... And what surprises me is that responsible -- if you can put it that way -- Republican leadership, and the editors at some of these Christian magazines .... do not stand up in holy horror and denounce this."

"I would just say to them, 'Where the hell are you?'" Schaeffer concluded. "'This is not funny any more, and be it on your head if something happens to our president.' ... There are not many steps left on this insane path."

Personally, I think Gawker gets it right when they point out this bit, also from Psalm 109:

Let mine adversaries be clothed with shame; and let them cover themselves with their own confusion, as with a mantle.
