Encouragements Of Imprecatory Prayers Against Obama

So insidious:

Over the past few days, a Biblical verse has reportedly topped the google trends charts. It is also turning up in bumper stickers and tee shirts across the country. It reads:

“Pray for Obama: Psalm 109:8”

But what do you see when you look up that Psalm?

“May his days be few; may another take his office.”

But take a look at the whole psalm, especially the lines immediately after this one — lines the original framer of this sticker — and many others after him/her could not have failed to miss:

9 May his children be fatherless
and his wife a widow.

10 May his children be wandering beggars;
may they be driven from their ruined homes.

Diana Butler Bass in her blog on Sojourner’s Magazine says “Thus, the “Prayer for Obama” does more than anticipate that he leaves office; it entreats God to destroy the president.”
