This comes from the Rev. Church Currie’s Blog. I invite you, to go there and read the rest of his article, including a way to contact the Kansas Speaker’s office. Here’s a bit of it…
Pat Cunningham reports that Speaker Mike O’Neal compared Michelle Obama to the Grinch in e-mails and later wrote over the holiday: ““I’m sure you’ll join me in wishing Mrs. YoMama a wonderful, long Hawaii Christmas vacation — at our expense, of course.”
In another e-mail, Speaker O’Neal forwarded Psalm 109, which reads: “May his days be few; may another seize his position…” and continues:
May his children be fatherless and his wife a widow.
May his children be wandering beggars; may they be driven from their ruined homes.
May a creditor seize all he has; may strangers plunder the fruits of his labor.
May no one extend kindness to him or take pity on his fatherless children.
O’Neal wrote: “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!!!!!!”
Kurt says: We need less political Bible thumping hypocrites in positions of power… or at least we need to quit buying the lie that Jesus plays a “big role” in many of their lives. Some are sincere to be sure, but this goes to show us that we can’t be seduced by their rhetoric, either “right” or “left.” Unfortunately, however tongue in cheek this email may or may not have been, there is no excuse for wishing the death of someone – especially via the Bible.
