Let Us Pray

If you heard about the Kansas congressman who was "praying for Obama" to let his days be numbered, the prayer can go both ways sweetie.  Isn't it something like treason for an elected official to intimate the wish for the President's demise?  Not to mention his other blatantly racist and derogatory comments and emails about Michele Obama.  The man is a disgrace.

Lets take that psalm from the beginning and it could easily be turned against Mike O'Neil himself - "let his prayers condemn him".  Imagine Obama praying these words (Psalm 109):

1 My God, whom I praise,
do not remain silent,
2 for people who are wicked and deceitful
have opened their mouths against me;
they have spoken against me with lying tongues.
3 With words of hatred they surround me;
they attack me without cause.
4 In return for my friendship they accuse me,
but I am a man of prayer.
5 They repay me evil for good,
and hatred for my friendship.
6 Appoint someone evil to oppose my enemy;
let an accuser stand at his right hand.
7 When he is tried, let him be found guilty,
and may his prayers condemn him.
8 May his days be few;
may another take his place of leadership.

16 For he never thought of doing a kindness,
but hounded to death the poor
and the needy and the brokenhearted.
17 He loved to pronounce a curse—
may it come back on him.
He found no pleasure in blessing—
may it be far from him.
18 He wore cursing as his garment;
it entered into his body like water,
into his bones like oil.
19 May it be like a cloak wrapped about him,
like a belt tied forever around him.
20 May this be the LORD’s payment to my accusers,
to those who speak evil of me.
28 While they curse, may you bless;
may those who attack me be put to shame,
but may your servant rejoice.
29 May my accusers be clothed with disgrace
and wrapped in shame as in a cloak.
You know, many of us, but certainly not all, are not particularly fond of religion because of the hurt/hate that emanates from so many religions,  religious leaders and adherents.

But we really should start reading the Bible/Scriptures because there is a lot of good stuff in there that these "religionists" conveniently have forgotten or purposely ignored.  We should give them their own words on a platter.
