Republican Publicly Prays For Obama's Death

I’m not a religious man, but I do believe that we are, for lack of a better word, “pray” at times. Sure, we might call it a wish, or a hope, or a dream; we might call it “putting it out there” in the universe. But we all ask for “stuff,” like hoping our friends and family are safe in bad weather; wishing that the plane won’t crash; putting it out in the universe that your loved one pulls through an illness or surgery.

We all do it. What most of us don’t do, however, is call ourselves Christian, and then pray for the death of another human being.

No, that would be Georgia Republican Asshat Senator David Perdue who offered a prayer for the death of President Obama.

Yes. He. Did. While at an event called Faith and Freedom he asked attendees to pray for Obama:
"We should pray like Psalm 109:8 says: Let his days be few"
Here’s the rest of that prayer:
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 labour.
Let there be none to extend mercy unto him: neither let there be any to favour his fatherless children.
Let his posterity be cut off; and in the generation following let their name be blotted out.
Let the iniquity of his fathers be remembered with the Lord; and let not the sin of his mother be blotted out.
How is this possible? How can someone who calls themselves a good Christian man, a man of faith, attend some sort of Faith and Freedom Redneck Cousin-F**king Hoedown and ask people to pray that children are left fatherless, and wives become widows.

And how is it possible that the Georgia Senate did not censure Perdue for his Death Wish …

Oh, yeah … Georgia.

Never mind.

Christian and religion aside, what he said or prayed is just about treason in my book. Treason: "the crime of betraying one's country, especially by attempting to kill the sovereign or overthrow the government. synonyms: treachery, disloyalty, betrayal, faithlessness; sedition, subversion, mutiny, rebellion;"

Yeah, but he said that's not what he meant.

It's a trend, I guess. Say what you want and then deny you meant it.

can we hope that perdue drops dead?

Shameful. I wonder if he could be charged with sedition? Have you noticed that the more politically correct we try to be, the more nasty things become? It's two different camps, the politically correct and the nasties on both sides of issues. I have a prayer, Lord, help me not to be like the haters who invoke your name to justify their own political, personal agendas. A-men and A-women.

This just demonstrates how horrifying his mindset really is.

Lest we forget the old testament is full of some pretty hateful people saying some pretty hateful things. Now we have hateful people using those hateful words to justify their own evil desires. Where will it end? Someone shooting Obama and then saying the Lord says it's okay because Obama was lying and was really born in Kenya? This man should be thrown out of the Georgia senate post haste
