Kansas Speaker of the House Mike O'Neil sent an e-mail to his colleagues requesting them to pray for Obama's death. The exact prayer he sent was Psalm 109, the text of which includes:
When he shall be judged, let him be condemned: and let his prayer become sin.
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 labor.
Let there be none to extend mercy unto him: neither let there be any to favor his fatherless children.
Wow. Just....wow. I don't care if you're Republican, Democrat, Independent, Communist, whatever. It's one thing to call a political opponent names, do mudslinging, counter his policies with ones of your own, pray for him to lose the election, etc. It's another thing to actually pray for him to die and for his wife and children to suffer for the rest of their lives. I hope this hate-filled idiot doesn't last long in politics.
