Here, yet again, is an example of Klanservatism at its core.
This is why I don’t even bother trying to engage a winger in discussion. They aim to have it THEIR way, period, and thus are not to be taken with the least bit of seriousness. And I don’t; I pour derision on them, to their faces.
Sadly, Klansas voters don’t see things the way that I do. They apparently think that this lump of shit is fit to be their House Speaker.
These people are scum. RUSHpubliSCUM is the perfect designation for them.
Earlier that same week, the Lawrence Journal-World was sent another email that O’Neal had forwarded to House Republicans that referred to President Obama and a Bible verse that says “Let his days be few” and calls for his children to be without a father and his wife to be widowed.
Nick Sementelli at Faith in Public Life notes that Psalm 109, which is a prayer for the death of a leader, became a popular conservative meme after Obama’s election. The “tongue-in-cheek” prayer for the president was seen on bumper stickers. The relevant part of the psalm reads:
Let his days be few; and let another take his office
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 forwarded the prayer with his own message: “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!!!!!!”
O’Neal’s office refuses to apologize for the email, insisting that the message was only referring to Obama’s days in office. Sementelli notes the response of a Rockford Register Star columnist who explains why this excuse won’t do.
Speaking to a reader he writes, “You say that verse 8 of Psalm 109, as applied to President Obama, does not suggest a wish for his death. But the first five words of verse 8 are: ‘Let his days be few.’ And verse 9 says: ‘Let his children be fatherless, and his wife a widow.’…You suggest yourself that scripture should not be ‘taken out of context.’ Well, the context of Psalm 109 is a wish for someone’s death.”
Ladies and Gentlemen, if this is “Christianity,” please-keep it. I have relatives that practice this form of “Christianity,” and these “Christians” are not a miniscule piece of the pie in America-they are a measurable component of the “religious.”
I prefer my evil ways, which guarantee me a trip to Hell. At least there, I won’t have to deal with any of these inbred bastards.
