    'Let his children be fatherless, and his wife a widow:' Republican Speaker's controversial email targets President





    Just a week after a Republican House speaker issued an apology to First Lady Michelle Obama for referring to her as 'Mrs. YoMama' and resembling her to the Grinch, another email is circulating connecting the president to a Biblical passage that prays for harm to his family



    The most recent email by Kansas' Mike O'Neal quotes a Bible verse for President Barack Obama that points readers to a scripture in the Bible titled 'a cry for vengeance.'
    Psalm 109, referred to in the email to fellow lawmakers, prays that 'his days be few ... his wife be widowed and his children be fatherless.'


    According to the Lawrence Journal-World who read the email sent by Speaker O’Neal, the prayer was forwarded with his own attached message reading:


    '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!!!!!!'

    LJW reports that both recent emails were sent by the house speaker through his private email address.

    funny how they keep leaving that 8 off the end...

    Psalm 109:8 is what is referenced, and has been referenced before (I believe there was a thread in which a church with a sign out front mentioning Psalm 109:8 was discussed).

    It states...

    The general libtard reaction was that you are not allowed to quote a single passage from the Bible. You MUST have meant the entire verse, regardless of which line you specifically actually quoted.

    Perhaps putting the whole thing in context might be a good idea:

    The House Speaker is putting himself in the position of the wicked ones who are slandering the king, who is asking God for protection against them.

    I think that's quite appropriate.
