    I was in slow-moving traffic the other day and the car in front of me had a BO bumper sticker on it. It read: "Pray for Obama. Psalm 109:8".

    My Bible was lying on the dashboard & I opened it up to the scripture & read it. I had a good laugh.

    Psalm 109:8 - "Let his days be few; and let another take his office. "

    At last - I can voice a Biblical prayer for our president! Look it up - it
    is word for word! Let us all bow our heads and pray.

    Yea.... this has been discussed on and off for a year. I'm not sure why you feel we need yet another thread on it. Maybe it's so the lefties can scream that it is a death thread against POTUS... AGAIN.

    The next line of that prayer:

    Let his children be fatherless,
    and his wife a widow.

    May the Bible be quoted where it serves its intended purpose and not be abused by partisan hacker-y.

    I propose we all bow our heads, instead, and pray for the VERY GOOD HEALTH and the VERY LONG LIFE of President Obama. And yes, I'm serious and yes I mean every word of that.

    I join with anyone who seeks that this President's time in Office be limited to just the first term, and that his minions in Congress be winnowed by the natural selection of voters to throw out the idiots.

    But as much as we may loath President Obama's politics and his Official acts as President, I see no good reason to pray for his premature passing. In fact, I find that repulsive. I believe most conservatives would agree with my view.

    It's quite clear what the full context of this prayer is. It is wishing for the POTUS to die, plain and simple. There is no debating it. At the same time, it's also calling him a wicked man who stands with Satan.

    No shit sherlock? Might that not be why I said that the left would claim it's a death threat? Moron.

    In fact, the quote includes only the line specified. If you knew how to read the bible you would know that. At the risk of repeating myself... Moron.

    No, it is not. If it were the text would read "Palms 109:8-9" - it does NOT say that. It says "109:8" That is one line - just one - "Let his days be few; an let another take his office".

    Don't be ignorant CG. Of course they won't quote the whole thing as to not be obvious about it. However, anyone who knows the bible knows that when you read verses, you're suppose to take them in full context.

    For example, when people are quoting the 10 commandments, much of the time they are failing to recognize that the same book they quote from has a death sentence for not following such rules.
