    A somewhat ghastly proposal when aimed at a specific person, that. And rather shameful.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    Re: Psalm 109:8

    There’s a new slogan making its way onto car bumpers and across the Internet. It reads simply: “Pray for Obama: Psalm 109:8”

    A nice sentiment?

    Maybe not.

    The psalm reads, “Let his days be few; and let another take his office.”

    I sure agree with you, Spot.

    Funny or sinister? No, those aren't the only two choices. Heartfelt is another one. Entire congregations and millions are praying Psalm 109:8, in abundance. We pray sincerely for God's mercy on America. Amen.

    Bull****. You need to consider how the psalm continues...
    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. May his descendants be cut off, their names blotted out from the next generation. May the iniquity of his fathers be remembered before the LORD; may the sin of his mother never be blotted out. May their sins always remain before the LORD, that he may cut off the memory of them from the earth.

    For he never thought of doing a kindness, but hounded to death the poor and the needy and the brokenhearted. He loved to pronounce a curse - may it come on him; he found no pleasure in blessing - may it be far from him. He wore cursing as his garment; it entered into his body like water, into his bones like oil. May it be like a cloak wrapped about him, like a belt tied forever around him.

    Re: Psalm 109:8

    This is only to be expected really, when you consider how many presidents have been murdered in America over time. There isn't a man or woman born, who can please all the people all of the time. It seems to me that anybody going for the position of President in the U.S.A. is on a suicide mission. Perhaps somebody can inform me of how many Presidents have met with a violent end at the hand of American citizens?

    Re: Psalm 109:8

    Hi spot. I know very well how that Psalm continues. That's why the colon and verse 8 appear, very specific.

    Again, we pray for God's grace on America. We believe it's on the way and we're already grateful. But that's another subject. Good day!

    Re: Psalm 109:8

    My personal view....it's WRONG and spiteful. Are things so bad in the US ? He was democratically elected to serve his term. When that's over I'm sure 'the people' will 'speak' and he will be in / out ...whatever the voters wish.

    What a lazy way to get a point over....to steal it (out of context) from the Bible

    The entire Psalm is a heartrending peice of prose if anyone cares to read it.

    This tone will be the doom of Christianity, IMO. Christians should heed the warnings of their own doctrine.
