American Taliban: Christian evangelicals

Filed under: belief,Criticism,Culture,Intolerance,Media,Morality,Religion — tildeb @ 9:05 pm

From the Christian Science Monitor comes this article about a new ad campaign on tee shirts and teddy bears and bumper stickers:

“Pray for Obama: Psalm 109:8”

How cute is that?

Know what it means?

“Let his days be few; and let another take his office.”

The next verse says:

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

Not so cute.

Where is the ‘moral’ outrage from patriotic Americans? Where are the christian evangelical leaders denouncing this invitation for god or some mortal whack job to off the sitting president? Oh sure, you’ll hear apologists saying that this little diddy means that the praying bearers only want Obama to have one term. Yeah, right. And sales for Left Behind represent the moral decay of secularists.

Isn’t this a fine example of how christianity is all about love?
