On the run-up to the recent presidential election, I kept seeing references to Psalm 109:8, usually with the words “Pray for our President”. I really didn’t think much of it, until I actually bothered to look it up, and then I realized just how evil Christians can be and how hateful and vile their rhetoric.
May his days be few; may another take his place of leadership. [Psalm 109:8]
That, by itself is not awful, per se. It is only when you read on past verse 8, that the full impact of the vile, hateful bigots that promote and adhere to this garbage, is revealed…
9 May his children be fatherless and his wife a widow.
10 May his children be wandering beggars; may they be driven from their ruined homes.
11 May a creditor seize all he has; may strangers plunder the fruits of his labor.
12 May no one extend kindness to him or take pity on his fatherless children.
13 May his descendants be cut off, their names blotted out from the next generation.
14 May the iniquity of his fathers be remembered before the Lord; may the sin of his mother never be blotted out.
15 May their sins always remain before the Lord, that he may blot out their name from the earth.
Psalm 109:8 is not just a cutesy soundbite on twitter – there is a full lineup of merchandise available, so you can announce your narrow-minded, hateful bigotry to the world. Of course, we all know that Christians cherry-pick verses from the bible to suit their needs, so it comes as no surprise whatsoever that I haven’t seen a single reference to Romans 13, posted by a Christian:
1 Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God.
2 Consequently, whoever rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves. [Romans 13]
And it is not because this verse has not been floating about in abundance after the election – after all, many atheists are asking “Now that God has chosen your leader (as stated in Romans 13), will you resepct him as He commanded?”
Unfortunately, I think we all know the answer to this…
Christians will blame Hurricane Sandy (which was obviously Gods wrath because of the gays) for making Obama look good at the last minute, and the the Devil stepped in while God was distracted making hurricanes and with a bit of hocus-pocus-voter-fraud, the black guy won and the Apocalypse will be over and done before Thanksgiving. Meanwhile, the Muslim mothership will land, take over the White House, institute Sharia Law and Obama will be last seen eating a bacon sandwich in Santas Sleigh, being pulled by 72 virgin men, into the the sky and off to Never Never Land, while the Dark Lord sodomizes the corpse of Jesus.
