BEWARE of Pleasant-Sounding Bumber Stickers...

See: Beware of Psalms 109:8 Bumper Sticker


You'll see tea bag crowds touting these bumper stickers and the catch phrase: "Pray for the President" or "Pray for Obama."


Here's what Psalms 109:8 (and 9) says:


"Let his days be few, [And] let another take his office.

"Let his children be fatherless, And his wife a widow."


Who could have the nerve to use these verses out of context and call themselves CHRISTIAN?


I'm tired. Tired of the way the Bible is twisted to beat over the heads of the people and manipulate the weak-minded among us.


How is this any different than Al Qaeda or the Taliban twisting the Koran to justify murder?


In verse 3: "They have also surrounded me with words of hatred, And fought against me without a cause."


This is the mental state of the tea bag fringe that feel they've "lost their country," or their vaulted place in the pecking social order (don't give me money or a job: just make me feel superior).


Sarah-"Going-Rogue"-Palin manipulates this to great effect at her rallies after she repeated the lies:


"Obama doesn't live in our kind of America." (paraphrased)

"He palls around with terrorist." (at EIGHT?)


...and never once challenged anyone that said "terrorist"; "kill him."


This is a recipe for assassination, JUSTIFIED by the Bible out-of-context.


Please note:


Protect President Obama from Right-Wing Menace


"30 death threats a day..."

"400% increase in threats from President Bush..."

"We have half the number of agents we need, but requests for more agents have fallen on deaf ears at headquarters,"


This is a long haul campaign. It didn't end on November 4, 2008. It won't end until the country is repaired from the damage of the last 8 years; Obama winning a 2nd Nobel Peace Prize and he, Michelle, Malia and Sasha SAFELY back home in Chicago in 2016.


Speaking of the Bible, when they throw you Psalms 109:8 - 9, hit them with this:


"Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence."


1 Timothy 2: 1 - 2


Grace, Peace and ACTIVISM!
