I first heard about this Bible verse being used as a “prayer for Obama” last night. It makes me sick.
If you are embracing or promoting this mentality, you are embracing evil. You are bowing at the altar of the same twisted idea of a god that would justify flying jet airplanes into skyscrapers or parking a moving truck full of explosives outside of a daycare.
You don’t have to agree with our President or his party. You don’t have to be excited about a new health care plan. You don’t have to like the fact that he is currently our President and you can throw all your efforts and prayers into voting him out of office when these 4 years are done.
But for Christ’s sake: let go of ignorance and choose good over evil.
Please. Before evil has opportunity to take over.

This is terrifying, plain and simple. If we (Christians) don’t start behaving ourselves we shouldn’t be surprised if the non-Christian authorities really clamp down on us.
Why is it that crazy Christians make me SOOO much more angry than smug, mean spirited atheists? I think it might be because we create those atheists with every stupid, hateful thing we do.
Instead of “turning” well-meaning atheists into new believers we are turning them into well-armed adversaries. Oh, it makes me want to /quit this planet!

Wow, that is awful. Yet, it’s not the first time I’ve heard something like this. A while back, an elderly gentleman who lives in my condo complex engaged me in political debate (despite my efforts to avoid participation) by saying “Someone should just shoot him.” I was so appalled, I was speechless. When I recovered I excused myself to leave, to which he said, “I bet if we weren’t talking about Obama, you wouldn’t have to go.” I said, “Yes, you’re right.”
I’m a Christian, but hey, as far as I am concerned, quoting a Bible verse like that and waging hate against our president (or anyone, for that matter) who was fairly elected isn’t a “Christian” activity no matter what religious label people pin on themselves themselves. Is this letting one’s Christ light shine? I think not.
