Kansas Speaker O’Neal asks House GOP to pray for Obama’s death

Kansas House Speaker Mike O’Neal is under fire after asking Republican House members to pray for President Barack Obama’s death. O’Neal made the request via an email he forwarded to GOP colleagues in the House. In an email sent in December, O’Neal asked his fellow Republicans to pray Psalm 109, which contains the following lines:

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


...

Think Progress reports that O’Neal forwarded the prayer with his own message:

“At last — I can honestly voice a Biblical prayer for our president! Look it up — it is word for word! Let us all bow our heads and pray. Brothers and Sisters, can I get an AMEN? AMEN!!!!!!”

4. This article is a year old and O'Neal is no longer Speaker.

I don't think he is in the legislature any longer.

6. I remember this from last year.

But, I wouldn't put it past the GOPers to do it again. In any case it seems that this prayer has been as effective as Gov. Perry praying for rain. He got more wild fires IIRC.

5. Wow, this is some sick shit, asking Gawd to contradict His own self

Is this the same Gawd that admonishes followers to "render unto Ceasar that which
is Ceasar's" and to "pray for" those in authority that they would rule wisely and
compassionately?

If so, I don't recognize "Him".

7. I hate it when I hear "christians" like this offering prayers, I don't think this is WWJD

This should not be a proud moment for these words or prayers, shame on him.

15. I take it they did not think ahead.

If President Obama dies, then they have to deal with Vice President Biden. I really don't think they would like that.
