Here is a disturbing new trend appearing in America:
There’s a new slogan making its way onto car bumpers and across the Internet. It reads simply: “Pray for Obama: Psalm 109:8”
A nice sentiment?
The psalm reads, “Let his days be few; and let another take his office.”
Presidential criticism through witty slogans is nothing new. Bumper stickers, t-shirts, and hats with “1/20/09” commemorated President Bush’s last day in office.
But the verse immediately following the psalm referenced is a bit more ominous: “Let his children be fatherless, and his wife a widow.”
How “Christian” of them. Not really. Psalms is one of the greatest books in the Bible to twist and mangle into your own beliefs. It deals mainly with human emotions, which makes it easy to twist and mangle into anyone’s own belief.
