Praying For Obama's Death? You're A Shitty Christian.

I have seen a few folks on Facebook with a status suggesting that they are praying for the death of Barack Obama. I was a bit unnerved by it, but figured it was just a localized thing, spreading to the dyed-in-the-wool southern Christian contingent amongst my contacts. But I've come to find out, it's a much, much bigger thing than that.

The size of the movement is actually irrelevant - even one person doing it invokes a simple sentiment within me: this person claiming to be a Christian is praying for the death of someone. And that makes them a shitty Christian and a hypocrite.

In fact, it's not Christ-like at all, so it makes you exactly un-Christian. And if you do it, you can go fuck yourself.

It's obvious this Christian hasn't read their bible, because if they had, they'd know about Romans 13, which states:

"Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. Consequently, he who rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves."

Not reading the book that your entire faith is built upon? Well, that's pretty pathetic, I think. But not practicing what you preach? That makes you a hypocrite. Advocating that others do the same, especially in the name of your religion... Well, that sounds an awful lot like fundamentalism to me, and we can see by the gigantic hole in the ground in New York City what that gets us.

This is not exclusive to Christians, by the way. Anyone practicing any religion where peace and forgiveness are cornerstones of the faith, who then pray for the death of someone, are fucking hypocrites, and can go fuck themselves.

Feel free to share this with your friends if you agree. And if you disagree, well... The line to punch me in the face starts around the block. Anyone who feels up to it is welcome to try. But I'm not one of you, so don't expect me to turn the other cheek.
