Using the Bible to Threaten Obama’s Life

The Cleveland Leader has an article about this lovely T-shirt.

Not that it needs to be said again, but Christians really are terrible people. This time they are attempting to be cute by referencing a Bible verse that says:

“Let his days be few; and let another take his office.” (Psalm 109:8)

Nice. And, of course, we’re never quite sure if Christians ever bother reading the rest of any of their Bible quotes, but the very next verse says:

“May his children be fatherless and his wife a widow.” (Psalm 109:9)

I really can’t imagine anyone that isn’t crimminally insane printing up and selling t-shirts like this, but that’s a self righteous religious dick for you. I have as of yet to hear what the hell the religious right’s problem with Obama is. Why weren’t there these death threats with other Democratic Presidents? Well, there is the “he’s black” thing. People love to deny it, but, for the life of me I can’t see what else there is. Differences on how to fix health care isn’t enough to threaten to kill anyone. Abortion has been federally legal since 1973, and there isn’t really anything the President can do about that anyway. The bailout was started by the Bush camp. I’m sorry, but the race issue seems to be it. These people are racist assholes.

Threatening the President, even as a joke, is, of course, a crime. Will hiding behind the Bible protect these dicks?

  1. Well the Bible also says(in Romans 13: 1-7):
    1Everyone 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. 2Consequently, he who rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves. 3For rulers hold no terror for those who do right, but for those who do wrong. Do you want to be free from fear of the one in authority? Then do what is right and he will commend you. 4For he is God’s servant to do you good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword for nothing. He is God’s servant, an agent of wrath to bring punishment on the wrongdoer. 5Therefore, it is necessary to submit to the authorities, not only because of possible punishment but also because of conscience. 6This is also why you pay taxes, for the authorities are God’s servants, who give their full time to governing. 7Give everyone what you owe him: If you owe taxes, pay taxes; if revenue, then revenue; if respect, then respect; if honor, then honor.

    Oops (to the tacky t-shirt creators).

  2. John Says:

    Furthermore, it also says:

    Titus 2:1 & 2 “Remind them to be subject to rulers, to authorities, to be obedient, to be ready for every good deed, to malign no one, to be uncontentious, gentle, showing every consideration for all men.”

    1 Timothy 2:1-2 “First of all, then, I urge that entreaties and prayers, petitions and thanksgivings be made on behalf of all men, for Kings and all who are in authority, in order that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and dignity.”

    They kind of neglected that part as well to make their t-shirt. Jerks.

    They need the insight from Reverend Lovejoy on The Simpsons, “…oh just about everything is a sin, have you ever sat down and read this thing? Technically we’re not allowed to go to the bathroom.”

    • That is my favorite Rev Lovejoy quote. Along with:

      Lisa: Doesn’t the Bible teach us “Judge not lest ye be judged,” Reverend?
      Reverend Lovejoy: I think it may be somewhere towards the back.

  3. Ah! The imprecatory prayer… praying for their god to ain down death and disaster on their enemies and trespassers. Nothing says love more than an imprecatory prayer.

    I recall a few months ago a right wing religious fanatic preacher said that any Christian who doesn’t use imprecatory prayer against Obama is not a True Christian. Nutty Fucktards.

    My fav simpson quote
    Homer: “But Marge, what if we are praying to the wrong god!? Then every day we are making him madder and madder.”
