Using the Bible to Threaten Obama’s Life
The Cleveland Leader has an article about this lovely T-shirt.
“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?
