Kansas Speaker Mike O’Neal’s Prayer for President Obama’s Death
Kansas Republican House Speaker Mike O’Neal stepped onto the national stage last week when he was forced to apologize to First Lady Michelle Obama after an email he forwarded to fellow lawmakers calling her ‘Mrs. YoMama’ made national news.
O’Neal’s offense giving impulses were not over, however. Another email he forwarded to his fellow House Republicans asked them to to pray Psalm 109, which contains these verses:
‘Let his days be few; and let another take his office.
Let his children be fatherless, and his wife a widow.’
At this moment I hope that a contingent of the United States Secret Service are making their way to Kansas, obviously. But look at the rest of this psalm if you will:
‘When he shall be judged, let him be condemned: and let his prayer become sin.
Let his days be few; and let another take his office.
Let his children be fatherless, and his wife a widow.
Let his children be continually vagabonds, and beg: let them seek their bread also out of their desolate places.
Let the extortioner catch all that he hath; and let the strangers spoil his labor.
Let there be none to extend mercy unto him: neither let there be any to favor his fatherless children.’
O’Neal is calling for prayers for the death of the President, the First Lady and even the President’s children. He concluded the message to his fellow Republicans with a personal endorsement: ‘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!!!!!!’
No racism here. Just another pious Republican praying for the good of all…
