Have you seen this bumper sticker yet?
It looks pretty harmless doesn't it? Pray for Obama, with a reference to the Psalms. What could be more harmless than the Psalms?
Unless you've read the Psalms, that is.
Here is the verse that is referred to on the bumper sticker.
Let his days be few; and let another take his office. Psalm 109:8
Like almost everything else in the Bible, it's not too clear, is it?
When applied to Barack Obama, it could just be asking God to help Sarah Palin defeat him in 2012.
Or it could be praying for his death now, natural or otherwise.
But let's look at the context.
Here is the verse immediately after the verse on the bumper sticker.
Let his children be fatherless, and his wife a widow. Psalm 109:9
Well, that clears it up, doesn't it? The prayer is either asking God to kill Obama, or asking God to inspire someone else to do it for him.

(Don't you love it when the Bible is recognized as hate speech?)
