The Christian Science Monitor reports a fundamentalist campaign urging people through bumper stickers and t-shirts to “pray for Obama”, citing Psalm 109:8. The joke is that the verse in question reads, “Let his days be few; and let another take his office.” The problem is that the next line is, “Let his children be fatherless, and his wife a widow,” leading some to interpret it as a coded message for “I hope the president dies.”
(For the record, I’m pretty sure that if it were meant to be a coded death wish, it would have read “Psalm 109:8-19”.)
Once again the “pro-Obama Dungeons & Dragons crowd” is summoned to civic duty. Citizen! At this critical juncture in history, can you afford NOT to game?
