"A nice sentiment?
The psalm reads, "Let his days be few; and let another take his office."
Presidential criticism through witty slogans is nothing new. Bumper stickers, t-shirts and hats with "1/20/09" commemorated President Bush's last day in office.
But the verse immediately following the psalm referenced is a bit more ominous: "Let his children be fatherless, and his wife a widow."
Psalm 109 in its entirety can be found here.
The merchandise in question was sold at an online store called "Cafe Press" (no link). That online store is open to anyone with the monthly fee, an entrepreneurial spirit and products to sell.
Think Progress is reporting that the merchandise is no longer for sale.
And I say "Amen!" Psalm 109 is referred to as a " imprecatory prayer", and is loudly denounced in modern Christian philosophy. It's offensive & counter-productive, to say the least.
Of course, this blather is not nearly as aggressive and vile as the wishful violence of assassination chic spewed for 8 years, by the Left, upon George Bush. The most disgusting example was the 2006 Toronto International Film Festival 'faux documentary' depicting the assassination of G.W. Bush. Oddly enough, the above ABC news article neglected to mention any of those facts.
In short, right or left, death wishes have NO PLACE in political discourse. The ballot box is the only place to remove your rivals. Period.
Thankfully, when so-called "rightwing" Christian whackjobs spew their cranial diarrhea, they are loudly denounced and marginalized as the aberrant nutjobs that they are.
Unfortunately, "Leftwing" Christian nutballs are too often embraced by our liberal brethren.
