Thank nonexistent God that prayer doesn’t work, esp. imprecatory prayer. Imrecatory prayer is when you are a believer and you hate on some peeps so much that you ask, what “Our Hero” Christopher Hitchens calls the Celestial Dictator, to f*ck peeps up. In essence it is a Christian curse and just like the Gypsy curse, it is totally fakey fake.
Mikey Weinstein of Military Religious Freedom Foundation and Barry Lynn of Americans United for Separtaion of Church and State (two very worthy and awesome org’s if you ask me) are the recipients of this very silly and yet hateful Christian voodoo. I thought that you were not supposed to ask God directly for such thingies, but apparently no one told this dude, Gordon Klingenschmitt. Gordy says…
“Let us pray. Almighty God, today we pray imprecatory prayers from Psalm 109 against the enemies of religious liberty, including Barry Lynn and Mikey Weinstein, who issued press releases this week attacking me personally. God, do not remain silent, for wicked men surround us and tell lies about us. We bless them, but they curse us. Therefore find them guilty, not me. Let their days be few, and replace them with Godly people. Plunder their fields, and seize their assets. Cut off their descendants, and remember their sins, in Jesus’ name. Amen.”
Wow, check out that huge biblical hate, ya know with their pointing of fingers, plundering, cursing, replace them’z, Cut off their descendants…then, amen. Wow. Double wow. If Team A calls prayer ‘wishful thinking’, then I guess we can call this ‘wishful hating’. What happened to turning the other cheek and forgiveness. I guess Gordy missed that sermon.
* Dispatches is so awesome. Og article.
* Psalm 9 which among other things says, or asks, God kill this dude and leave his children fatherless and his wife a widow. Wow, nothing says Gods love like killing someone that disagrees with you.
