It is dismaying when any group which seems to be praying for the president’s death has over one million members. A current Facebook group seems to be praying and is that big. As most of us know, big doesn’t equal bright.
Here is the name, exactly as posted:
"DEAR LORD, THIS YEAR YOU TOOK MY FAVORITE ACTOR, PATRICK SWAYZIE. YOU TOOK MY FAVORITE ACTRESS, FARAH FAWCETT. YOU TOOK MY FAVORITE SINGER, MICHAEL JACKSON. I JUST WANTED TO LET YOU KNOW, MY FAVORITE PRESIDENT IS BARACK OBAMA. AMEN."
In their ALL CAPS prayer, the founders (and fans) claim their favorite actor was Patrick Swayze (whose name they misspelled). Their favorite actress was Farrah Fawcett, whose name they also misspelled. Their favorite singer was Michael Jackson (which speaks for itself). Listing Barack Obama as their "favorite president" is obviously a "take him, too" sort of thing.
Their favorite president obviously isn’t Barack Obama, meaning they think the lord is too stupid to catch a lie when he hears it. Many deities become angry when people lie to them. They create worldwide catastrophes. They smite.
To me, this looks more like a cross-stitch sampler than a prayer. But just in case, over one million people might want to apologize when they pray tonight. Crow doesn’t taste good, but I bet it beats a godly smiting.
