So Christian of them.
At a major event for conservative Christians this morning, a Republican senator joked about praying for President Obama’s “days to be short.”
Sen. David Perdue, a freshman senator from Georgia, opened his remarks at the Faith & Freedom Coalition’s Road to Majority conference by encouraging attendees to pray for President Obama. But, he added in a joking tone, they need to pray for him in a very specific way: “We should pray for him like Psalms 109:8 says: May his days be short,” the senator said, smiling wryly.
The crowd chuckled and he moved on with his address.
The rest of that passage, which Perdue did not recite, reads, “May another take his place of leadership. May his children be fatherless and his wife a widow. May his children be wandering beggars; may they be driven from their ruined homes.”
Perdue’s joke drew immediate criticism. Adam Jentleson, a spokesman for Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, tweeted, “Republican Senator David Perdue is praying for President Obama to die. This is why Trump is the GOP nominee.”June 10, 2016 at 11:57 am #20582proud2baconservativeSpectator
I think it was a joke.
I bet there were similar jokes about Bush.
I bet there were some fist pumps when Scalia dropped dead.
We pray for President Obama in church regularly. Not to die, but that he might lead according to the will of God, though there is little time left for him to amend his ways.June 10, 2016 at 12:08 pm #20583

and you think you have a pretty good shot at being led by the will of God with Trump at the helm? Seriously?June 10, 2016 at 1:12 pm #20585mike_kolbParticipant
yep, Vit had it nailed…. GO FUCK YOURSELF.June 10, 2016 at 1:19 pm #20586
” according to the will of God ”
Guess what, ace, you and your group have a perverted sense of what the will of God is.
For example, your stance on abortion is in direct conflict with Genesis 2.7. Life does not begin at conception but rather it begins with the first breath of air (nefesh haya). All the crap your ilk of miscreants come up with is easily debunked, so read up before sticking your pie hole out any further on that one.
Moving on, your stance on America being a Christian nation, often used by your brainless cohorts as a root of many of the twisted policies promoted by the right wing twits, is false. This country was founded by those escaping the religious oppression you now condone.
Thirdly, the notion that practicing your religion is being impinged by the government whom won’t allow local jurisdictions, no matter how fucked up their voters are, to remove freedoms guaranteed by the constitution because it’s against the religious rhetoric, often twisted and misinterpreted, that has been foisted on the flock by greedy, homophobic church leaders that are by any interpretation, evil motherfuckers that will prey on the stupid and the ignorant.
Posts like yours are clearly only meant as incendiary to the energy of the discussion and are mounting evidence that you still do not know how to be involved with this forum. So while you are prognosticating about what others think, remember that you are still banned from this forum and every time you act like a douche bag is just bringing you one step closer to being thrown out again. Dan is already aware of your latest attempt to interrupt the flow around here and it won’t take many emails to him for your end to be had. It can’t happen soon enough.June 10, 2016 at 4:27 pm #20587radiodorkSpectator
LMAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Oh the dems are so desperate!June 10, 2016 at 4:58 pm #20589
Keep laughing, asswipe. You’ll be the next to go and frankly, right now there is a strong case to be made to get rid of you. The only fact that puts F&B ahead of you is that he is already permanently banned.
If you keep posting like you have in the last month or so and it will happen sooner then later. You forget that posters that are disruptive, don’t answer questions about their post, continually post non sequitur gibberish that is off topic . . . well you get the idea . . . or not.
Yeah and of course, first you’ll deny it, then you’ll say it’s a witch hunt for conservatives (not true) and lastly you’ll claim that this forum sucks so you don’t care if you get excised out.
We’ve seen it all. Call it the ballad of pocket radio, or better yet the effenbeenoclueski shuffle.
Lastly, and to your comment, the “dems are so desperate” is really you showing us that you can not carry on an intelligent conversation but prefer to post the latest meme from the Trump camp. Face it, you’re backing and promoting a total political disaster. It isn’t going to happen. The media wants to sell ads, so they won’t tell you the truth which is there is next to a zero chance of Trump winning the election in November. Odds Shark has Trump at -230 and Hillary at +290, so if you really think Trump can win, put your money into it.June 10, 2016 at 6:32 pm #20590
Good thing for Obama is that prayer has been confirmed to be 0.0% effective.June 11, 2016 at 4:16 am #20603proud2baconservativeSpectator
Go fuck yourself.
Obviously you don’t like your assertions to be challenged, but I maintain my position that it was a joke that should have been ignored. It’s just another example of “gotcha” journalism from the left.
Have a nice day.June 11, 2016 at 1:26 pm #20604
How Donald Trump Bankrupted His Atlantic City Casinos, but Still Earned Millions
The Trump Plaza Casino and Hotel is now closed, its windows clouded over by sea salt. Only a faint outline of the gold letters spelling out T-R-U-M-P remains visible on the exterior of what was once this city’s premier casino.
Not far away, the long-failing Trump Marina Hotel Casino was sold at a major loss five years ago and is now known as the Golden Nugget.
At the nearly deserted eastern end of the boardwalk, the Trump Taj Mahal, now under new ownership, is all that remains of the casino empire Donald J. Trump assembled here more than a quarter-century ago. Years of neglect show: The carpets are frayed and dust-coated chandeliers dangle above the few customers there to play the penny slot machines.
On the presidential campaign trail, Mr. Trump, the presumptive Republican nominee, often boasts of his success in Atlantic City, of how he outwitted the Wall Street firms that financed his casinos and rode the value of his name to riches. A central argument of his candidacy is that he would bring the same business prowess to the Oval Office, doing for America what he did for his companies.
“Atlantic City fueled a lot of growth for me,” Mr. Trump said in an interview in May, summing up his 25-year history here. “The money I took out of there was incredible.”
His audacious personality and opulent properties brought attention — and countless players — to Atlantic City as it sought to overtake Las Vegas as the country’s gambling capital. But a close examination of regulatory reviews, court records and security filings by The New York Times leaves little doubt that Mr. Trump’s casino business was a protracted failure. Though he now says his casinos were overtaken by the same tidal wave that eventually slammed this seaside city’s gambling industry, in reality he was failing in Atlantic City long before Atlantic City itself was failing.
But even as his companies did poorly, Mr. Trump did well. He put up little of his own money, shifted personal debts to the casinos and collected millions of dollars in salary, bonuses and other payments. The burden of his failures fell on investors and others who had bet on his business acumen.
In three interviews with The Times since late April, Mr. Trump acknowledged in general terms that high debt and lagging revenues had plagued his casinos. He did not recall details about some issues, but did not question The Times’s findings. He repeatedly emphasized that what really mattered about his time in Atlantic City was that he had made a lot of money there.
Mr. Trump assembled his casino empire by borrowing money at such high interest rates — after telling regulators he would not — that the businesses had almost no chance to succeed.

I enjoy having my assertions challenged. That’s how we learn. However, trolls like you don’t bring anything to the table other than trolling.
And how many times have you been 86’d? Why do you keep coming back? You’re like a creepy stalker.June 11, 2016 at 6:50 pm #20620
Factually speaking, the right wing Christian baboons are quite violent. That sort of makes the notion that he was kidding totally baseless. The extreme conservatives are, in essence, a terrorist organization. When white males of the far right carry out violent attacks, neocons and Republicans typically describe them as lone-wolf extremists rather than people who are part of terrorist networks or well-organized terrorist movements. Yet many of the terrorist attacks in the United States have been carried out by people who had long histories of networking with other terrorists. In fact, most of the terrorist activity occurring in the United States in recent years has not come from Muslims, but from a combination of radical Christianists, white supremacists and far-right militia groups.
