    At a major religious-right conference, Republican Senator David Perdue implied that Christians should pray for President Obama to die.
    "We need to be very specific about how we pray" for President Obama, Perdue said. "We should pray like Psalms 109:8 says: 'Let his days be few, and let another have his office.'"
    The very next verse of Psalm 109 is: "Let his children be fatherless, and his wife a widow."
    For years, this passage of scripture has circulated among religious-right extremists who advocate "imprecatory prayer" - asking God to kill President Obama.
    Senator Perdue's staff is now backpedaling, claiming that isn't what he meant, but so far he's refusing to apologize for his hateful misuse of the Bible.

    Well, Obama's still here. So it's not working.

    Has it occurred to them that either their god does not exist, or that prayer to him is a futile venture?

    Shouldn't he be praying for the lord to smite Hillary? I mean Obama is on his way out anyway.
