Posted on 09/02/2012 8:22:10 PM PDT by ATOMIC_PUNK
The Secret Service is looking into a sign posted in Victoria, Texas.
The sign says Pray for Obama, but its the scripture quoted below those words that is raising eyebrows: Psalms 109:8.
Psalms 109:8 reads, Let his days be few, and let another take his office.

But the font is near-Arabic.
Fits don’t it ?
As well it should be.
"Lions and Tigers and Scripture, Oh My!"
No one has complained about the jab though.
Ahhh letem whine those who are gonna !
Wow. These verses have been well-publicized for about 3 years now. I posted them on my facebook page then, so I guess I can expect a knock on the door any day now.
It's a totally quality job that deserves proper recognition.
These signs are great....
like the one at Sioux City Airport (OBAMA welcome to SUX)
What the hell business is it of theirs? There isn't a communicated threat.
Methinks 0bama and his Chicago regime are very thin skinned.
Is that racist? Sorry, but the race card has expired.
So goes the same ways with a Leader in the Throws of losing power he let it go to his head and didn’t lead with a heart It’s almost over for him as a leader and he knows it ! What better way to Threaten someone who everyone thinks is a muslim by quoting the Bible at least he would look at it as a threat and a solid one at that given the scripture ....
You think a poster saying “Obama’s a Fag” might offend?
Big Sis insists.
Ban the Bible?????
That’s what I’d like to know. Are they trying to manufacture a threat where no real threat exists? We all know how they like to operate in crisis mode, gives them freedom to do things they couldn’t normally do. Heck, we all want his days to be numbered. How many days to January 20th?
If you read the whole Psalm, it is the psalm-writer asking God to bring judgment on the wicked. The entire Psalm 109:
“Hold not thy peace, O God of my praise; For the mouth of the wicked and the mouth of the deceitful are opened against me: they have spoken against me with a lying tongue. They compassed me about also with words of hatred; and fought against me without a cause.
In return for my love they act as my accusers: but I give myself unto prayer. And they have rewarded me evil for good, and hatred for my love.
Set thou a wicked man over him: and let Satan stand at his right hand. When he shall be judged, let him be condemned: and let his prayer become sin. Let his days be few; and let another take his office. Let his children be fatherless, and his wife a widow. Let his children be continually vagabonds, and beg: let them seek their bread also out of their desolate places. Let the extortioner catch all that he hath; and let the strangers spoil his labour.
Let there be none to extend mercy unto him: neither let there be any to favour his fatherless children. Let his posterity be cut off; and in the generation following let their name be blotted out. Let the iniquity of his fathers be remembered with the Lord; and let not the sin of his mother be blotted out. Let them be before the Lord continually, that he may cut off the memory of them from the earth. Because that he remembered not to shew mercy, but persecuted the poor and needy man, that he might even slay the broken in heart.
As he loved cursing, so let it come unto him: as he delighted not in blessing, so let it be far from him.
As he clothed himself with cursing like as with his garment, so let it come into his bowels like water, and like oil into his bones. Let it be unto him as the garment which covereth him, and for a girdle wherewith he is girded continually. Let this be the reward of mine adversaries from the Lord, and of them that speak evil against my soul.
But do thou for me, O God the Lord, for thy name’s sake: because thy mercy is good, deliver thou me. For I am poor and needy, and my heart is wounded within me. I am gone like the shadow when it declineth: I am tossed up and down as the locust. My knees are weak through fasting; and my flesh faileth of fatness. I became also a reproach unto them: when they looked upon me they shaked their heads.
Help me, O Lord my God: O save me according to thy mercy:
hat they may know that this is thy hand; that thou, Lord, hast done it. Let them curse, but bless thou: when they arise, let them be ashamed; but let thy servant rejoice.
Let mine adversaries be clothed with shame, and let them cover themselves with their own confusion, as with a mantle.
I will greatly praise the Lord with my mouth; yea, I will praise him among the multitude. For he shall stand at the right hand of the poor, to save him from those that condemn his soul.”
The psalm writer does express his desire that God judge and take the life of this wicked man who was oppressing not only him, but all the weak and defenseless around him. So, I guess you could make an argument that quoting the psalm against Obama could be a “death threat”. But, it’s not a death threat on the part of the psalm writer - he’s asking GOD to do the killing, not himself.
It’s kind of like that line in “Fiddler On the Roof” when the Rabbi is asked if there was a proper blessing for the Czar. His reply was, “Yes, May the Lord bless and keep the Czar - FAR FROM US!”
Liberals have no sense of humor.
There was a physicist interviewed on Coast2CoastAM who runs the MERLIN Project doing scientific forecasting who mentioned that Obama’s numbers run very similarly to MLK’s numbers.
They may not have a sense of humor but they are scared of God weather they believe in him or not inside every human being is a knowing of something greater than us they just don't want there to be !
