Well Reverend, in that case, why don’t you step right up and lead the congregation in praying for the Kenyan Usurper, ok?

I’m sure you won’t be at a loss for words.

I do...and ALL true Christians know they are to pray for their leaders. You really think Obama is as bad as Nero? That's who was in power when Paul wrote to the Romans...and to Titus...and when Peter wrote to the 12 tribes of the dispersion. Yet here are their commands via the Holy Spirit (you really think you have it worse?)

Romans 13:2 Therefore whoever resists the authorities resists what God has appointed, and those who resist will incur judgment.

Titus 3:1 Remind them to be submissive to rulers and authorities, to be obedient, to be ready for every good work,

1Ti 2:1, 2 First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way.

So...you suggested to pray...sarcastically...yet the scripture is very specific that this is what Christians should do. I think Hebrews 5: 11-14 fits this situation very well...for this is a very simple concept. It's called: Read the Bible...and do what it says. Not Read the Bible...pick and choose...then attack those who decide to follow all of scripture.
