Calling all godly Americans: "pray that Barack Hussein Obama fails"

So the faux Christian set is going to pray. Not for world peace, not for a cure for AIDS, not for the end of hunger, not for health care coverage for those who cannot afford it, not for the end of genocide or war crimes or torture, but for our incoming President, Barack Obama, to fail.

My God, what horrible excuses for human beings these people are. True Christians everywhere should be horrified:

Many a coward has been bolstered in his conviction against challenging tyranny by not reading too deeply into the Scriptures. Yet, nowhere does the Bible ever suggest evil rulers are to be obeyed. When the rule of men conflicts with the commands of God, the Bible leaves no doubt about where we should stand. That's why I do not hesitate today in calling on godly Americans to pray that Barack Hussein Obama fail in his efforts to change our country from one anchored on self-governance and constitutional republicanism to one based on the raw and unlimited power of the central state. It would be folly to pray for his success in such an evil campaign. I want Obama to fail because his agenda is 100 percent at odds with God's. Pretending it is not simply makes a mockery of God's straightforward Commandments.

Evil. Ugly. Hateful. These people are monsters. Share

Bad apologetics for a bad idea. Bad all around.

Here we have a man who talks about the Bible being clear and straightforward, except for that one Romans passage which he admits says to do the exact opposite of what he's proposing when read "at face value." The problem is, he never explains why that particular passage shouldn't be read at face value, nor does he explain how it should be interpreted.

He then goes on to cite two verses that he claims to support his position. But note that neither verse (nor the passages they're found in) explicitly say to pray against leadership or ask for their failure. Indeed, in the verse from the gospel, Jesus simply instructs his disciples to "leave them alone." (Incidentally, the "them" in that passage are the Pharisees -- religious leaders.) The passage from Isaiah talks about how God is rising up against Israel because they have failed to follow him. But again, nowhere in the passage does God call for anyone to pray for his coming wrath.

One begins to wonder what secret decoder ring Farah is using to get his supposedly straight-forward and clear instructions. Because he certainly hasn't done a good job of proving his claims.
