There is a Facebook group called something like “Ban from Facebook the Group Praying for the Death of Barak Obama,” or something equally catchy. Most of my friends have joined. I have not.
I couldn’t even find a Facebook group dedicated to earnest prayer for the untimely demise of our President. I found several groups with a couple of hundred members who were hoping Obama would die, but no one praying for it to happen.
This may seem to be splitting hairs, but it’s not. Since I don’t believe in God, a bunch of loons sitting around praying for the President to die seems to me a gigantic waste of time, but certainly not worth getting hot and bothered over.
Even if I did believe in God, I still wouldn’t get ants in my pants over this one. Because, hey, if there is a God, I am sure as shootin’ hoping Hesheit is not in the business of knocking off Presidents just because someone started a Facebook group. That would fly in the face of that whole Benevolence thing.
Free speech is free speech, and freedom of religion is freedom of religion. We don’t get to pick and choose. If these people want to spend all their spare time praying for the President to die, that’s their business.
At least it keeps them from actually doing anything dangerous.
