Reverend Wrong

A Phoenix-area pastor has started to draw protesters to his congregation after he delivered a sermon titled, "Why I Hate Barack Obama," and told his parishioners that he prays for President Obama's death.

Pastor Steven Anderson stood by his sermon in an interview with MyFOXPhoenix, which reports that the pastor continues to encourage his parishioners to join him in praying for the president's death.

"I hope that God strikes Barack Obama with brain cancer so he can die like Ted Kennedy and I hope it happens today," he told MyFOXPhoenix on Sunday. He called his message "spiritual warfare" and said he does not condone killing.

Two wrongs don't make a right. However, two Wrights apparently make a wrong. What the hell is this "Reverend" thinking? To pray for someones death? Certainly to put it in the hands of the Almighty eg. "thy will be done" but to pray he gets brain cancer? It is guys like this that give conservatives and Christians a bad name. Seems to be cut from the same cloth as those folks who protest at soldier's funerals. I dislike what the Rev. Wright had to say during the election cycle. I dislike what this guy has to say just as much. Just my opinion.

The rest here.
