INSANE - Kansas GOP leader prays for death of the President of the United States

This GOP Senator Should be Charged with Treason. He used religion to overstep all bounds.
This Kansas Senator emailed fellow Republicans to pray for the President's death. THIS IS TREASON. 
This man should be arrested by the Secret Service and charged with Treason. 
He should lose everything and be jailed for the rest of his life. 
This is a Politician!!!- 
This is a prime example of how Religion is used as a TOOL to warp people. 
People who voted for this wacko should immediately vote to remove him. 
 - We hope this idiot is arrested for Treason. 
 - This is DISPICABLE. 
 - You can find it all over the Internet if you don't believe us. Just search for it.  - Below are some excerpts from 
a variety of articles.

TOPEKA, KANSAS - Politics has always been known to be a "dirty" game. But "praying" for the death of the President of the United States is not only unpatriotic, it is - at the least - unprofessional and inappropriate when it comes of an elected official. Yet that is exactly what the Republican House Speaker from Kansas did.
In an email obtained by sources for Think Progress, Kansas House Speaker Mike O'Neal used Psalm 109 from the Catholic Bible to "pray" for Obama's death.

The Lawrence Journal-World was sent another email that O’Neal had forwarded to House Republicans that referred to President Obama and a Bible verse that says “Let his days be few” and calls for his children to be without a father and his wife to be widowed. Nick Sementelli at Faith in Public Life notes that Psalm 109, which is a prayer for the death of a leader, became a popular conservative meme after Obama’s election.

  Kansas House Speaker Mike O'Neal's email to his GOP colleagues said: 
"Let his days be few; and let another take his office
May his children be fatherless and his wife a widow.
May his children be wandering beggars; may they be driven from their ruined homes.
May a creditor seize all he has; may strangers plunder the fruits of his labor.
May no one extend kindness to him or take pity on his fatherless children."
In addition to the words from Psalm 109, the email added, "At last - I can honestly voice a Biblical prayer for our president! Look it up - it is word for word! Let us all bow our heads and pray. Brothers and Sisters, can I get an AMEN? AMEN!!!!!!"
If anyone else had sent such an email, the Secret Service would have likely treated it as a threat worthy of their attention. However, O'Neal appears to be getting away with it - and that is a crime of it's own. It is also a sad commentary on how perverted and desperate some Obama opponents are, and how little support they truly have for the will of the people through voting.
Obama was elected, not appointed. His opponents need to remember that. If he is re-elected, that too, is the will of the people. If Speaker O'Neal does not agree with how the American electoral process was designed in the Constitution, he is free to move to another country. In either case, praying for the death of a nation's leader is not commonly ignored by any government - except apparently in the United States when it is done by an elected official.
There is no word for such behavior apart from disgraceful.

If you would like to voice your own opinion on Speaker O'Neil's prayer, he can be reached at (785) 296-2302, or by e-mail at mike.oneal@houseks.gov

While O'Neal isn't apologizing, outrage over the content of his email has sparked a petition drive calling for his immediate resignation.
O'Neal's email supporting Psalm 109.8 wasn't the only email that emerged to stir controversy either. Earlier this month, O'Neal apologized for an email, also forwarded to his GOP colleagues, that referred to First Lady Michelle Obama as Mrs. YoMama and compared her to the Grinch.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
