Kansas Speaker of the House must have a significant hatred of black people. Within the last month he insulted Michelle Obama in an e-mail forwarded to his Republican colleagues referencing a prayer that many believe calls for the early death of President Obama. He referred to the first lady, Michelle Obama, as Mrs YoMama and compared her to the Grinch. A second e-mail O’Neil forwarded to his colleagues, included the phrase, “Pray for Obama. Psalm 109:8.” Further, a message in the e-mail stated, “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!!!!!!”

Nick Sementelli, of Faith in Public Life stated, “A popular conservative meme after President Obama’s election were bumper stickers issuing a “tongue-in-cheek” call to pray for the President, referencing Psalm 109 in the Bible, which actually is a prayer for the death of a leader.”  Faithful America, an organization dedicated to addressing moral issues,has circulated an online petition calling for the resignation of speaker O’Neal. The Republicans, often refers to itself as the party of social conservative values, is now touting religion as a weapon to remove Barack Obama from office.

Kansas seems to have more than their fair share of derelict Republicans holding office. if you remember, we reported that Kansas legislator Virgil Peck, suggested the immigration problem be solved by shooting illegal immigrants from a helicopter.then of course, there was Connie O’Brien, who mistakenly identified a college student attempting to get a student loan as an illegal immigrant due to the color of her skin.


An excerpt of Psalm 109 is provided below.

Psalm 109 

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.
