Praying for the deaths of innocent children

Pardon the brief hiatus from our usual discussion, but this just has to be seen, or heard rather, to be believed:

“Let us pray. Almighty God, today we pray imprecatory prayers from Psalm 109 against the enemies of religious liberty, including Barry Lynn and Mikey Weinstein, who recently issued a press release attacking me personally. God, do not remain silent, for wicked men surround me and tell lies about me. We bless them, but they curse us. Therefore find them guilty, not me. Let their days be few, and replace them with Godly people. Plunder their fields, and seize their assets. Cut off their descendants, and remember their sins, in Jesus’ name. Amen.”

That’s ex-chaplain Gordon Klingenschmitt, solemnly and piously asking God to please kill Mikey Weinstein and Barry Lynn and their children (if any), and send them all to hell, unforgiven, for the offense of having published a press release critical of Klingenschmitt.

Yes, that’s right. Daring to criticize Klingenschmitt, and voicing opinions he does not agree with, makes them ENEMIES OF RELIGIOUS LIBERTY!!!1!one!

My first thought was that this was an Onion-esque spoof of a self-righteous blowhard, but no, it’s hosted on Klingenschmitt’s own sanctuary of spiritual narcissism, prayinjesusname.org.

Hat tip to Dispatches from the Culture Wars—be sure and scroll down to read the comment from Klingenschmitt’s former supervisor about what it was like working with this guy.

    I wonder if they think no-one notices that they are SAYING one thing while DOING the exact opposite!

    They say, “They(atheists, capital ‘a’) are just God-haters!”, meaning “We hate them!”

    They say they want ‘respect’ when they mean that they want you to capitulate.

    They say, “Our beliefs aren’t ‘magica!’” then explain in ten dollar words how their belief IS magical!

    Mockery and sarcasm are taboo, but only when used against THEM.

    Table-turning and tu quoque(in fact any and every fallacy) are GOOD SOLID argument FOR their arguments.

    I think that it can all be explained in two words, “Confusion technique.”

    They bully each other and expect this tactic to work on everyone.
