I am not saying some do not want him dead, I would guess many do.
I would also put money on the fact that many of those call themselves Christians (if I were a betting man). But calling oneself by a name does not
make it true.
See I could call myself a Jew or even Islamist, but that would be a lie. Even if I call myself by a name (Christian) does not mean that I will always
follow the rules set forth for me to be or walk the path of Christianity. I see many Christians (including myself) that sin often, as sin is in our
Perhaps the nut job really is a Christian but are weakened enough in their walk due to mental instability that they do want him dead and would try to
make it so. Should we ban any forms of speech written or spoken that might lead someone to do something because they read into it intent that is not
there? We might as well shut down most all forms of media and completely turn it all over to the government in that case.
I am not saying some might not take this as a sign, but those who actually put this out I doubt very seriously intended it to be taken that way. I
guarantee that no one in my church is praying for Obama to be killed or even hurt. I do know that all have prayed that he be enlightened in his
leadership and follow God’s will. Many have prayed that he change his views or thoughts and ideas, not that God change them but that Obama himself
would. In fact I don’t know anyone that wants him killed that I consider a Christian. I do know some who say they believe in God (the Christian one)
but follow none of the Christian rules set before them and live a completely secular life, that do want bad things to happen to Obama.
My point is still that anyone can read what they chose from anything out there. Regardless of what someone “might or might not” read in something
we cannot risk losing our right to freedom of speech. I am a Christian first but that does not mean that I do not believe in letting people speak
their mind, God never took away the choice to sin he left it in our hands. We are either going to do bad or we are going to do good. We are free to
chose which ever path we want, the only problem comes when our life ends.
