Toxic Prayer


In this article from Salon (day pass required), last week's "Confronting the Judicial War on Faith" conference was more than a bunch of theocon dominionist Christians gathering together grumbling about judges. At the end was a prayer which, upon my reading it, made my hair stand on end:

As Gibbs finished speaking, Scarborough invited the audience to get on their knees. All over the room, people dropped to the floor, heads bowed. From somewhere in the audience, a preacher started up:

"Father, we echo the words of the apostle Paul, because we know Judge Greer claims to be a Christian. So as the Apostle Paul said in First Corinthians 5, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, when you are gathered together, with the power of our Lord Jesus Christ, deliver such a one to Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that his spirit may be saved in the day of our Lord Jesus."

It sounded like a prayer for death.

It actually is a prayer for death, or total destruction. It sounded very familiar, and I realized that it was the same prayer that was used on me by my hateful Christian colleagues in my final assignment in the USAF. They would gather together every morning and say a similar prayer- praying for my destruction so that I may be 'saved'.

A friend of mine thought that it was very interesting that these people would pretty much enlist Satan's aid in destroying their enemies. Makes me wonder who they're really working for. Thing is- the Law of Return works for all- no matter what faith you practice. That which you sow, you will also reap. So, if these people are praying for the 'destruction of the flesh' of their enemies, they may well find themselves suffering from the 'blowback' of their petitions. Were they to petition for love, understanding, and healing, they would get the same back. So, in their own twisted way, these TheoCons are planting the seeds for their own destruction. So may it be.
