Christians what are your thoughts on the pastor that said he wants Michelle Obama to be a widow?

I was watching CNN when I heard a pastor spewing a lot of hate from the pulpit. I couldn't believe it. Our priest would never talk like that.

When you hear other Christians talk this way what do you do or say?

Do any Christians agree with this man?

Would you pastor/priest every say they want someone dead?

I was trying to find a link to this story but with Michael Jackson and Ted Kennedy there is a lot of news today. If you can find the link please post it.

  • We pray every Sunday for the leaders of our country as a congregation, even Obama and we don't agree with his stance on several issues. Our Priest would NEVER say anything like that, no pastor or priest ever should as they are in a position of "role model" or what have you and that can only lead to very, very bad things. Being a person of God those words should never come out of a Christian's mouth in regards to anybody at all.

  • I heard it on CNN, the Audi. It is horrible. On CNN there were people saying they are afraid someone in his congregation will think this is a call to kill the president. Also, I think I heard this is the guy who had an assault riffle at a protest not too long ago.

    I am appalled at this man's actions and he does not represent Christianity.

  • I exercise my God-given gift of Mercy when I feel the Holy Spirit urging me to do so. All Christians are given different spiritual gifts, not to be at odds with each other but to work together as the Body of Christ to further his kingdom (as found in 1 Corinthians 12). If a Pastor feels that Obama is not leading the country in the right path, he can indeed say so. If a Pastor is preaching, using his own personal disgust for a situation and sharing his words in a way that is not honoring to God, it is up to the members of the body who are filled with mercy to remind him to be kind, those who are gifted with wisdom to give him counsel on better approach and those who are gifted with exhortation to encourage him.
