Obama and Psalm 2

A few weeks or days ago I saw a news article about a McCain supporter's home being graffitied. I noticed "Psalm 2" written on the house and thought that was odd. Finally I got around to looking it up:

The Reign of the LORD’s Anointed
Why do the nations rage
and the peoples plot in vain?

The kings of the earth set themselves,
and the rulers take counsel together,
against the LORD and against his Anointed, saying,

"Let us burst their bonds apart
and cast away their cords from us."

He who sits in the heavens laughs;
the Lord holds them in derision.

Then he will speak to them in his wrath,
and terrify them in his fury, saying,

"As for me, I have set my King
on Zion, my holy hill."

I will tell of the decree:The LORD said to me, "You are my Son;
today I have begotten you.

Ask of me, and I will make the nations your heritage,
and the ends of the earth your possession.

You shall break them with a rod of iron
and dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel."

1Now therefore, O kings, be wise;
be warned, O rulers of the earth.

Serve the LORD with fear,
and rejoice with trembling.

Kiss the Son,
lest he be angry, and you perish in the way,
for his wrath is quickly kindled.
Blessed are all who take refuge in him.

I know there are goofballs on both sides of this campaign but really, I am more scared about people invoking the Psalms in support of Obama than of college girls claiming to be McCain supporters cutting themselves for attention.

PS: I don't know why that spacing is so weird.

There is a lot of wierdness out there.. That's for sure. Ever check out New Zealand? Not totally seriously, but we've been thinking about it a little. Having a plan B never hurts, right?

I started a new blog, I don't know why. But the link on my name is new.

Hey if kerri moves than we move! LOL

Good news according to new poll this morning Obamas lead has come down from two digits to only 5 points. God be praised!

This is old, I know, but... there's a Kiwi on a homeschool message board I read and she says... don't come to NZ if you don't want socialism!
