Got an email about this today and I just had to throw it up:

Source Article:

Andrew Greiner NBC Chicago Article

The article is talking about this T-Shirt:

Psalm 109:8 reads (multiple translations):

New International Version (©1984)

May his days be few; may another take his place of leadership.

New Living Translation (©2007)

Let his years be few; let someone else take his position.

New American Standard Bible (©1995)

Let his days be few; Let another take his office.

GOD’S WORD® Translation (©1995)

Let his days be few [in number]. Let someone else take his position.

King James Bible

Let his days be few; and let another take his office.

American King James Version

Let his days be few; and let another take his office.

American Standard Version

Let his days be few; And let another take his office.

Bible in Basic English

Let his life be short; let another take his position of authority.

Douay-Rheims Bible

May his days be few: and his bishopric let another take.

Darby Bible Translation

Let his days be few, let another take his office;

English Revised Version

Let his days be few; and let another take his office.

Webster’s Bible Translation

Let his days be few; and let another take his office.

World English Bible

Let his days be few. Let another take his office.

Young’s Literal Translation

His days are few, his oversight another taketh

I think you can see why some biblically ignorant Obama fans may be duped into buying/wearing this hateful shirt. In my humble opinion, The originator of this shirt is calling for the assassination of a sitting president of the United States! Psalm 109:9 just piles on, condemning the wife to widowhood and the children to orphanhood. You are now informed. So don’t buy this T-Shirt! WOW, some things just never change!
