Family Research Council Encourages Members to Pray Against #OccupyWallStreet
Never afraid of employing some good old fear mongering to stir up their members, the Family Research Council has aimed their smears at the #occupy movement. In its weekly email of prayer targets last week, FRC instructed its prayer team members to pray:
May God prevent these radical organizers from stirring revolution and distracting voters from the elections and keeping watch on our elected leaders.
Because frustration about our broken economic system is a distraction this election cycle?
Here’s one of the Bible verses FRC lists to accompany the prayer:
4 Woe to the sinful nation,
a people whose guilt is great,
a brood of evildoers,
children given to corruption!
They have forsaken the LORD;
they have spurned the Holy One of Israel
and turned their backs on him.
5 Why should you be beaten anymore?
Why do you persist in rebellion?
Your whole head is injured,
your whole heart afflicted.
6 From the sole of your foot to the top of your head
there is no soundness–
only wounds and welts
and open sores,
not cleansed or bandaged
or soothed with olive oil.
Keep it classy, FRC.
