Can We Talk About This?

So these T-shirts and similar bumper stickers are making their way around the country, and at first glance you think "how nice, yes let's pray for our president". Until you take a closer look at the words of the quoted Bible verse:
Psalm 109:8: "Let his days be few; let another take his office".
SMH!! But...if you know anything about the Bible you know that you can't just take 1 verse for face value; there's always more to the story. Get a look at the verse following directly after:
Psalm 109:9: "Let his children be fatherless, and his wife a widow".
Really? All this over the color of a person's skin? #HowDreadfulAmerica.
