Imprecatory Prayer

In yesterday’s San Francisco Chronicle, there was an article about a Southern Baptist preacher in L.A. that has called on his congregation to engage in “imprecatory prayer”–that is, to call a curse upon the enemies of God, the leaders of a group called “Americans United for Separation of Church and State” because they asked the I.R.S. to look into his activities of endorsing a particular political candidate for president, the former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee. The article reports, “Churches, as tax-exempt, are prohibited from from campaigning for candidates.”

Crazy stuff.
