Florida Man Angers His Church By Asking Them to Pray for Soul of Osama Bin Laden (Video)

Even Jesus Hates YouBrian Hamacher reports for NBC Miami:

The South Florida man whose prayer for Osama bin Laden caused a holy mess at mass this past Sunday is speaking out to defend the bizarre benediction.

Henry Borga paid $10 to put bin Laden’s name on the prayer list at Holy Name of Jesus Catholic Church in West Palm Beach over the weekend, according to WPTV. The name appeared with four others under the mass intentions section in the church’s pamphlet, with a cross next to bin Laden’s name.

While putting the name on the list has caused quite a hubbub, Borga, who said he also prayed for the victims of 9/11, said it was about mercy. “He was a very bad man but he deserved to be punished in life, not by losing his life,” Borga said. “He needs forgiveness and compassion from God.”

       There are quite a few out there, but most of them are quiet about it. It’s almost a requirement, really, since the stereotypical self-righteous shtick is pretty much antithetical to being an actual Christian.

      I find it a bit troubling, however, that he apparently needed to pay $10 for a name to be placed on the prayer list. Partly because that doesn’t sound like something that should be subject to commerce, and partly because the entire concept of a prayer list is somewhat silly.

       You know, I keep finding myself muttering that, lately. I suspect there are more Real Christians out there than crazies, and I am beginning to wonder why it is that they do not speak up. I think if I subscribed to that religion I would not be able to keep my mouth shut seeing it completely bastardized by immature, hateful, and noisy people. I’d wanna speak up.

        If you’re a true Christian, you won’t have to defend your faith, nor preach it to anybody who doesn’t want it.  Also, a true Christian would not judge another person like that to bring themselves up.  I don’t blame them for being quiet.  I would too.

    Out of curiosity, how do most Christians manage to overlook “love thine enemy” ?

    • quartz99

       The same way they miss “Judge not lest ye be judged yourselves.”

    You people need to understand–prayers are provisioned on the same basis as bank loans these days. You only get one if you don’t need it.

    Judge not lest thy be judged.

    Judgement is reserved for the Lord alone.

    Sounds like this man was being pious and asked his God to forgive his enemy.
