There's a new page on Facebook called "Dear Lord, This Year You Took My Favorite Actor, Patrick Swayzie [sic]. You Took My Favorite Actress, Farah [sic] Fawcett. You Took My Favorite Singer. Michael Jackson. I Just Wanted To Let You Know, My Favorite President is Barack Obama. Amen."

Apparently the Lord also took away this person's spelling ability (maybe he's the bloke behind Teabonics), but I digress.

As of Friday evening, the page had over 1 million "likes" and lots of comments.

Several other groups have formed in opposition, such as the Petition to remove facebook group praying for President Obama's death, which already had over 160,000 members on Friday night.

The phrasing of the "Praying for Obama's Death" page is eerily similar to the memo teachers in New Jersey sent out a few weeks ago "praying" for their governor's death: "Dear Lord … this year you have taken away my favorite actor, Patrick Swayze, my favorite actress, Farrah Fawcett , my favorite singer, Michael Jackson,  and my favorite salesman, Billy Mays . … I just wanted to let you know that Chris Christie is my favorite governor."

Facebook says the page doesn't violate its content policies.
