What started as an attempt to be "funny" has led to an investigation and suspension without pay for a Florida sheriff's deputy who labeled a passage of Scripture as "the Obama prayer."

Sgt. Matthew Neu of the Manatee County Sheriff's Office had left a Bible behind on a co-worker's desk with a note designating Psalm 109 as "the Obama prayer," according to an internal-affairs investigation reported by the Bradenton Herald.

Psalms 109:8 reads, "May his days be few; may another take his place of leadership."

The co-worker, a sergeant who discovered the note, took offense when she learned the passage was not supportive of the president, fearing instead the prayer constituted a threat against Obama's life.
