NJ Teacher’s Union head prays for Gov Christie’s death. (then apologizes)

Honestly…a prayer..in an email sent to 17,000 teach union members. This is just sick. From New Jersey’s WCBS tv ( and making its wild way across the web)

The e-mail was sent by Bergen County Education Association president Joseph Coppola. Its started off “”Dear Lord this year you’ve taken away from me my favorite ….” and goes on to name a number of famous people. Coppola ends the prayer saying “I just wanted to let you know that Chris Christie is my favorite governor.”

Coppola said it was “intended as a joke”.


So why the prayer to have God take the good Governor? He’s asking the teachers to pay some more of their health care and give up a raise.
