Liberal filmmaker/activist Michael Moore offered up a prayer for the overthrow of President Donald Trump on Sunday.

Responding to news of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) raids rounding up illegal aliens who have lost their court battles to stay in the U.S. and, thus, have been ruled deportable, Moore took to Facebook to call down the wrath of God on Trump.

Because of Trump’s efforts to enforce U.S. immigration law, Moore posts “A Prayer for the Overthrow of the Wicked” (Psalm 10), from the Bible’s “Book of Psalms”):

There’s really no better day than the Christian Sunday to round up the poor and working poor, those without the white skin, and remove them from our midst.

For this act of yours, Mr. Trump, on God’s Day, I offer you from the Book of Psalms, Psalm 10, “A Prayer for the Overthrow of the Wicked”:

...In his arrogance the wicked man hunts down the weak, who are caught in the schemes he devises.

He boasts about the cravings of his heart; he blesses the greedy and reviles the Lord.

In his pride the wicked man does not seek him; in all his thoughts there is no room for God.

His ways are always prosperous; your laws, God, are rejected by him; he sneers at all his enemies.

He says to himself, "Nothing will ever shake me." He swears, "No one will ever do me harm."

His mouth is full of lies and threats; trouble and evil are under his tongue.

He lies in wait near the villages; from ambush he murders the innocent. His eyes watch in secret for his victims.

Like a lion in cover he lies in wait. He lies in wait to catch the helpless; he catches the helpless and drags them off in his net.

His victims are crushed, they collapse; they fall under his strength.

He says to himself, "God will never notice; he covers his face and never sees."

Arise, Lord! Lift up your hand, O God. Do not forget the helpless.

Why does the wicked man revile God? Why does he say to himself, "He won't call me to account"?

But you, God, see the trouble of the afflicted; you consider their grief and take it in hand. The victims commit themselves to you; you are the helper of the fatherless.

Break the arm of the wicked man; call the evildoer to account for his wickedness that would not otherwise be found out...

You, Lord, hear the desire of the afflicted; you encourage them, and you listen to their cry,

Defending the fatherless and the oppressed, so that mere earthly mortals will never again strike terror.

On Monday, another liberal activist/filmmaker, Rob Reiner, declared that Americans need to fight Pres. Trump in order to "overcome Original Sin."
