Teachers Union Death Threat to NJ Governor?

The Teacher’s Union in New Jersey apparently prayed for the death of Governor Chris Christie based on a memo released this week. They claim it was a joke. Not sure that God intervenes in stuff like this, but maybe they should just stick to praying for better union leadership…
