The progressives of the world have an unhealthy love affair with President Obama. I mean it is truly frightening.
Jamie Fox called Barack Obama his lord and savior.
College students are painting him as if he had been crucified with a crown of thorns on his head
These acts are insulting, and terrifying.
First of all, I and many others around the world believe that Jesus Christ is our lord and savior, calling Barack Obama the savior is blasphemous. In the Christian Faith we believe that Jesus Christ the son of God died on the cross to wipe out our sins. He saved us from eternal damnation. In the Christian Faith we believe that Jesus sits at the right hand of God and is the path to heaven. So I have to ask, does Mr. Fox really think that President Obama is his lord? Is he beholden to him? Does Mr. Fox really believe that President Obama is some sort of savior, what is he saving him from? Eternal damnation, or individual liberty. Well I could see how he could make the last connection, after all in the world of progressive thought those are one in the same.
Then there is that college student who painted President Obama as if he were crucified with a crown of thorns. Now the artist a man by the name of Michael D’Antuono has spoken about his painting. He stated to Fox News that “The crucifixion of the president was meant metaphorically…My intent was not to compare him to Jesus,“. He also stated he was happy that he lived in a country where we can express ourselves. This is of course true, and I do agree with him, do not get me wrong I do not think that both Mr. D’Antuono and Mr. Fox should not be allowed to express themselves. When the artist blasted conservatives for “trying to promote the idea that liberals believe the president to literally be our savior” I had to pause. Now I saw this story about the painting, then I saw the story about Jamie Fox, I had to have a little laugh, I guess Mr. D’Antuono did not get the memo (that is a joke all you progressive zealots calm down)
Mr. D’Antuono’s painting made me think, must mean its good art, it made me think about the subject matter. While he might now be insinuating that President Obama is his lord and savior, his art carries meaning. There is symbolism in everything that happens in this world. The scene of the crucifixion is very important to Christians. It was the moment of our salvation, a moment of great sacrifice. So of course Christians are going to be angry that this man used it to make some political metaphor. What I find interesting though is that Mr. D’Antuono painted this picture, which was sure to enrage the Christian population and then stated that he is allowed to under his first amendment rights and the old media remained silent. If I were to draw a stick figure of the prophet Mohammad and posted it on the internet, the old media would be calling for my head on a desk. Why did President Obama not come out and denounce this disgusting and hanis painting clearly designed to degrade a great religion. Why does someone insulting Christians not garner the same response as someone insulting Muslims? Both are within the rights of Americans, yet one is ignored by the media, and one is attacked by the media, why? I guess you only have to worry about others so long as they are a minority and you are able to exploit them.
To top off the Obama-mania insanity, I even saw where a College Marching bands spelled his name out on the field. The Southern University Jaguars did an entire half time show in his honor. Do they do this for every President, would they have done a Mitt Romney half time show had he won?
It scares me that there are people out there that are this obsessed with President Obama. They are blind to the world around them, and have bought into the words of a politician. This type of blind devotion is what leads to servitude. If you are not willing to question the acts of your leaders, regardless of party, you are willing to allow them to walk all over you. These people remind me of stories you hear out of the old soviet union or red China. They replaced religion with devotion to their leader. Now I am not saying that this is part of some massive progressive conspiracy or that President Obama is mind control these people to say these things. What I am saying is that I cannot believe that these people are so willing to believe the words of a man who has a record of breaking his promises.
