    Shucks, I started a thead to offer a little praise to Americans for their president and got deleted! I hate to think what might happen to this thread further "advertising" those "abominable" Obama saintly candles.............:saint: Just think, we had Obama cookies, Obamatails (a takeoff from our famous Beavertails, Obama snow ball (a snowman (Obama) inside a glass ball that snows when you shake it), life size Obama images all along the parade route, and then he sat down to lunch with a twice-born evangelical prime minister who prayed before eating,,,,,,,Lord help us from the attackers..........

    How do I shake my head in here?

    Cheers,

    Jim

    When you use the term "blaspheme" in regards to the President, then you are equating him with a deity since "blaspheme" means "To speak of (God or a sacred entity) in an irreverent, impious manner." Sorry. I never called him "messiah" but I've heard others refer to him as such (supporters of President Obama during the election) and I do think there is a messiah-like following with him, unfortunately. People are looking to him to solve their problems and he just can't do that. Reality will set in soon, unfortunately. Is he satan? No. Is he the antichrist? I don't think so - but he's certainly not going to be a savior.

    Are you quite sure that these candles are not being bought by Obama's followers?

    Ann, you should read more carefully. I say it is blasphemous to God to call the President, or any man, messiah. I have only seen his detractors refer to the President this way, not his supporters. Can you supply evidence otherwise?

    I remember seeing videos of followers of then presidential candidate Obama speak of such. I don't have the strength, honestly, to go searching for it. I'm apparently preparing for a long night with a sick child (my 8 year old is suddenly sneezing and coughing a LOT - I think I'll need the nebulizer tonight - :( )

    I think you just provided the evidence yourself with your candles.

    blaspheme: 1. talk profanely, making use of religious names; talk profanely about; revile (Oxford English dictionary)

    You used he word correctly, mate.

    It doesn't have include God's names..

    You know that assertions will be asked for support. :tongue3:

    I just said a prayer for your child and you. God bless.

    P.S. I did NOT light an Obama candle. :laugh:

    That might be for England (the Oxford Dictionary) - I used the American Heritage Dictionary. So in America, he was wrong. :D

    WingNut Daily is not a credible source of anything except the lunacy of some righties. The second is a blog that I can't tell if it is parody or not. But even if not, there are nut cases all over the place.

    Oh - I know about World Net Daily - but there's a video link in there that is pretty clear.

    Thanks for the prayers for my little guy. I feel so bad when my kids are sick. :(

An irreverent or impious act, attitude, or utterance in regard to something considered inviolable or sacrosanct. [SIZE=-1]ETYMOLOGY:[/SIZE]Middle English blasfemie, from Late Latin blasph[​IMG]mia, from Greek blasph[​IMG]mi[​IMG], from blasph[​IMG]mein, to blaspheme. See blaspheme.

    Here's a little recent events information on this subject:

    Farrakhan on Obama: 'The Messiah is absolutely speaking'


    Farrakhan seemed to believe Obama is absolutely the Messiah. I'm not sure how he reconciles this heresy to the real Messiah. I wonder if he still thinks this way?

    Of course, friends, this is a World Net Daily article so that will get instant discredit by some of you. I couldn't easily find a report by ABC, CBS, or NBC on this. Maybe they didn't consider it important?

    Regardless, the reference "messiah" in lower case and quotations perhaps used by some conservatives indicate they certainly don't consider Obama to be the real Messiah and, instead, show disdain for the use of such a term by Obama's supporters.
