    Thomas is obviously not alone given some of the posts on this Forum.

    Its just goes to show you that NBC & Newsweek really love Obama & are not afraid to show it. The New York Times also seems to be having a slobbering love affair with Obama too.

    if the obama supporters don't approve of this, where are they, they aren't speaking out here against not just nameing obama messiah, but now God.

    I'm looking at this as a positive move... just think of how the MSM treats the real God... maybe they'll start treating the President with the same sort of contempt. (tongue in cheek, but only partially)

    "I mean in a way Obama’s standing above the country, above – above the world, he’s sort of God." - Evan Thomas, Newsweek

    That is one of the most ignorant, stupid...just plain dumb...statements I have ever read.

    Alright, forget the location of his birth. If he's a god, any actions of his as president are respecting an establishment of religion. It is unconstitutional for him to be ye prez.

    It's quite ironic that this deification comes from the secular progressives in this country. They don't believe in God, but "In Obama They Trust."

    Obama won't have presidential library. He'll have a presidential temple.

    The liberals never make this claim. Only the radical conservatives make this claim.

    Is Evan Thomas a "radical conservative?"

    I don't know who Evan Thomas is actually. I'm making that statement based on who makes the statement on this board and where I hear it in my own experience. Conservatives are saying that liberals Obama as their god. That's simply not true. If YOU HAVE to call Obama a god then I suppose that's in relationship to his predecessor who was much closer to the other end of the theological spectrum.

    As you are obviously saying GWB was close to Satan... do you really think Obama, who for 20 years willingly listened to a pastor spouting "GOD D___ AMERICA!!" is divine by comparison? If you do, then as Paul said of the judaizers in his epistle to the Galatians-- go castrate yourself.

    Wow! I believe you have set a new low for unchristian insulting here. That's a pretty evil thing to say to a brother in Christ.

    JustChristian, if you are going to pretend to be someone else then you will have to forego the off topic Bush bashing. It's a dead give away.

    Point of order: Did the "off topic Bush bash counter" reset when JustChristian changed his name to Freedom?

    Can I get an official ruling on this?

    It would hardly seem fair for JustChristian to loose his high score just because he got banned and had to assume a new identity to continue his game.
