    One of the hottest selling items at the Democratic National Convention is a 2013 calendar titled "Keep the Dream" that features 16 flattering photos of the First Family and their dogs. In honor of the President's birth month, a picture of Obama's birth certificate was used for August. The caption read "Heaven Sent" and proceeded to quote John 3:16 underneath, as if he were the actual Messiah.

    Blasphemy. Get ready for the Abomnination of Abominations of the AC.

    We note that this year there is not one, no not one, mention of God in the Democratic Platform. Just as well, really, since they are Godless murderers of the unborn.

    Well, God says He will have no other gods before Him.

    Well, he may not be the AC (???), BUT, I peg him for the "John the Baptist" of the AC!

    More panties in a wad over nothing. This was not an official White House nor Democratic Party calendar, but one from a local vendor in Charlotte.

    Exactly. The Dem. party certainly approved of it.

    You cannot hold Obama or the Democrats responsible for the act of a single individual acting on his own.

    uh sure that is why I have already had one pastor friend tell me that he was approached via twitter to buy one of those very calenders. We can all be sure that everyone is in support of this unless they are willing to publically condemn it. If Obama and the Dems do not nationally condemn it they are in support of it. Period.

    Somebody gave permission to use those photos on the calendar - unless they are in public domain, which I doubt.

    They are probably in the public domain. The White House releases photos to the press pool that anyone can use. As to the birth certificate, that is a 50 year old government document not covered by copyright laws.

    The calendars are being sold at the DNC. I sure hope that Secret Service security and/or the DNC has a vetting process for every vendor before they can set up shop inside/outside the auditorium.

    They are not being sold at the DNC by anything I have seen. They are being sold by the creator of them, who is apparently a street vendor outside any official DNC venue.

    If the POTUS spent any time worrying over distancing himself from every private citizens acts, he'd get nothing done. Just typical grasping at straws from the Obama hater machine.

    Uh huh...

    Still it is a bit creepy is it not that some Obama supporters think enough like this to print calendars suggesting that Obama is god-like...

    And even more creepy that so many supporters would buy it?

    From the OP:

The caption read "Heaven Sent" and proceeded to quote John 3:16 underneath, as if he were the actual Messiah.

    An item that places Obama on par with Jesus and is one of the hottest selling item at the DNC is not grasping at straws. It is indicative of the faith that the Dems put in this President.

    And I maintain this "source" confuses the actual convention with being sold anywhere in Mecklenburg County, to pump up his failed point.
