Obama’s followers have long likened him to god. If you doubt that, just check out “Is Barack Obama the Messiah?” for example after example of Obama’s acolytes implicitly or explicitly referring to him as a messiah or God.
We’ve also discussed here whether Obama thinks of himself as a God. Two pieces of evidence pop into my mind, the first of which is his speech when he became the official Democrat presidential nominee in 2008:
I am absolutely certain that generations from now, we will be able to look back and tell our children that this was the moment when we began to provide care for the sick and good jobs to the jobless; this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal; this was the moment when we ended a war and secured our nation and restored our image as the last, best hope on Earth.
That’s not politics; that’s faith.
The second piece of evidence is a statement Obama made indicating that, in his own mind, he is a God because he gets to define right and wrong. Thus, he has defined sin as “being out of alignment with my values.” There is no room for God-given morality or even societal morality in Obama’s world. He is the God.
What we also know about Obama is that he’d always rather talk than act. To him, talk is action. His word is God-like. Obama may not be much of a Christian, but he seems to have an innate understanding of John 1:1: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”
It’s in this context, the one in which Obama thinks of himself as a Messiah whose words are God-like, that you’ll enjoy this picture that Sadie sent me, with the heading “Obama, saving the World with a Hashtag Blitzkrieg.”
