a band plays “Obama-alujah” and thousands stand in the chill night ready to be rapturous.
Well for one thing I would really like an Obama rapture just as long as it occurs before election day and his true believers are taken up from earth. Though instead of "Left" Behind I guess it would be the right that would be left behind.
I think the most interesting thing about the Obama messiah meme is that so far it seems none of the MSM has asked Obama about his reaction to people speaking a about him in messianic terms and of course there is all the Obama iconography that has appeared and is associated with his campaign. He says he is a Christian and surely is aware of the context in which he is being described. It certainly seems to me that a Christian would be quite embarrassed about anybody speaking of them in messianic terms and would request that it would be stopped. Obama-alujah is pretty over the top and soon they will be throwing palm leaves in his path. Surely St. John the Baptist was embarrassed about this confusion in his own time in people thinking he was the Messiah and he quickly put them straight. Though unlike St. John the Baptist I guess his motto is "I must increase."
