    I am not worried about Jamie Foxx's equating Obama to Jesus...because Janie is an uneducated, ignorant man but, I am very disturbed by the reaction of the audience - or should I be? Would they be the people to follow, listen to, respect for their well grounded opinions? - HARDLY!
    As it says in the Holy Bible, the gates of hell will not prevail but, we need to be vigilant.The U.S.A. needs to wake up and wake up soon lest they end up like Rome did.
    God save us from fools.

    I am completely at peace about this. We have a dividing line here. You are either a Christian and follower of Christ, or you are not. They will have to answer for all of this one day.

    Obama isn't the messiah - he is an exceptionally deluded naughty boy!

    We believe in God, the Father, the Almighty,
    maker of heaven and earth,
    and all that is seen and unseen.

    We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ,
    the only Son of God, eternally begotten of the Father,
    God from God, Light from Light,
    true God from true God,
    begotten, not made, one in Being with the Father.
    Through him all things were made.
    For us men and for our salvation
    he came down from heaven:
    by the power of the Holy Spirit
    he was born of the Virgin Mary,
    and became man.
    For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate;
    he suffered, died, and was buried.
    On the third day he rose again
    in fulfillment of the Scriptures;
    he ascended into heaven
    and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
    He will come again in glory
    to judge the living and the dead,
    and His kingdom will have no end.

    We believe in the Holy Spirit,
    the Lord, the giver of life,
    who proceeds from the Father and the Son.
    With the Father and the Son
    he is worshiped and glorified.
    He has spoken through the Prophets.

    We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church.
    We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins.
    We look for the resurrection of the dead,
    and the life of the world to come.

    Amen.

    terrible thing to say about a man that he is our savior, no the reality is that he is our downfall and our first president who wants to be a dictator and with an ego as big as a mountain, a spender, two tongue speaker, and traitor to the American way of life. certainly not a savior if anything a destroyer of America and all our freedoms, Americans will wake up to a nightmare in the four years to come. a horrible nightmare

    Christ is already victorious He,the 2nd person of the Holy TRINITY,the Incarnation of God himself,can not be mocked. Those who mock Christ mock themselves. Actually it is Foxx who should apologize to the President for equating him as a messiah,in the same breath with the Holy God,as he did much to offend both. Jesus saves and is the Messiah. Foxx learned Jesus,to be jeSUS,or jes-US,same as President Obama did as a supporter of abortion,and most of the hollywood crowd,so they do not know Jesus. it takes a love for God to know Jesus and a love in community,with respect for life and each person. No one who embraces a culture of death that includes abortion is anyones messiah. No one who thinks one as such should not be taken seriously,but that is SHOW-BIZ.

    The "Sorcery" of Racial Mesmerization at the cost of Faith, not surprising for it aligns with Biblical Prophecy.

    What is significant to me concerning Foxx's blasphemy concerning Obama being lord and saviour is how these words have opened so many liberals eyes. Essentially, Foxx has thrown out a challenge, drawing a line in the sand, compelling any believer with any reverence for God whatsoever, to distance themselves from this kind of perception that they put Obama before their first love of God. Liberals who consider themselves individuals of faith, who perhaps hadn't thought through how Obama policies about funding open ended abortions and gay marriage and encouraging dependency on entitlements (rather than helping people become leaders, innovators, etc.) has compromised their core religious beliefs. When Foxx called Obama Lord there seems to be a real backing up of "Whoa...hold on there....I didn't mean that when I voted for some of these benefits.." And it is having a very interesting rippling response among all people of faith. In the end we are all accountable for every position we take or don't take, and this is one that most believers understand just can't be dismissed as one stupid person's sick remark.

    Yeah, Jamie Foxx is on the long list of elite entertainers that truly believe "they have overcome" with the 2nd term of Mr. & Mr. Obama. Earlier, I read a comment stating, "this is a simple case of hero worship" , really ? Sounds like IDOL worship , and that's just bad no matter how you slice it . . . ~ OPINION PEACE ~
