    I would compare him more to Noah and his ark. Can you imagine the community organization that went on in building that mother?

    Whoa!

    All I know is that Jesus would have thrown Jeremiah Wright out of the temple!

    Doing wonders to dispel that messianic complex he's perceived to have; seems to be proving my point from a different thread that the cult of personality is used to promote the statist agenda.

    The best part of this is not Obama being compared to Jesus, but Palin being referred to a Pontius Pilate!

    I mean, really!?

    The teacher who taught you to spell should be fired IMMEDIATELY! ;)

    Aren't you over reacting just a teensy weensy bit? He said he's a community organizer LIKE Jesus. He didn't say he WAS Jesus.

    Its still pretty outrageous for anyone to compare themself to a man that two thirds of the American population recognize as the Christ and God incarnate and not expect backlash and then to not so subtly hint that Pilot's shoes could be fitted by Palin pretty seamlessly.

    Then they should not vote for him after all remember the seperation of church and state. :laugh2:

    I'm not sure who the bigger joke is Obama or the idiots who make these type of comments.

    Maybe I'll explain it a little more carefully. Apparently, alot of people think Jesus Christ was a good "community organizer". It appears his message appealed to a decent sized crowd. Perhaps, just perhaps, modern day organizers are using him as a role model. As for the Palin anaogy to Pilot, you're reaching a bit there. It was an election-time prod, nothng more. Perhaps moving on to something substantial, like dialogue on the deficit, which neither pary seems interested to tackle, might be in order.

    And I'm politely telling you that even an analogy that alludes to Christ's community service being like that of Obama's is seen as suspiciously haughty and sacreligious to a great portion of the country, regardless of intent.

    Not as outrageous as claiming to be in direct daily communication with someone who died a few thousand years ago.

    "Like" is a comparison word in similes.

    "Was" is not a comparison.

    People object to the comparison.

    Wow your prejudices shine through o' enlightened one.
    I think we finally have pegged you down as a bigot against religion and Christianity in general thus your hostility in rational conversation about what historical role Christian theology played in shaping the modern west.

    And in case you didn't know, that statement is based on your presupposition that it is useless to pray, a presupposition is a slate of beliefs or assumptions you bring into a conversation or study that determines the lens you choose to analyze and examine something.

    You my little self proclaimed post modern beacon of "tolerance" are in actuality a bigot.

    That question borders on heresy. The Nicene Creed says that they are one and the same.

    I simply said that it's not as absurd as claiming to be in direct communication with dead people. I could have been talking about Plato for all you know. Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar. :D

    I stand by my contention, unless you think we should entrust the nation to someone like this...
