Prayer... to OBAMA?

Breitbart TV recently turned up this unbelievable December 2008 clip from The Gamaliel Foundation, the community organizing group that helped sponsor Barak Obama's initial work in Chicago. If THIS doesn't cause you to cry out to our Lord Jesus for our nation, I'm not sure anything else will.

Obama worship (again)

“Barack Hussein Obama
“Red and yellow, black and white
“All are equal in his sight …”

This is part of a song that children in a New Jersey school were taught--a song of praise to President Obama (I wonder, are they allowed to sing Christmas songs?). Watch the video and pray to the TRUE God for our children. Never has this nation been taught to idolize any leader in such a way (and as Glenn Beck asked on his show, is the word “his” in the third line capitalized or not? We are all equal in WHOSE sight?).

Someone please explain to me what the difference is between this, and having children sing to some despot in North Korea or Cuba, or some other cult leader. On a side note: I've wondered about whether Matthew 25 Network was an actual religious group or mere political stooges. Now it's settled: they're religious--and we know who they REALLY worship. Why else would they not stand against such anti-Christian idolatry?

Cult of personality?

This video was recently shown at an elementary school assembly in Utah, outraging parents. Take a good long look at it: never in our history have Americans been urged by our government to promote a specific leader in such a cultic manner. With the health nationalization taking a dive (although that battle is not yet over), the arts community--at the urging of the White House and its newly acquired propaganda arm, the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA)--is coming to the Great Leader's rescue.

Imagine the outcry it George W. Bush ad urged the arts community to do this: an ad that features his voice over his presidential campaign art (the famous drawing that adored one too many t-shirts), and ends with one of the glittering participants pledging, "I pledge to be of service to Barack Obama," after peppering the video with crude and leftist hotbutton comments.

It's all too appropriate here to quote the German theologian and martry Dietrich Bonhoeffer, from a 1933 radio address (that was mysteriously cut off near the end): "Should the leader allow himself to succumb to the wishes of those he leads, who will always seek to turn him into an idol, then the image of the leader will become the image of the misleader. This is the leader who makes an idol of himself and his office, and thus mocks God."
