Is Obama the Messiah? (The One and Only)

Bhk won't shut up with this line, so I figure it's time to determine once and for all if anyone out there actually buys it.

Please compare and contrast Senator Obama with Jesus Christ.

Once we have a list, wendersfan can make a chart and we will then be able to determine the odds of it being true.

This should be a poll.

Messiah? No. Prophet? Sure, why not.

And by similar proof,

Palin = Governor = Pontius Pilate = Responsible for the death of Jesus

No. He's an empty suit/puppet that's good at regurgitating the socialist/marxist philosophy that's been poured into his head by his radical mentors like Alinsky. And he's good at reading off of a teleprompter. But, his devotees(like Donna Brazile and Susan Saranwrap) keep comparing him to Jesus so for them he is.

I guess we need these here. Even McCain is not denying that Obama could be the Messiah. Messiah's don't have to be President, after all.

No and constantly referring to him as the Messiah (or anyone with some kind of nickname) just makes you look dumb

This was actually brought up in a recent interview on MSNBC:

Keith Olbermann: Senator Obama, are you in fact "The Messiah"?
Barack Obama: (laughs) No, Keith. I'm not the Messiah.
KO: (raises eyebrow) Only the true Messiah denies his divinity!
BO: (sighs) Okay then, I am the Messiah.
KO: THE MESSIAH! THE MESSIAH!

I know he's not The Messiah. I haven't heard The Seventh Trump.

Maybe it will be sounded on November 4th.

But again, maybe not.

And childish. Using the term occasionally to make a point or as a joke wouldn't be so bad, but when someone uses it continuously it merely detracts from what might otherwise be a cogent post.

I don't think we have to worry about that here.

I do believe that some of the support he has received borders on religious zeal - even on this forum.

Outside of bhk and Limbaugh, I haven't heard anyone else use the expression. I agree with Venusian.

Are you critical of Obama on anything?

If so, please enlighten the forum.

JasonF, a staunch of Obama, is critical of his energy policy. He's said it it a number of times.

Surely you can find something in which you disagree with Obama on.

I can agree with this. But it's been paled by the reception of Sarah Palin, the She-siah.
