At the Soul train Awards on Sunday in Las Vegas the man actually said:
"It's like church over here. It's like church in here. First of all, give an honor to God and our lord and savior Barack Obama. Barack Obama."
"Our Lord and Savior"? Wow. He's lucky we live in a country where people are free to say stupid things, and blasphemy isn't met with a death sentence.
Interesting though, if you look closely, there wasn't as much enthusiasm on the part of the audience as one might expect, then again it was a pretty stupid thing to say.
Yes, I know he was probably joking, but still.... dumb. However, I'm sure there are plenty who do look at Obama as a Lord and Savior, and Santa Claus, to boot. And Obama's attitude, in many ways, fosters that adoration.
