Boy Praying To Obama Sparks Outrage

There's a viral video out there of a young boy praying TO Barack Obama that has garnered much criticism. I don't fault the lad, I blame his stupid mother who decided to upload the video to YouTube, consequently exposing him to anger and ridicule. 

The boy Stephen and mother Regina Young call it "Prayer For President Barack Obama", but it's more like a prayer To Obama. Regina should have instructed her cute, eager young son that it's okay to pray for someone you admire, but not pray to him.

As you can see in the video, (which still happens to be on YouTube in spite of all the negative comments and the 2,507 'dislikes' versus the 85 'likes'), the young boy bows his head, closes his eyes, and then launches into this:

"Barack Obama, thank you for doing everything and all the kind stuff. Thank you for all the stuff that you helped us with. Thank you for taking the courage and responsibility for everything you've done for us. God has given you a special power and you are going to handle it just fine. You are good, Barack Obama and you are great and when you get older, you will be able to do great things. Love, Stephen,"
Stephen then lifts his arms and shouts "Barack Obama!"

In spite of the fact that many have endowed Obama with Messiah-like qualities- including actor Jamie Foxx who called Obama "Our Lord and Savior"- Barack is not God.
