“I Will Follow Him: Obama As My Personal Jesus.”

“When people stop believing in God, they don’t believe in nothing — they believe in anything.” — G.K. Chesterton

“Liberals hate religion because politics is a religion substitute for liberals and they can’t stand the competition.” — Ann Coulter

Conservatives have mocked the cult like atmosphere around the Obama Messiah, but how do you even parody something like this column from Maggie Mertens called — and I kid you not — “I Will Follow Him”: Obama As My Personal Jesus.”

Obama is my homeboy. And I’m not saying that because he’s black – I’m saying that in reference to those Urban Outfitters t-shirts from a couple years ago that said, “Jesus is my homeboy.” Yes, I just said it. Obama is my Jesus.

While you may be overtly religious and find this to be idol-worshipping, or may be overtly politically correct and just know that everything in that sentence could be found offensive, I’m afraid it’s true anyway.

…Then I began to realize I wasn’t the only one trying to buy a WWOD bracelet and spending my weekends scouring CNN.com. The rock star-type love for Obama wasn’t just because he was pretty and in the media. Others too, had seen him as a shining light, heard that mythical voice boom out over the mountaintops; people were wearing the t-shirt because they would rather wear something representing a politician than a pop star. People everywhere, young and old, were caring again. So what’s the problem here?

I’ve officially been saved, and soon, whether they like it or not, the rest of the country will be too. I will follow him, all the way to the White House, and I’ll be standing there in our nation’s capital in January 2009, when Barack Obama is inaugurated as the 44th president of the United States of America. In the name of Obama, Amen.

Hey Maggie, let me give you and the other followers of the ObamaMessiah the best piece of advice you’re ever going to get besides, “Don’t drink the Kool-Aid.”

Barack is not Jesus, nor is he a particularly principled, competent, or decent man. He’s a politician to the core and one who seems much more concerned with his own self-aggrandizement than public service. If he gets into office, it’s highly likely that you will end up being as deeply disappointed in him as Republicans are with George Bush right now — and in our defense, we always thought Bush was just another man in a profession that has ethical standards akin to those of a prostitute, not the Son of God.

If you get what you want, regrettably for the country, I suspect the next four years are going to be very dark and disillusioning for you.
