More of the idolatry which goes by the name of Americanism, this time from the left. On Friday, Newsweek’s editor, Evan Thomas, brought adulation over President Obama’s Cairo speech to a whole new level by declaring on MSNBC: “I mean in a way Obama’s standing above the country, above above the world, he’s sort of God.” And the really sad partt is that this sort of thing isn’t immediately declared sick. I’m still waiting for the President Obama holy cards and icons, and I hope that President Obama has enough sense to eschew this sort of worshipful praise. After all, he has an example to look to from his own scripture, in the story of Paul and Barnabas being declared Zeus and Hermes by the people of Lystra, (see Acts 14:11-18). I won’t hold my breath.
