Our Lightworker President Still Has His Worshippers

As hard as it is to believe, even after four years of the inept comedy stylings of the Obama administration as a substitute for government, we still have in this great land people who continue to worship, as occurred in 2008, the South Side Messiah.  Signs of this include the movie The Obama Effect, which reminds me of an old Stalinist propaganda movie with lesser production values, and this piece of tripe that our old friend Christopher Johnson, a non-Catholic who has taken up the cudgels for the Faith so frequently that I have designated him Defender of the Faith, shines a light on at Midwest Conservative Journal:

Write about the Episcopal Organization long enough and every so often, you’ll run up against something that stops you cold.  Seems that the Rev. Mark Bozzuti-Jones, who works at Trinity-Wall Street, just published a book entitled The Gospel of Barack Hussein Obama According to Mark.  Here’s how Bozzuti-Jones blurbed the book at Amazon.com:

The Gospel of Barack Hussein Obama According to Mark is designed to initiate the reader into a meditation on what it means to be human, what it means to be a manifestation of God, and how Barack Obama is a unique and important manifestation of God’s desire for human flourishing. In a blend of words from his public speeches, imagined conversation, and fictional situations, the book highlights Obama’s real stance on social justice and, in particular, economic and political empowerment. It juxtaposes ancient Biblical form and contemporary reality, challenging the reader to see and seek God in all persons. “Our life-defining texts must be porous and we must be imaginative in our engagement with them. Let this book be a reminder not to so credit sacred texts or cultural icons that they lead us to hatred and violence in the name of God. When we see the Divine in another, we must name it. We must respect it. The practice demands nothing less than Love.

Um…okay.  If you use Amazon’s Look Inside feature and read the first few pages of this thing, you discover a book that is so over-the-top that David Fischler thinks it might be a joke.  I’m not so sure.  Over at Trinity’s site, Bozzuti-Jones comments:

This is a project close to [Bozzuti-Jones’] heart. “It means a lot to me because this is my first self-published book, and there is something special about that: a book like this is truly mine in the sense that I struggled with it, I wrestled with it, and I ensured that it saw the light of day.”

It may surprise some to hear that it is not meant to be a political book. “I have tremendous respect for all people, no matter which side of the political spectrum they are on,” Bozzuti-Jones explained. “That said, I do believe that President Obama holds a significant place in American history and world history. What Barack Hussein Obama has accomplished is the fulfillment of the constitution of the United States: that all people are created equal, and so more than any other person in the last decades he has fulfilled the American dream.”

The book comes from Bozzuti-Jones’ incarnational theology. “I think oftentimes, as Christians and as a world, we don’t give sufficient credit to what it means to be born in the image and likeness of God. I think if more human beings could see the divine in the other, they could recognize that human beings can point to the divine in each other.”

Normally, this is where I’d say, “I got nuthin’.”

Go here to read the brilliant rest.  A perennial question I think for the next few decades will be, “How in the world were Americans stupid enough to elect Obama president?”  Books like the above tell the tale.  Sometimes the majority of the people of a country simply take leave of their senses for a time, and that isn’t a bad explanation for the Age of Obama.

  • The Gospel of Barack Hussein Obama According to Mark is designed to initiate the reader into a meditation on what it means to be human, what it means to be a manifestation of God, and how Barack Obama is a unique and important manifestation of God’s desire for human flourishing.

    I threw up a little in my mouth reading that…

  • ” Let this book be a reminder not to so credit sacred texts or cultural icons that they lead us to hatred and violence in the name of God. ”

    Another reminder that atheism, nihilism, and the other ism’s of worldly power brokers just end up needing the golden calves to replace desecrated good.

    ” Bozzuti-Jones explained. “That said, I do believe that President Obama holds a significant place in American history and world history. What Barack Hussein Obama has accomplished is the fulfillment of the constitution of the United States: that all people are created equal, and so more than any other person in the last decades he has fulfilled the American dream.” Free rides aren’t the stuff of dreams or the Constitution of the United States.

    The book comes from Bozzuti-Jones’ incarnational theology. “ ”

    The video clip has no dream come true looking happy souls – poor kids. Poor in Spirit … indoctrinated, not created. May they live and learn from their poverty of Spirit.

    ” fulfillment of the constitution of the United States: that all people are created equal, ”

    except the ones that are EXEMPT and are the Contributors List and the politically disagreeable . E. Orders and E. Privilege for the not so equal.

  • Exodus 20:1-3:

    “And God spoke all these words, saying, ‘I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. You shall have no other gods before me.’”

    Idolatry will always and everywhere result in the suspension of religious freedom. Just ask Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, or the Maccabean brothers. We live in perilous times little different from what the Weimar Republic faced after World War I, and we all know how that turned out.

  • From the video, it is obvious, that the minor child, an un-emancipated child, without informed consent to give or adult enough to vote, has been and is being indoctrinated. The minor child is being used and abused to indoctrinate others, especially the minor children. This is proof positive in a court of law, that Obama does not rule according to the will of the people and will commit treason to get his own will accomplished. VIVA CRISTO REY

  • If you ever wanted any insight into how early Christians could fall and end up burning a pinch of incense to Caesar’s genius, here you go.

  • Oh, did I say IMPEACH? The child may be Obama’s constituent, but she is her own person. Using innocent children without the understanding to know what they are doing is a violation of their innocence and their informed consent, their citizenship. The child who has been indoctrinated for political purposes is being abused. The innocence of a child may only be presented to almighty God, the Supreme Sovereign Being, “their Creator” as inscribed into our Declaration of Independence. Because Obama is president, he has committed treason against this person, a child, a citizen. What is a little slavery, indoctrination is filial ensalvement, when one is Obama? There is no money that can buy the un-informed consent of a minor person, the consent and all minor person’s civil rights are held in trust for her by God, by her parents and finally by the court…not Obama. If the child’s civil rights are violated by enslavement to filial love without her informed consent, making of her a political issue instead of a free person, the courts are not the final arbiters, the child into adulthood is. In most states it is eighteen years and two months.

  • The forces of evil running public education are brainwashing, not educating, innocent little chldren.

    Talk about Obama-worshiping imbeciles . . .

    The Gospel According to Obama: uncharitable, implacable, hateful, dishonest, . . .

    Jim Treacher: “Here’s The Smartest President Ever, speaking in Roanoke on Friday . . . writing Romney’s next ad for him. . . . Barack Obama openly stokes bitter resentment against Americans who work hard, take risks, and create jobs.”

    “You don’t deserve what you have earned.”

    From comments: Americans to Obama: “Funny, we were thinking the exact same thing about you…”

  • Talk about Obama-worshiping imbeciles . . . I think Lenin called them “useful idiots”. The truth does not abide in them.

  • Mary–

    Were you this up-in-arms about the video of the child singing “no homos in heaven” from Indiana?

    As for the original article and the comments–my what vitriol and hatred from a bunch of self-proclaimed “christians”. (Just so you all understand, the quotations and the lower case is my personal way of noting that, while you proclaim to follow Christ, you certainly don’t act like it. Talk is cheap.)

  • “Were you this up-in-arms about the video of the child singing ‘no homos in heaven’ from Indiana?”

    “9 Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived! Neither sexually immoral people, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor passive homosexual partners, nor dominant homosexual partners, 10 nor thieves, nor greedy persons, not drunkards, not abusive persons, not swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.” Lexham Translation of 1st Corinthians 6:9-10.

    Malakos (the Greek word for passive homosexual partners) and arsenokoit?s (the Greek word for dominate homosexual partners) are NOT getting into Heaven. Period.

    BUT celebate homosexuals who repent are getting into Heaven. BTW, adulterers and fornicators don’t make it into Heaven either except that repent and stop the sinning. The same rules apply to everyone: no sex outside of marriage between one man and one woman. Anything other than that means hell.

  • Just so you all understand, the quotations and the lower case is my personal way of noting that, while you proclaim to follow Christ, you certainly don’t act like it.

    No Kidding! I am completely shocked that someone could use air quotes to imply sarcasm on the internet. Had you not issued your excessively long disclaimer, I would have spent the next few seconds thinking you genuinely thought us to be Christians. Instead, I will now have to reflect on my life now that some drive by troll labeling himself cminca thinks I am somehow less than Christian.

  • Paul Z. wrote:

    “Instead, I will now have to reflect on my life now that some drive by troll labeling himself cminca thinks I am somehow less than Christian.”

    If one proclaims social justice, the common good and peace at any price from the hill tops, then to liberal philosophy that one is Christian.

    If one insists on holiness before the Lord God Almighty, personal responsibility and accountability for one’s actions, reverence before the Most Holy Sacrament of the Eucharist, and frequent Confession and Penance, then to liberal philosophy one is a medieval right wing neo-con reactionary.

    It all goes back to what the Prophet Ezekiel noted in chapter 18 of his book: “Y’all keep on whinin’ that ‘God ain’t fair, God ain’t fair’ because He told you what’ll happen if you sin. Quit your whining; you’re gettin’ what you always wanted.” (Loosely paraphrased, of course)

  • So what does cminca think about the claim that “Barack Obama is a unique and important manifestation of God’s desire for human flourishing”?

    Oh, never mind. He/She’s just here to declare personal awesomeness against those nasty inferior christers.

    Box–checked.

  • Something like a cause and effect kind of thing seems to happen in comment sections – maybe it’s coincidence or my limited reading time – which is: use of words implying delusions of someone for lack of any better terms brings on another using of accusations of hatred and judgements, in a vitriolic, condescending tone.

  • another using accusations

  • cminca,

    Did you read St Mark’s Gospel? In Mark, Jesus speaks of Himself as the Son of Man Who came to give His life to free people from sin and to win for them salvation.

    I find it highly offensive for a so-called clergyman to subvert the Gospel, the Good News of eternal life – the rewards of which jesus won for us by His Life , Death and Resurrection – to support a dull and illogical nobody like Obama.

  • He/She’s just here to declare personal awesomeness against those nasty inferior christers.

    Wow, that was really funny. I was going post something but the awesomeness of that post says it all.

  • “(Just so you all understand, the quotations and the lower case is my personal way of noting that, while you proclaim to follow Christ, you certainly don’t act like it. Talk is cheap.)”

    Not as cheap as a troll condemning complete strangers on the net for pointing out the obvious: that the Southside Messiah still has a cult follower that is weird in the extreme.

  • “You Got Nothin”, I got sick! One Our Father, One Hail Mary and One Glory Be To the Father. Oh and yes many “Acts Of Contrition” or in paraphrasing
    Salley Fields, “I’m trying I’m REALLY trying.”

  • In any case, a book comparing Obama with Muhammad would be closer to the truth.

  • cminca: “Mary–

    Were you this up-in-arms about the video of the child singing “no homos in heaven” from Indiana?”
    An homosexual in heaven will be practicing the homosexual act forever. Pretty boring. An homosexual in hell will be practicing the homosexul act forever. Pretty boring. God says : “Do not do sodomy. It gets pretty boring.” Man dies the way he lives. Man chooses heaven or hell for himself. The child singing ” no homos in heaven” is correct. Singing the Truth
