Cult of Personality? What Cult of Personality?

The Second Coming

And the people made acclamation, saying: It is the voice of a god, and not of a
man.  And forthwith an angel of the Lord struck him, because he had not given the
honour to God: and being eaten up by worms, he gave up the ghost.

Acts 12: 22-23

  • The photo reminds me of a police line-up.

    The Acts quote (and others like it) is never far from my mind these days. Sinfully so, perhaps. But I just can’t bear modern life otherwise.

  • The photo reminds of another fascist: Mussolini, who said in 1937, “We have buried the putrid corpse of liberty.”

    St. Paul, Romans 1:25, ” Who changed the truth of God into a lie; and worshipped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.”

  • Saying anything about him could indeed become an occasion of sin.

  • They have stopped publishing in paper. Of what is this an image?

  • Benito Mussolini’s second coming. Mussolini and his wife were dragged through the streets of Italy by their feet and hung upside down in the public square where they were beaten with clubs by all of their victims. Obama has long portrayed the likeness of Mussolini, even once tried FDR. Benito was no good and Barack is not a lamb.

  • They are using this image at the Daily Beast, so it is authentic. They have published the article by Evan Thomas online (or an abridgement of it). It is banal.
    Thomas has a problem. The man has been in office for four years and his behavior patterns are recognizable. The only thing he has delivered is large quantities of gassy blather while Reid and Pelosi hatch their schemes (with the mute button pressed). Why does Thomas think anyone will entertain the idea that the next four years will be different?

  • “Why does Thomas think anyone will entertain the idea that the next four years will be different?”

    Religious faith Art.

  • Made in the image and likeness of God, all men are “sort of” divine. Obama needs to start representing his constituents, not one world government under the world bank. Obama is more sovereign than other sovereign persons, especially since Obama has sold out America’s sovereignty. To quote the cartoon character Hazel to the Russian diplomat: “your share is more equal than the rest” Obama’s share will become more and more equal as he removes the citizens’ sovereign freedoms and assumes total power.

  • ….worms may find him distasteful.

  • I wonder what they mean by “saving” Europe?

  • The left is stretching with all their effort to paint their leader in a positive light. They are necessarily approaching a supernatural characterization. After all, under his presidency our nation is more seriously divided, business is poor, and the family is under attack.

    If Obama were really a good leader, this over-reach to praise him would not be necessary. But alas, he is not a good leader at all. This article is indirect evidence.

    The outcome of the midterm election will be direct evidence.

  • Personality is a response to personhood. Obama discarded his sovereign personhood when he let American citizens, persons who became citizens at birth, die in a broom closet after they survived abortion. The cult cannot seriously honor such a nobody.

  • Algeria crisis resolved: hostages killed.

  • It rather reminds me of 2nd Maccabees, Chapter 9, where Antiochus dies.

    “Far from giving up his insolence, he was all the more filled with arrogance. Breathing fire in his rage against the Jews, he gave orders to drive even faster. As a result he hurtled from the speeding chariot, and every part of his body was racked by the violent fall.

    Thus he who previously, in his superhuman presumption, thought he could command the waves of the sea, and imagined he could weigh the mountaintops in his scales, was now thrown to the ground and had to be carried on a litter, clearly manifesting to all the power of God.c
    9
    The body of this impious man swarmed with worms, and while he was still alive in hideous torments, his flesh rotted off, so that the entire army was sickened by the stench of his corruption.d

    Shortly before, he had thought that he could reach the stars of heaven, and now, no one could endure to transport the man because of this intolerable stench.”

  • replacing “America” with what? Thank goodness people are beginning to see that America is more than what is in the outlines on the map– America is not just geophysical, or just political, more than an idea– America is not just any nation among the nations but it is endued with a spiritual reality.. America must live out her holy calling in physical political and idealogical ways. Otherwise it’s back to the way it was before….

  • In August 2010, The Washington Post Company sold Newsweek for $1.00 to an 81-year-old billionaire named Harman.

    Mr. Harman did not amass a billion dollars by consumating such ill-conceived transactions.
