People dont actually think obama is the messiah. That is nonsense. They just like what he represents. He represents someone who, if he works his 4 years right, can bring a lot of people together and do many good things.

how can anyone know the thoughts of others? I have met over five people in my town who truly believe that he is "Jesus". any association is blasphemous, be it in jest or truth.

Oh i think some believe he is a messiah, other people think he is the anti-christ so both extremes are represented. Balance is restored

Obama is promising a lot of stuff and he's a politician! Where he to be the first ever to actually do all that without sacrifices... that will be just amazing


Time will only tell whether he's truly a good guy or he's just a wolf in sheep's cloth.

Name and country of origin does not matter


I don't believe they pray for him, but worship... it's getting there. It's quite ridiculous, really.

I'm not a follower of him nor of McCain. I believe that SOME people who are for him are the ones who are taking it to the next level - exageration, yes.

Haha. Oh trust me i know how you feel. I lived in a tiny town very similar in pennsylvania. I actually live in nc too, high point to be exact. Never go there hah that place is not fun .

But yes I would like to hope obama is neither as well. I think people should just accept him as the president, and move on .

Scarily enough, yeah, a few people actually do.

a rose by any other name would smell as sweet. i guess the same can be said for dog crap. My point is that no man should be elevated. he is a person, like you and I.

when the end is nigh, i assure you, we will all know it.

The simple explanation would be maybe because when surrounded by a cesspool of conniving vile souls the one that seem the less evil seems like the ultimate good.
There seem to be something messianic about Obama because he seems to avoid being just another bad statistic(for now at least). His imperfections and future mistakes will still make him a prey to inevitable crucifixion though.


Honestly I am not impressed with Obama , I find him as normal as can be and he’s gonna be just another president, but since he’s the first African-American president in a country where blacks were considered “mere things” just a couple of decades ago, the world makes a fuss about it. Seems like a giant leap but it’s still just minor progress in the whole scheme of things. Humanity still has a long way to go.

Read your bibles. We all know what happens to people/civilizations that worship false prophets.

You're right, some do feel both ways. As to those who honestly feel he may be "the messiah", they're a minuscule minority.

In my experience, nine times outta ten whenever I've heard someone refer to Obama as "messiah" it's been a republican/conservative using the term in a derogatory manner. I'm not a very religious guy, but I can't help but wonder what Jesus would think of the term "messiah" being reduced to no more than a political slur.

I helped paved 311 ... I have heard nobody declare him messiah or anti-christ ... He will be proven a liar before he is done though. Just as Bush had war in his eyes, Obama has deception in his ...

It just goes to show how desperate people are for something different in their lives that they have to resort to creating a God to fill that gap.

I do recall a passage in the Bible that says near the time of the end, people will begin to place fellow man to the level of a God..a false prophet and look upon him as a messiah.

Well...there you go. Prophecy being filled right down to the letter.



Cheers!!!!

The OP reminds me of that scene in Monty Python's The Life of Brian:

"Only the Messiah would say he's not the Messiah!"


I can honestly see some of the hardcore Obama zealots adopting this line of reasoning, too.

I believe people really do believe he is a messiah. Look at this blog site obamamessiah.blogspot.com...

I hope this is a spoof site or some kind of joke.


Well, if they think he is the Christ, the color is correct, isn't it? People who have pictures of Jesus hanging on their wall seem to forget that Christ was from the Middle East, and was a Black Man. Obama is not the Messiah, nor the Anti-Christ, he is but a man, nothing more, or less. I guess people see in him things they wish to see.
