Shame on Jamie. And shame on all the people that listened on, stood up, clapped and cheered his remarks. And more shame on Christian preachers who are still celebrating President Obama's re-election.
 
I pray that someone realizes that babies' civil rights and natural life, marriage, and family are under attack. Time to pray for revival and repentance. 
 
At the 2012 Soul Train Awards on November 25 Jamie Foxx said this: “First of all, giving honor to God and our lord and savior Barack Obama. Barack Obama.”
 
Calling the nation's most anti natural life and family president his Lord and Savior is blasphemy. Reminds one of the book of Daniel. 
 
This startling statement by Mr. Foxx reflects a genuinely sad sentiment of too many misguided voters, of all ethnic and denominational persuasions.  Remember that all classes of people re-elected Mr. Obama.
 
When I tell people that they don’t need to worship President Obama they say, “I’m not worshiping President Obama.”
 
But then when we hear Jamie Foxx on the Soul Train Awards and the people cheering, you have to wonder.
 
So this is outrageous; people worshiping President Obama. And I know people do that. With regards to my Uncle Martin I’ve always said, “Please do not worship Martin Luther King, Jr. When you go to that Memorial, thank God that He gave us such a man of God who was not perfect but served a perfect God and He loved you and tried to communicate that as best as he could.” Worship God, not the man. 
 
So I just think it’s outrageous. People do worship President Obama. Oh my God! Forgive us Father!
 
Pray for preachers and people alike. This is a perfect occasion for preachers to take exception and teach the people who Jesus Christ is.
 
It's a sin and a shame for Christian preachers to let the comedians preach blasphemy while the church looks on from the sidelines. 
 
We, the church, need to wake up. 
 
Wake up preachers! Wake up, church!
