    I have no faith in Obama nor George Bush nor any politician. I am frankly worried about the Cult of Personality that is springing up around Obama. If you are surrounded by people that treat you like a superior being, then you begin to act like one.

    While I do support Obama, I already have a Savior and Messiah thank you very much.

  3. I am excited about President Obama for all the right reasons. But I can’t help wondering if I’m the only one who sensed an eerie resemblance between today and Palm Sunday? The messiah-figure has made his triumphal entry into Jerusalem … But how long before the shouts of ‘Hosanna’ change into something else?

    Fr. Alexander,

    I suspect it will take longer than a week, but it will happen. Obama (how many crosses before a Messiah? 🙂 ) is probably the object of more projection of faith and belief than any president in modern times. Too many people (but I hope none here) are seeing him like a savior of our country. When he proves himself to be a fallen man like the rest of us, people will be angry. When he fails to live up to their expectations, people will be angry. When he does the slightest thing that looks moderate or conservative, people will be angry.

    Good conversation here. While I have great hopes for this presidency, there’s much he’s up against, not the least of which are the expectations that he will ‘change’ everything for the better right away. But I blame a lot of this on Bush. If he wasn’t such a bad president, we wouldn’t be putting this much trust and hope in the next one.

    Judging from the folks I talk to, I hear that people expect Obama to take this country in the right direction. I don’t hear people saying they expect it now. I hear complaints from the media but the average person that I encounter understands that this is going to take a long time and that it is going to be painful for all of us. All through his campaign and into his presidency, President Obama has reminded us of this and of the need for our involvement. So, I ask you, dear brothers and sisters, what are you doing to make sure he makes progress toward keeping those 500 promises? He can’t do it alone. He is not our Savior, Messiah or God. There is only One. But we sure can participate with the President and God in redeeming this country and saving this world. The poor need us as do embattled countries, the sick and the environment. Don’t mean to be preachy but let’s stay hopeful and focused on the goal(s).
