Obamavotive

Addendum to this post.



Update: My friend, Grace, left these great thoughts in the comments section:
Whether you are a Democrat or Republican or love or hate Obama, it's scary when a mere human is viewed as a savior. The biggest problem in the world today is our sin, and seeking a human savior will always bring disappointment, no matter what good they can do on this earth. What reassurance that we serve the King of Kings and that no matter what happens politically, we have nothing to fear for He is our Savior and the Lord of this universe.

That is pretty crazy...but he isn't depicted (in that particular image) as the Lord. Rather, its a plagerism of an icon of St. Martin de Porres.

You're right. In this picture, he's not depicted as the Lord, but John's post was an addendum to the post about a website that is called "Is Obama the Messiah?" And, the way they worship and pray to saints in many places (Peru being one of them) is definitely idolatrous and putting these humans (St. Martin de Porres included) as deities.
