Obama’s Messiah image is fading. Too many people know that above all, Barry Soetoro Obama seems not to believe in Christ, but to want to be Him

Holy Week, Barack Obama-style

Now that it’s “after my election”, not “if I’m reelected” (March 26, hot mic private South Korea conversation with Russian President Dmitry Medvedev when he said he would have more flexibility on missile defense after my election) it will be interesting to see what atrocities are forthcoming from Barack Hussein Obama at the White House Easter Prayer Breakfast the day after tomorrow.

It was at the 2011 Easter Prayer Breakfast when Obama managed to offend millions of Christians when he said, “There’s something about the resurrection of our savior Jesus Christ that puts everything else into perspective.”

Last year when Obama hosted what he called the “second annual” Easter Prayer Breakfast, he said he would be making it a permanent part of life in the White House.

‘I’m going to make it annual,” Obama told Christian leaders from across the country gathered in the East Room. “The Easter Egg Roll, that’s well established. The Prayer Breakfast, we started last year.” (NHCLC)

With his Catholic church-forced mandate for employers to cover birth control and with polls indicating that as many as one in five Americans suspect Obama of being a Muslim, it’s hard to say what will be coming from Obama this Holy Week.

Already reelected in his own head, Obama was presented to the world at the 2008 DNC Convention as the Messiah. People not only cheered, but fainted. The Rev. Jesse Jackson, now leading the current Big USA racial divide, cried.

But Obama had a Jesus fixation long before stepping out from faux Greek columns in Denver.

In a 2000 performance of Haydn’s “Seven Last Words of Christ” performed in the Rockefeller Memorial Chapel at the University of Chicago, it is Obama’s voice you hear reading the Gospel passage (Matthew 27: 51-54) about how “the earth quaked, and the rocks were split, and the graves opened”, and the centurion and others guarding Jesus “feared greatly, saying, “Truly, this was the son of God!” (New York Times, April 11, 2009).

“In 2000, Barack Obama not only read that dramatic Gospel passage before Haydn’s finale, he also delivered the introduction to the piece’s opening movement. His role was hardly noteworthy in 2005, however, when this column reported on Haydn’s “Seven Last Words” and the Vermeer String quartet, the group had been performing it since 1997 in Rockefeller Memorial Chapter.

“The focus of the column was on the musicians’ earlier discovery that, for them, the work was transformed when they performed it not as a concert piece but restored to a church setting, with spoken meditations between the slow sonatas inspired by each of Jesus’ seven final utterances from the cross as found in the Gospels.”

The voice of Obama recorded for the 2000 performance was chosen because of his civic leadership on Chicago’s south side.

Obama’s voice rang out at Rockefeller Memorial Chapel but he kept his physical presence for 20 years at (“God damn America”) Rev. Jeremiah Wright’s Trinity United Church of Christ, also on Chicago’s south side.

On the secular side, there’s a dramatic improvement in the picture chosen for the traditional White House collectible Easter Egg this year: Portuguese water dog Bo’s picture, but Michelle Obama’s fingerprints are all over the Easter Egg hunt, motto of which is “Let’s go! Let’s play! Let’s Move!”, which is part of her controversial healthy eating campaign.

Meanwhile, Obama’s Messiah image is fading. Too many people know that, above all, Barry Soetoro Obama seems not to believe in Christ, but to want to be Him.

Holy Week, Barack Obama-style
