Come to Obama

Have you read about a Smith College girl's come to Obama moment? H/T Jim Geraghty

Or, perhaps you've seen this.

H/T Jonah Goldberg

Everyone has a faith, even Christopher Hitchens. To paraphrase Chesterton, "If you don't believe in God, you'll believe in anything.". I wonder if this looking to Obama as saviour is a backlash to the legalisms that must occur when one thinks God's law/love is too tough, and try believing in animal rights, global warming, social justice, etc. While all of these types of movements have their merits, they cannot save and and they are never satisfied. Are you against global warming? Then why have haven't you gotten rid of that car yet? Do you really love animals? Then why are you drinking milk? Do you love the poor? Then how can you possibly shop at Walmart?

False gods are never satisfied, and if someone thinks that Obama is god, woe to him when he finds out just what price he exacts.
