Obama is Love
I attended a wedding recently, and as is often the case at such events, one of the readings was the famous passage from 1 Corinthians 13 on the meaning of love. I have heard or read this passage a dozen times or more, and have always viewed it in the context of interpersonal relationships such as marriage, family, friendship, etc. But for some strange reason, the wretched name "Barack Obama" mysteriously drifted through my brain as the reading began. Why, I know not.
Nevertheless, I suddenly began to hear the words of the famous passage as it applies to Obama, and I asked myself, "Is this a man who 'loves' his country? Is this a man who 'loves' America's citizens? Is this a man who 'loves' anyone?" You be the judge...
Love is patient and kind; love is not jealous or boastful; it is not arrogant or rude. Love does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrong, but rejoices in the right. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
--1 Corinthians 13:4-7
Perhaps we could just remove the word "love" and insert "Obama" in its place to make the point more clearly...
Obama is patient and kind; Obama is not jealous or boastful; Obama is not arrogant or rude. He does not insist on his own way; he is not irritable or resentful; he does not rejoice at wrong [especially when it befalls his opponents], but he rejoices in the right. Obama bears all things [and never blames anyone for anything], he believes all things [are possible for our great country - that shining city on a hill], he hopes all things [changes all things], and he endures all things [like going without vacations until the economy gets better, or intense scrutiny from an impartial media].
Don't you just feel all warm and fuzzy inside now?
