Obama the ‘messiah’?
Some people think that enthusiastic Obama supporters are going a bit overboard with manic support. Women fainting at rallies, musicians making Obama-themed videos — even journalists comparing Obama to a messiah. But don’t be too tough on the cult of personality surrounding the Illinois senator.
Why, just yesterday at a rally one of the women in the audience had been subject to bleeding for twelve years. She had suffered a great deal under the care of many doctors and had spent all she had, yet instead of getting better she grew worse.
When she heard about Obama, she came up behind him in the crowd and touched his Armani suit, because she thought, “If I just touch his clothes, I will be healed.” Immediately her bleeding stopped and she felt in her body that she was freed from her suffering.
At once Obama realized that power had gone out from him. He turned around in the crowd and asked, “Whoa, who touched the Armani?”
“You see the people crowding against you,” his campaign staff answered, “and yet you can ask, ‘Who touched me?'”
But Obama kept looking around to see who had done it. Then the woman, knowing what had happened to her, came and fell at his feet and, trembling with fear, told him the whole truth. He said to her, “Voter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace and be freed from your suffering. And please make a donation to barackobama.com.”
What a guy.
