Yesterday, we retold an amazing story about Barack Obama on the campaign trail. Since then, we have heard rumors of several more. Although none have been officially confirmed, the Vatican is busy verifying the details.
Apparently, when Obama had entered Baltimore, an Army captain came to him, asking for help. “Senator,” he said, “one of my soldiers lies at Walter Reed paralyzed and in terrible suffering. I blame the war-mongering cowboy George W. Bush and myself for voting for him.”
Obama said to him, “I will go and heal him.”
The captain replied, “Senator, I do not deserve to have you travel with a Republican like me. But just say the word, and my solider will be healed. For I myself am a man under authority, with soldiers under me. I tell this one, ‘Go,’ and he goes; and that one, ‘Come,’ and he comes. I say to my soldier, ‘Do this,’ and he does it.”
When Obama heard this, he was astonished and said to those following him, “I tell you the truth, I have not found any Democrat with such great faith. I say to you that many Republican voters will come from the east and west coasts, and will take their places at state dinners with Kennedy, Kerry and Edwards at the White House. But Democrats of little faith will be thrown outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”
Then Obama said to the Army captain, “Go! It will be done just as you believed it would.” And his soldier was healed at that very hour.
I’m wondering… shouldn’t newspapers place all of Obama’s quotes in red text?
