More Popular Than Jesus Christ

More Popular Than Jesus Christ
Kevin Bryant

Driving into work every morning I listen to a local talk radio host named Chris Stigall. Some of you may have heard of him. He substitutes sometimes for such nationally carried host as Michael Savage and Rusty Humphrey.

This morning when I got in the car, he was doing a piece on our own local U.S. representative, “The Good Reverend” Emanuel Cleaver. Emanuel Cleaver who is a former mayor of Kansas City, MO, an ordained minister and during the 2008 election, he was one of Hillary Clinton’s “Super Delegates”. I do give him credit for sticking with Hillary instead of doing what was popular among black delegates and jumping ship to the Obama side regardless of the choice made by those who they were selected to represent. That’s about all I give him positive credit for.

"Did you know that President Obama is more popular than Jesus Christ?," Cong. Emanuel Cleaver asked us. "I didn't like this bill, but I voted for it. It's hard to stand up to such a popular president."

I about wrecked my car this morning when I heard this. Here is a man who claims to be a servant of God stating that our President is more popular than Jesus Christ. If so, then Obama was correct when he stated this country was no longer a Christian nation. A statement I wholeheartedly disagree with.

This is one of the major problems with this congress. Not many who serve in congress are willing to stand on principals and publicly oppose this administration. News Flash for “The Good Reverend” Emanuel Cleaver and congress in general. You don’t serve this President or his administration. Your loyalties should be as follows, God, Family, Country and Those you were elected to represent. You don’t serve your party first. You don’t serve this administration first. You don’t serve yourself first.

The bill in question was a funding bill for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. He voted for it where 51 democrats who opposed it voted “Nay”. Personally I think his vote in this matter was the right one to be cast, but the manner in which he did it shows no backbone, no principals and worst of all, shows a total lack of respect towards the military who want to be there AND be allowed to finish the job they started.

By his statement he would rather disagree with God than with Obama who happens to be as mortal as myself and everybody else on this planet unless he proves to be ‘The third Anti-Christ”. I’m not yet convinced he’s not, but yet to be convinced he is. Of course main stream media is going to give him a pass on this because 1) Cleaver is a democrat, 2) Cleaver is black, 3) Cleaver claims to be a servant of God, and last but certainly not least, 4) this would not reflect well on Obama, his administration or the democratic party in general.
