Homer R. Dodson: Editorial 12-15-12

To the Editor:

I was born during the long terms of the Initial. He died.

And then he was replaced by The Cusser

And then came Baldy and a time of quietness.

And then came Camelot and somebody killed him.

And then came Landslide who encouraged dependency and deficit

And then came Jaws aka as Tricky.

And then came The Stumbler for a little while.

And then came The Grinner with interest and inflation.

And then came The Gipper.

And then came Bush One.

And then came Slick.

And then came Bush Two and one to blame.

And then came The Teleprompter.

I’ve survived a bunch and had my share of ups and downs and the story doesn’t end on the Teleprompter.

I notice that Comedian Jamie Foxx referred to Barack Obama as, “our lord and savior, Barack Obama’ at the 2012 Soul Train Awards. The crowd was bored when Foxx said, “lord and savior,” but cheered wildly when he said, “Barack Obama.”

Perhaps Mr. Foxx and that crowd may ask Barack, “Are you the Little Horn of Daniel chapter 7: Are you the Prince that shall come of Daniel chapter 9: 24-27? Are you the Beast that rises from Revelation chapter 13? Are you he or should we look for another?”

    Look at my last paragraph. It is directed at that crowd that cheered Jamie Foxx when he said, “our lord and saviour, Barack Obama.” Those people are looking for someone so I suggested they ask President Obama if it is he or should they look for another.

    Christ said, “I am come in my Father’s name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive.” John 5:43

    Now, I don’t mind flack or dissent. It suits me and helps keep the paper popular. And, I mean no ill. Isn’t it good we can have this back and forth whether in the paper or internet or both.

    And I wish you and your family a Merry Christmas.

    So if you don’t think President Obama is the anti-Christ then why write an editorial about it? An editorial is intended to express your opinion. If your opinion is that he’s just a regular human being then what you’re doing is fear-mongering and it has no place in an opinion column.

    “The whole world” did not cheer for Barack Obama, nor is the whole world following him – nearly half of this country treats him with utter disrespect & suggestions such as the one you made – that you don’t even think is true ! – are deeply offensive .

    Perhaps that’s the reason I felt the need to give you a little “flack”, as you call it.

    Today I saw President Barack Obama holding back tears as he spoke about 20 young children and 8 adults who were just shot at their school, then I opened up the Advocate and saw this “editorial” asking if our President is the Beast from Revelations.
    No, Mr. Dodson, he is not the Anti-Christ. He is a decent man who is trying to do his job. I don’t understand why so many people feel the need to hurl ridiculous accusations at the leader of our country. If you want to be helpful & patriotic, then please, by all means discuss any of the endless problems that we face as a nation – I would LOVE to read some intelligent, respectful discourse in this column. But can we all agree that if, indeed, Barack Obama was a secret terrorist or a Nazi or a Communist or the Anti-Christ that he would not have waited to get elected a SECOND TIME to put his “evil” plan into action? Enough already!

    You stated in your letter that comedian Jamie Foxx called Mr. Obama “our lord and saviour” – perhaps he was being ironic or sarcastic, or trying (and failing) to be funny because he’s a COMEDIAN. You may not believe it, but Barack Obama doesn’t have the power to control what comes out of other people’s mouths. If he did, I think he’d start with people such as yourself.

      Look, I don’t think Obama’s the Anti-Christ. But, facts do show that the crowd wildly cheered when the comic referred to him as “our lord and saviour. That did happen.

      It is those in that category that I would try to reach and get them to open the Bible.

      And scriptures show in many places that when two secific men come, they will do signs and wonders and the whole world will wildly cheer and follow one of them while the other points to him…sorta an imitation of John The Baptist.

      There are types of Anti – Christ. The biggest type in our recent times would be Hitler and I’m sure many thought he might be it at the time.

      Woe to the world when the real one comes. Hopefully you and I won’t see it. But, many of our loved ones will.

      I dodn’t expect this type of flack, but thanks for your view.
