Love how SS just spews those liberal talk points! If she had even picked up a Bible or even believed in Jesus, she would have realized what a moronic statement she made.

So hilarious how the liberal crowd and their anti-Christian crowd will fall upon comparisons of their liberal hero's to religious figures.

Why is invoking the great name of Jesus only appropriate when the left use it? Obama is no more like Jesus than the rest of us!

SS has stated publically that she does not even believe in God and appals Christianity. I guess she just mentioned Jesus for the talking points.

Typical Hollywood phony!

Somewhere in the bible it says something about false prophets and the stupid and sin filled people, how they are easy prey to the false prophet, apparently I see this is true.

Didn't expect such nonsense from Susan Sarandon but I guess she is one of the hollywwod people, full of drugs, booze and apparently off her rocker.

Wow. I didn't know that GAPatriot65 was so powerful that he could read all the way from Georgia to Missouri and FORCE you to read this.

Even more so, he made you reply.

Sounds like someone can't handle the truth.

That's all that is being reported here - is the truth of what was said. Are you telling me that The Hill is now on your list as bogus news sources? One of the top publications that our Congressional reps receive and speak to?

Ok - I see the liberal revisionism is in full effect.

I have two words to anyone who puts stock in anything celebrities have to say...."Celebrity Jeopardy". They have to "dumb" the questions down for them and they still can't answer them.

Our Dearest Minister of Enlightenment and Propaganda has once again posted an article with a misleading headline.

Read the original. One actress compares Obama to Jesus. One actor compares Obama to Gandhi. The rest make comments about the Inaugural events like you'll find on Entertainment Tonight.

Besides, Susan Sarandan's comparison to Jesus is not over the top. We live in a post Christian era, and cannot take for granted that average Americans are believers like the pastor or the church members are.

Secular non believers or seekers will view Jesus as a historical figure. He might be called a charismatic leader, a revolutionary or dissenter, or even a "community organizer".

Christians will call Jesus their Lord and Savior, the Son of God, their Redeemer. It can sound disrespectful and demeaning to Jesus to use labels like community activist or feminist. He doesn't get due respect.

Some Christians might expect more reverence than Saradon offers, but she has never claimed to be a professing Christian. She has always come across as a well meaning, thoughtful American citizen, definitely a secularist.

It's unfair to call her comments moronic. Jesus doesn't have low approval ratings like George W Bush. He is esteemed highly by many people who don't buy into Christian faith. Christians will regard Jesus according to a whole different world view.

You have to know the difference.

I voted for Obama myself, but this is totally over the top. It shows a lack of perspective and makes her look ridiculous. I want him to do the best job possible, partly because of the shape this country is in. But this will make it impossible for me to take SS seriously again.
