Celebs compare Obama to Jesus, Gandhi

Jan 21, 2009 Full story: thehill.com 90

Movie star Susan Sarandon compared President Obama to Jesus. Broadway and film actor Alan Cumming thought of him more like Mahatma Gandhi.

“He is a community organizer like Jesus was,” Sarandon said Tuesday night on the bright blue carpet leading into the Creative Coalition’s 2009 Ball at the Harman Center for the Arts in Chinatown. “And now, we’re a community and he can organize us.”

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.
She was merely comparing his people-mobilizing skills with Jesus' skills, not claiming that he anywhere is that great. Neither would I "pick up a Bible" as you put it. If you want to believe he was God in human form, that he died to exounge your sins, etc, that's your business.

It's not Jesus the man that I hate, but Jesus the commodity that bible-pushers and con-artists have made out of him. Christianity for over five centuries has been the Trojan Horse of slavery, racism, genocide and a host of atrocities. People of non-European races need to view Bible-pushing with the same mistrust that victims of Stalin's terror view Marxist ideology.

Proves the point how STUPID celebs are and how the ones that are old and washed up come forward with stupid comments to get their names in the news.
Talk about some clueless morons. If they want to do some good, they should donate ALL their money to the poor and disadvantaged! Maybe donate all their money to the US to bail the country out of debt.

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.
.... we need "idiot" in the ratings chices....may jesus and bless u, along with the false "profit" too.......... remember, seperation of church and state libs!

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!
Because it's not possible to be Christian and conservative. The two religions contradict each other.

You don't have to change a thing about how you believe or worship.
It means you have to be bright enough to know the difference between somebody attacking Christianity and somebody who admires Jesus as a historical figure without buying into Christian faith.
Sorry if that's harsh, but if you discern no difference between Susan Sarandon and Christopher Hitchens or Bill Maher, you are clueless. You can reject all three. But if you don't know the difference between an enemy and somebody with an alternate opinion you are not at all equipped to talk about it.
.... good point poo poo.... obama needs to learn that repubs arent hispanic americans enemy,just that they have a different opinion, and biden needs to learn that the taliban is the enemy... i hope u point out to you lib pals that just because repubs have a dieffering opinion, they arent our enemy.... and im an indy, i realize it.......now those who burn our flag, well they seem to be the enemy......imho....
