Christian conservatives are condemning a YouTube video where a young boy is praying for President Obama.
In the video, the boy clasps his hands and lowers his head before thanking the president for “all the stuff that you helped us with.”
Later in the video, the boy says, “God has given you a special power, and you are going to handle it just fine.” At the end, he opens his eyes and raises his hands, yelling a triumphant, “Barack Obama!”
…CainTV’s Robert Laurie wrote, “If you thought that Barack Obama was just a mortal man elected to a temporary position in office, you thought wrong. According to this video, he’s much, much, more than that. He is a divine instrument, replete with God-given ‘special powers.’”
WorldNetDaily condemned the young boy for “praying TO Obama. Not for him. Not about him. TO him.” This is despite the fact that the first words out of the boy’s mouth are “A prayer for President Barack Obama.”
And Alex Jones’ InfoWars took its criticism of the video to yet another level: “The controversial prayer video is just the latest example of the type of feverish leader worship historically only witnessed in communist and totalitarian regimes, such as North Korea, Mao’s China and Nazi Germany.”
