One has to ask how screwed up the Vatican State is to have promoted incompetents in decision making positions who vet future bishops. A bishop has to be monumentally stupid to support Obama.
But apparently, here's what we're getting from some of these dumbasses:
"Archbishop Gabriel Charles Palmer-Buckle of Accra, Ghana said Wednesday that there was "a divine plan behind" Obama's election.
"It's like the biblical story repeating itself," he told reporters, citing the Old Testament figure Joseph, who after being sold into slavery in Egypt ends up becoming a top official.
"We believe God has his own plans. God directs history," he said of the U.S. election. "We pray that it (Obama's presidency) brings blessings for Africa and the whole world."
I'm sorry, but people this monumentally stupid need to be retired.
Complete story here.
Some boob of a bishop in the UK also had virtual orgasms over Obama too, not long after the election, braying what a wonderful guy he was. He was forced to eat dirt and retract support.
Tell me Satan isn't busy trying to destroy the church from within. People need to grow a spine and some brains. And if they don't THEIR bosses should be accountable for not calling them to task.
[Oh, and if "God Directs History" He sure was asleep at the switch regards letting Hitler, Stalin, Lenin, Pol Pot and all those other tin horn Anti-Christs out there free to do their work. Perhaps this particular Archbishop would have been more successful as a witchdoctor? Somewhere there's a village with an idiot missing.]
[Update: on the link to the story there was this comment:
"This is why a Reformation was needed back in the 16th century. These men are Roman Catholic bishops and they put 'race' before issues of abortion, homosexually, euthanasia, etc. & etc.. I know 'race' trumps all in the American black community but I expected better from Roman Catholic bishops, even if they are black. I guess I was wrong. "
I'm assuming this person is a Protestant, but can you blame him for sayiing what he did? These people DO judge us by the "fruits of our work" and if there are rotten tree stumps of bishops in charge, then can he be blamed? You see outrageous statements from "race first" people, are you really going to look into the theology of the Eucharist and try and understand something outwardly intangible to the people uninstructed? If it wasn't for the Eucharist, I'd be long gone myself.]
