Well, I think Nelson Medulla is kinda given a god like status, now that he is dead. Kinda like Lincoln are frequently been seen as a living god by lots of Americans. (In fact, I think even when he is alive, there are lots of people who believe Lincoln is the reincarnation of the arch angel Michael, which is kinda funny, because according to the bible, the Christian god, endorse slavery and it is Lucifer that is against slavery. [If u read the bible carefully enough u realized, despite the bible claim the Christian god is good guy and Satan is the bad guy, in reality, Satan is the good guy and the Christian guy is the bad guy.] So, it probably make more sense to think Lincoln is the reincarnation of Lucifer to liberate the slaves. But consider Christian, think Christian god is good guy and Satan is bad guy and most people don't read the bible that carefully anyway, make sense for most good people of the time, to think Lincoln is the reincarnation of the arch angel Michael and the President of the pro slavery south is the reincarnation of Lucifer.) I think Nelson Medulla is seen as a living god by many people also and that is just going to pile on now, consider he is now dead.
