At the recent Soul Train awards entertainer Jamie Foxx called our President: "our Lord and Savior Barack Obama". This isn't the first time someone has spoken of Obama in terms of Divinity, and I am wondering how others react at hearing such a claim? From the following list please select one that best fits your own reaction at hearing the President referred to in terms of Divinity (elaborate if you wish):1. Agrees Obama is Divine, 2. Merely surprised anyone could think this, 3. Offended, 4. Indifferent, 5. The claim made you laugh a perfectly good soda thru your nose.

Oh by the way Iove the photo of Obama that goes with this question. It is very funny.
I have never heard anyone refer to him as devine. To do so is only slightly less ridiculous than referring to him as a fascist, a Nazi, or Hitler reincarnated, all of which I have heard.
Nobody refers to Her Majesty as divine and she is a devout Christian who would never consider such a notion. A statement that either her or her supporters consider her divine is offensive and very untrue.
Larry Wall, while I'm not a Christian myself I did feel it was more than a little insensitive to the Christian religion. Thanks for sharing your thoughts!
