Master blogger Erick Erickson smacks the “Obama as Jesus” analogy at his “Confessions of a Political Junkie”-


Being a partisan, I want to win this election. And I think you lefties have come upon a winning strategy to help us do it. The whole “Jesus is to Obama as Pontius Pilate is to Sarah Palin” analogy will do nothing but inflame the senses of the evangelical community, others who recognize the offensiveness of the statement, and the edge of voters needed to push John McCain toward victory.

To say that Christ is a community organizer demeans the Savior of mankind and denies Him for who He is. Saul Alinsky, the man who, to quote Wikipedia, “is often credited with laying the foundation for the grassroots political organizing that dominated the 1960s” dedicated his book that started the community organizer fad to Lucifer — “the very first radical.” Lucifer was a community organizer in he Alinsky model. Lucifer convinced Adam and Eve of a reality not quite real and caused the world’s problems.

That is what a community organizer does. He convinces people that a problem barely perceived is very real and incites the community to fix the problem — no matter that the problem may be nonexistent or, if existent, a small matter. That is why Alinsky dedicated his book to Lucifer.
