I didnt make that title up, its the title of a prophetic gospel song written and made famous by Sister Rosetta Tharpe in 1944.
Aint life strange sometimes? If Sister Rosetta Tharpe thought things were getting stranger by the day in 1944, she would probably go in cardiac arrest if she were alive today. The advent of the Obama presidency is shaping up to be one of the strangest presidencies in our history. And he’s not even in office yet.
Take for example the ongoing political-religious spitting war involving prayer, homosexuals, Rick Warren and Barak Obama. You couldn’t dream up a stranger mix of components. Regarding the presidential invite to pray a political prayer, the openly homosexual bishop of the Episcopal church had to get his 45 cents in. It appears Vickie Gene Robinson is feeling very slighted by the president-elect for not being selected as the preacher-for-pay at what will be a media saturated inarguration.
“I’m all for Rick Warren being at the table,” Robinson told The NY Times, but “we’re talking about putting someone up front and center at what will be the most-watched inauguration in history, and asking his blessing on the nation. And the God that he’s praying to is not the God that I know.”
“The God he is praying to is not the God that I know”???
I should name this the battle of the false prophets. One false prophet is angry that the other false prophet is in the spotlight. Strange things are happening everyday people.
Perhaps false prophet Robinson is angry because Obama led him on and made him believe he would be the official false prophet of the Obama administration. Obama has done that to a lot of people /groups. So much for “hope and change.” Obama is acting like a loose girl in an all boys school: he’s trying to let everybody get in on the act, but the problem is all of the guys think they are Obama’s only love.
