Obama: The Good Shepherd?

This framed picture of President Obama was for sale recently in a California craft store. Obama is holding a lamb and a shepherd's crook. These elements in the picture portray him as a good shepherd.

Many portraits of bishops have been painted with these elements. Consider one of the most famous of Alexy II, Bishop of Moscow and All Russia.

Have we reached the place where people believe what they want to believe and don't want to be bothered by the facts?

Doesn't it seem that many don't want to use their minds and have given up thinking critically? This attitude gives rise to tyrants, causes nations to slip into darkness and leads to great evil. Pray for our nation.

Bishop Alexy II was a priest and a bishop. Obama is neither. He is a politician. Let's get real here, folks!
