I suppose it was bound to happen. Barack Obama is to be presented with a monkey-god idol by some Hindu well-wishers. They say it is to be for good luck in the upcoming election. Gene Edward Veith asks a good question about how far one might go in receiving gifts of this sort as a born-again Christian. I, too, am interested. I'm wondering how Black pastors are reacting to this. A wink? A nod? Veith is charitable however.
"I do understand that Obama can’t be held responsible for what some fans of his in India ascribe to him, but surely, as the Christian he claims to be, he should draw the line at idolatry, shouldn’t he?"
Baruch Hashem and Soli Deo Gloria!
