Obama Implicitly Compares Himself to Pope and Jesus in Tribute Message

Obama is the antithesis of Jesus and all his teachings.
Check it out:

President Obama added his voice to Time‘s list of “The 100 Most Influential People” by penning a tribute to Pope Francis. By implication, Obama associated himself with the pontiff and ultimately to Jesus.

Obama called the pope “a moral leader in word and deed,” equating Francis’s message of inclusion with Jesus’s “essence.” Sprinkled within this panegyric was Obama’s own familiar refrain heard throughout his presidency: “alleviate poverty…reduce inequality…open new doors of opportunity and visions of possibility for everyone.”

Obama’s social agenda is nothing he has kept secret. Nor has the president ever shied away from comparing himself to other influential leaders: Lincoln, Gandhi, Mandela, or Reagan. In 2008, candidate Obama compared himself to John F. Kennedy with another familiar refrain saying, “Kennedy moved the country in a fundamentally different direction…I think we are in one of those fundamentally different times right now.”
