Hat tip to Mike Heiser , who posted this video to his website this morning. According to Ed Morrissey at HotAir.com,
The Gamaliel Foundation is a community-organizing group that acts as the ground troops for Barack Obama’s domestic policies, especially health-care reform. Anyone who has spent any time in church will recognize the worship cadence of this clip, which puts Obama in the place of the Lord in prayer:
The following video was made last December. For this group, the ‘healthcare’ issue had already earned a prayer long before any debate began. This prayer to Obama (Hear our cry, Obama) is disgusting and heretical. The speaker invokes the Prophet Jeremiah, who asked “Is there no balm in Gilead? Is there no physician there? Why then has the health of the daughter of my people not been restored?” (Jeremiah 8:22).
Many are saying that the response from the crowd is ‘Hear our cry, Obama’. I’ve listened to it several times now, and sometimes it sounds like ‘Hear our cry, O God’, but the very first response (at approximately 1:53) sounds very much like “Hear our cry, Obama.” Shameful.
Here’s the video. Listen carefully, and let me know what you hear.
