The pontiff gets a fancy new app, the president gets more pulpit props, and Leonardo Da Vinci gets the Hostess treatment. Does he deserve such a fate?

  1. Obama in no way surpasses FDR’s Four Freedoms or Lincoln’s speeches. Please. What is it about preachers, right and left, that make them put their faith in “the princes of this earth”?

    • I don’t think these preachers were worshiping the princes of the earth. They were simply paying a well deserved compliment to the President. His 2nd inaguration speech compares quite well to Roosevelt’s 4 freedoms and Lincoln’s Gettysburg address. In fact, I believe the President is one of the great orators of our time.
