Mind you, this is quite a small evil. In fact, some might even applaud Obama for this.
Chuck Norris might be good at beating up the bad guys, but he's also a right-wing loon. He writes a number of angry columns for a range of nutty publications, foaming at the liberal atheistic society America has become.
In this column he claims the US has hit a low because Obama has distanced himself from the Boy Scouts of America.
As I pointed out, the White House has delayed Eagle Scout certificate signings, denied the invitation to go to the Boy Scouts of America's 100th anniversary gala, downplayed Obama's acceptance of BSA's honorary presidency, dodged official communications about the BSA, not defended the BSA against cultural attacks, and diminished Obama's all-around role as BSA's honorary president.Sure, whatever. Obama may have more important things to do than attend Boy Scout events. I believe there are a couple of foreign wars going on.
But the real jaw-dropper is when Norris compares Obama to Pontius Pilate:
Just as Pontius Pilate washed his hands of any buy-in to Jesus' execution, the White House continually is whitewashing its connection and responsibility to the BSA. And just as Pontius Pilate's actions prompted us to question what good came from his position, President Obama has caused us to wonder what good has come from his role as honorary president of BSA.There ought to be a new law of the Internet: an equivalent to Godwin's Law, if you will. People who compare themselves to Jesus, or who compare the trials they or their supporters are undergoing to the trials and tribulations of Jesus.
There may not be a new Internet law, but there sure is a new category in the Hall of Fame: the "Just Like Jesus" Achievement Award.
To be fair, Norris isn't goijg to be the sole recipient of the award. Len Brown gets an award for this. And before him US evangelist George Rekers compared being caught out with a rent-boy to the trials of the Messiah.
Congratulations to all three.
