Barbara Walters confessed to Piers Morgan that she had thought that Barack Obama was the next messiah, transcript via Newbusters :
Well, you’ve touched on it to a degree. He made so many promises. We thought that he was going to be – I shouldn’t say this at Christmastime, but – the next messiah.
So I ask but one simple question. What religion is Barbara Walters?
She clearly can not be Christian. The Christian’s believe their messiah arrived some two thousand years ago and died on the cross to absolve believers of their sins.
Likewise, Muslims already have their prophet.
The Jewish don’t profess to have a messiah, or least a messiah named Barrack Obama.
Buddhists don’t have a deity.
Atheists don’t have a god,
Agnostics, including yours truly, believe the existence, or non-existence, of a deity can neither be proven or dis-proven.
Barbara Walters has seen her god and his name was Barrack Obama.
Aside, I thought messiah demonstrated their exulted status by performing miracles. Obama only promised miracles, but has never delivered any. For example, a true messiah would not have tax the young and healthy to provides health care. He could just provide it by waving his arms. Evidently, Walters has a rather low standards for her messiahs.
