Academy Award winning actor Jamie Foxx has called Barack Obama “our lord and savior” during the 2012 Soul Train Awards in Las Vegas on Sunday, drawing the attention of Catholic League President Bill Donohue.
“It’s like church over here. It’s like church in here. First of all, give an honor to God and our Lord and Savior Barack Obama. Barack Obama,” Foxx said to a cheering audience on Sunday night. The rapper, comedian and actor who stars in the “Django Unchained” movie written and directed by Quentin Tarantino, was warming up the fans in preparation for the evening’s music awards.
Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights President Bill Donohue, who has been vocal in protesting against some of President Obama’s biggest policies, such as the HHS mandate, released a statement commenting on Foxx’s reference to Obama as “lord and savior,” calling it “startling.”
Donohue wrote: “It just goes to show that even though Obama did not succeed in stopping the oceans from rising (as he promised to do in 2008), he did succeed in convincing Jamie Foxx, and no doubt legions of others, that God exists.
