Strange: Pastor calls Obama 'unique and important manifestation of God’s desire' in book

Media

From the Amazon description of the book The Gospel of Barack Hussein Obama According to Mark:

"The Gospel of Barack Hussein Obama According to Mark" is designed to initiate the reader into a meditation on what it means to be human, what it means to be a manifestation of God, and how Barack Obama is a unique and important manifestation of God’s desire for human flourishing. In a blend of words from his public speeches, imagined conversation, and fictional situations, the book highlights Obama’s real stance on social justice and, in particular, economic and political empowerment.

Imagined conversation?! Somebody get Bellevue on the line. Right. Now.

The book, written by New York Pastor Mark F. Bozzuti-Jones, was published in March and has three and a half out of five stars on Amazon. On the website for his church Trinity Wall Street, Bozzuti-Jones describes the "kind of questions" he "typically answer[s]." They include: "What is the difference among an Episcopalian, an elephant and an eagle? I am experiencing the dark night of the soul what should I do?"

Who's asking him these things?!

Of the five Amazon customer reviews, here's my favorite, submitted by Yvette: "This book defies classification; it is a potpourri of poetry, allegory, metaphor, narrative all presented in an awesome spiritual kaleidoscope."

The book sells for $20, which means I'm sadly not eligible for free super saver shipping.
