Jamie Foxx is starting a new religion… Obamaisum!
Last night BET aired the Soul Train Awards, which opened with the actor telling the audience:
"First of all, give an honor to God and our Lord and Savior Barack Obama. Barack Obama."
Of course, someone got mad.
Bill Donahue, the president of the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights in the United States, did NOT find Jamie's comment amusing.
Donahue express his distain in a statement, saying:
"Foxx's epiphany is startling. 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. Whether God can survive an ACLU lawsuit accusing him of violating church and state grounds remains to be seen."
We think it's less of an act of epiphany, and more of an act of comedy. Ya know, cuz Jamie is a COMIC! Still, we all have a right to our own opinion.
Press PLAY (above) to see Jamie give praise to Lord Obama (above)!
