Whom shall we worship?

Bookworm writes,
The Left has happily worshiped at Obama’s altar, complete with demons (white men, conservatives, conservatives minorities who wandered off the plantation, etc.) and angels (the LGBT crowd, women en masse, docile minorities, BLM, etc.). No wonder that his departure leaves them so shattered. It’s as if Zeus were to announce to Romans his coming retreat from Mt. Olympus. There is no place in this Obama-centered faith for actual people, the ones who refuse labels, who work hard, who believe in America and its values — most especially a belief that we are all created in God’s image and come equipped with certain inalienable rights.

...Normally a new president has someone backing him up, someone publicly behind him. Mr. Obama had the mainstream media—the big broadcast networks, big newspapers, activists and intellectuals, pundits and columnists of the left—the whole shebang. He had a unified, passionate party. Mr. Trump in comparison has almost nothing. The mainstream legacy media oppose him, even hate him, and will not let up. The columnists, thinkers and magazines of the right were mostly NeverTrump; some came reluctantly to support him. His party is split or splitting. The new president has gradations of sympathy, respect or support from exactly one cable news channel, and some websites.

He really has no one but those who voted for him.

Put another way, Trump is a man, not a God. Thankfully, his supporters do not worship him. Instead, they recognize that he is, and knows he is, a man among men — decidedly imperfect, but striving, and determined to serve his fellow man. What a refreshing change from the President who would be God. And what a perfect form of leadership for a nation that, at the end of the day, still functions within the Judeo-Christian tradition.
