Jamie Foxx: Barack Obama, Our Lord and Savior

On Sunday, at the Soul Train Awards on BET, comedian Jamie Foxx raised more than a few eyebrows with his opening statement.

Foxx: First of all, give an honor to God and our lord and savior Barack Obama. Barack Obama.

Some are saying that as a comedian Foxx was simply adding humor to his comments. But many others are taking offense at his comparison of the mere man president to the Lord.

You can watch the video below. Let me know what you think. Is it blasphemy or comedy? A sacrilege or extreme homage to the president? And, in our growing secular society, do comments like this matter?
