NEW YORK, Nov. 26, 2012 /Christian Newswire/ -- Bill Donohue (photo) released the following remarks today:
Thanks to Noel Sheppard at Newsbusters [click here], we learned today of the comments that aired last night on BET by Jamie Foxx at the previously recorded Soul Train Awards. Foxx greeted the crowd by saying, "First of all, give an honor to God and our Lord and Savior Barack Obama, Barack Obama."
A YouTube video posted on December 21, 2011 [click here] shows Foxx being asked, "What does God mean to you?" His response, "What does God mean to me? I don't know."
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.
