Took a break from all things pre-teen camp to check out the news and came across this startling quote from Jacques Boudon, owner of La Fontaine de Mars, a bistro in France. (Check out entire article here: “France gets its Obama moment.”)
Mr. Boudon was clearly delighted that President Obama and his wife had chosen his restaurant for their private meal during their time in Europe. Or, perhaps “delighted” isn’t a strong enough word. What was it Mr. Boudon said, Mr. Associated Press?
“I saw God before me,” he said, “because I saw this smile that a million people have seen around the world. I saw her (Michelle) radiant. … It’s idiotic, but it’s like that.”
Hmmm. I do not fault the President for the feelings and sentiment of others, as that would be unfair. Mr. Boudon’s shameful blasphemy is his own burden to bear, and the end of this age will certainly be full of its fair share of Jacques Boudons (2 Tim. 3:1-2). However, for his own sake I do hope that the President has read Acts 12:20-24 and knows to respond to such “praise” accordingly.
