Messiah on Donkey - Obama style

An artist sculpture portrays Obama riding into the Iowa Capital riding in on a donkey complete with palm fronds and Secret Service.

We all know that our Lord Jesus entered Jerusalem on a donkey.

Artist have the freedom to create as they choose.

... but this conception tweeks me. I have only ONE MESSIAH - JESUS CHRIST

Obama's triumphal entry: gentle, riding on donkey
Artist creates messianic parade as 'adorers' wave palm fronds

DES MOINES, Iowa – Amid the pomp, circumstance and celebration of welcoming a new president, an artist in Iowa created an inaugural parade sure to draw attention, even hundreds of miles from Washington, D.C.: Barack Obama, riding on a donkey, complete with waving palm fronds and "Secret Service" escort.

As WND reported, Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan declared in October that when Obama talks, "the Messiah is absolutely speaking." But artist Matthew J. Clark's parade – marching Obama through the streets of Des Moines in similar fashion to Jesus' triumphal entry into Jerusalem – takes the messianic imagery even farther.

The Bible describes Jesus' procession into Jerusalem in the 21st chapter of Matthew as the fulfillment of the prophet Zechariah's words, "Behold, thy King cometh unto thee: he is just, and having salvation; lowly, and riding upon an ass," or as the New International Version paraphrases, "gentle, and riding on a donkey." As the celebrated Messiah entered the city, the Bible also tells of adorers spreading their cloaks at Jesus' feet and waving palm fronds.
