Obama ranks First, Jesus Christ Second in Harris Poll of American Heroes

Article here

Another, here.

Obama ahead of God in Human form (as Christians believe)!shocked_yellowshocked_yellow

Then Martin Luther King Jr., Ronald Reagan, and George W. Bush.:)


The fact that President Obama is mentioned more often than Jesus Christ should not be misinterpreted. No list was used and nobody was asked to choose between them.

It is noteworthy that the top ten include six dead heroes (including Jesus Christ and Martin Luther King) and four live ones.

The top 10 list includes five presidents. The top 20 includes eight.

Hillary Clinton, now Secretary of State, ranks higher on the list (#12) than her husband President Bill Clinton (#16).

Hey! Jesus died, but came to life again--He's not dead!;)

Jesus wasn't American, and as he had a unique human/divine status according to some surely he shouldn't be on the list at all. All the rest you listed are/were Americans in the public eye.

Is it not a little early to be calling Obama a hero? To qualify as a hero in my eyes a person should personally do something to qualify for that title. Yes it is truly a great thing to be the first person of color to be elected President, however he did not do that on his own. He had a whole cadre of advisers and fund raisers who helped him to achieve that milestone.

On the other hand, Sully had little help in landing that plane in the Hudson. Maybe down the road as things play out Obama might be a hero but lets wait and see. Last year Bernie Madoff was a great guy, today he is confined to his apartment, so lets temper our rush to judgement.waveysmiley
