Pastor to Obama: 'May the force be with you'

Good golly! This is much worse than Chief Justice Roberts flubbing the oath. While Obama was at church just before the inauguaration, Bishop T. D. Jakes told Obama,

“The problems are mighty and the solutions are not simple,” Jakes said, “and everywhere you turn there will be a critic waiting to attack every decision that you make. But you are all fired up, Sir, and you are ready to go. And this nation goes with you. God goes with you.

“I say to you as my son who is here today, my 14-year-old son – he probably would not quote scripture. He probably would use Star Trek instead, and so I say, ‘May the force be with you.

Star Trek? Star Trek?!? It's Star WARS. Star WARS. Don't they teach anything in the seminary anymore?
Flashback: This insolence is not limited to the clergy. Recall that a few months ago, one of the world's top scientists at the Large Hadron Collider made a similar transgression.
