Obama is not an idiot. This guys actions are shaky and suspect at best, at worst he is guilty of fraud. Obama is not going to take sides, when you live in Ukraine you need to obey and put up with the system or it is time to go.

Embassy of God Church. Is a cult, Ukraine has it's own Historical-cultural churches, which surely have to be reformed a bit. However the creation of sects and cults should be seized. Take your arm waving, body shaking, talk of Armageddon to America. Ukraine sadly opened up itself, and the people who were so depraved of rational thought and religious practices of the Soviet-Union, are so easily brain-washed into bogus sects. For once, i would say we should do what Russia has, and ban such establishments!

So Obama now has the role of playing GOD in influencing/interfering in justice in another country. Is the US president judge jury and executioner for the world? I thought he was elected as head of state fr the US not the world or United Nations. Obama should most certainly not interfere. At least not until this matter has been brought to trial and the evidence produced.

In the mean time the sect leaders should start praying to God not Obama, in the end it is God who will judge them for their deeds..
