The Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights in the United States has responded to Jamie Foxx referring to President Barack Obama as "our Lord and Savior" on Sunday at the 2012 Soul Train Awards.
"It’s like church over here. It’s like church in here. First of all, give an honor to God and our Lord and Savior Barack Obama. Barack Obama," Foxx said, reports The Washington Post.
The award show aired Sunday night but was taped a few days after the 2012 election in Las Vegas, reports E! News.
Now The Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights in the United States has released a statement regarding Foxx's comments.
"Foxx's epiphany is startling. It just goes to show that even though Obama did not succeed in stopping the oceans from rising (as he promised to do in 2008), he did succeed in convincing Jamie Foxx, and no doubt legions of others, that God exists. Whether God can survive an ACLU lawsuit accusing him of violating church and state grounds remains to be seen," Bill Donahue, the president of the group, said.
Foxx's representative wasn't available to comment on the situation, according to E! News.
Foxx is scheduled to host Saturday Night Live on December 8.
