Obama 'appointed by God'

Obama was “appointed by God”, we are instructed by a man boasting academic credentials.

Writing in the Orlando Sentinel, Jeremy Levitt, “associate dean for International Programs and a distinguished professor of international law at Florida A&M University College of Law in Orlando,” makes this case at the conclusion of a rambling attack on critics of ObamaCare and the right in general:
I would remind the far right what the Apostle Paul wrote, " ... there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God." Hence, Obama is the U.S. president and leader of the Free World because he was appointed by God.
I wonder how much criticism this statement will encounter on the left, from the militant atheists and church-haters?

How many Obama supporters actually believe this “distinguished professor”?
