Election results: And the winner is…

by Carl Frederik Waage Beck on juni 8, 2009

The results are in, and the winner of Saviour 2009 is…….. (drumroll) Barack Obama!!!
Below is a detailed view of the votes:

When I initially started thinking about the idea of making an election as part of the exhibition in Brorsons church, I had no idea that reality would catch up and highlight the importance of personal responsibility.
As the votes where being cast on this site and by many on May 28th at the reception in Brorsons, 60 Iraqi refugees where sheltering in the crypt and in the organ loft of the church.

Their presence reminds us all that even though we can elect leaders to guide us through the rough patches, we still all have an obligation to “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you”.

These words where repeated by Obama last thursday in Cairo. Maybe this is why so many voted for him.
Take the time to watch the whole speech. The words are spoken at 52:10.

Best regards, Carl
