I go to church sometimes but I am not as religious as I would like to be. My niece is convinced that Obama is the anti christ. She quoted from the Bible different things about how people would act and how the anti christ would fool people….scary! I am not convinced ,but it is kind of strange how people are screaming at his rallies .. screaming they love him is kinda different! What do you all think? Could he be?????
The thing is: this idea isn’t all that uncommon. Do a google search on Obama + antichrist, and you’ll come up with 191,000 hits. Much of this seems to be based off of the fact that Obama is a good public speaker, religious (but not part of the religious-right), and they don’t like him. (Read: the antichrist is tricky – he knows how to use religious language to seduce people into voting for liberals.) Obviously, we need another George W. Bush – based on his fumbling of the English language, there’s no way he’s an evil antichrist-level mastermind.
Kinda stupid that voting in this country is disrupted by the avoidance of prophecies that aren’t going to come true. Additionally, fundamentalists never seem to recognize the fact that Christians of every century saw their world colored by the book of revelations, and ignorantly named the antichrist over and over. But, who needs an informed democracy?
