Doesn’t Barack Obama have enough flaws without making up bizarre fictions about him? The AP reports that a Denver police officer sent out an e-mail claiming that a presidential candidate — guess who — may be a harbinger of the End of Days. The e-mail stated that the “Anti-Christ will be a man, in his 40’s, of Muslim descent.”
Here is a comparable message collected by Snopes:
According to the Book of Revelations the anti-christ is: The anti-christ will be a man, in his 40s, of MUSLIM descent, who will deceive the nations with persuassive language, and have a MASSIVE Christ-like appeal…. the prophecy says that people will flock to him and he will promise false hope and world peace, and when he is in power, will destory everything. Is it OBAMA??
Inquiring minds want to know.
Beyond the fact that Revelation says no such thing about any antichrist, Snopes points out that “since the book of Revelation was complete by the end of the second century, but the religion of Islam wasn’t founded until about four hundred years later, the notion that Revelation would have mentioned a ‘Muslim’ at all is rather far-fetched.”
But people can read into these works basically whatever they want.
Obama’s political problem is not that he is opposed to Christ, but that he seeks weaken the wall between church and state through faith-based welfare and “brotherly love” (meaning federal controls). Obama doesn’t need to be the antichrist to royally screw up the U.S. economy, as I fear he’ll do.
We need to worry about the real Christians and their political controls (in addition to the left’s political controls), not some fantasy antichrist.

>Is it OBAMA??
I think that says it all (I’m referring to the two question marks at the end). I’m going to take them at their word, and accept the fact that they *don’t know*. Sorry, crazy DPD emailer, questions are not a form of knowledge.
Now, if someone were to see a potato chip in the shape of Obama’s head, well, I’d want them to email me about that. That could mean the End Of Days.
Of course, all of this raises the question of how you predict the behavior of someone (Obama) who lacks principles? I think he’s capable of doing anything altruistic and populist he can get away with doing. There are really few principled limits on his behavior. Honestly I haven’t seen any limits at all, he’s sort of a black box — no pun intended.
Unfortunately, by pointing out that you don’t intend a pun, you draw attention to the fact that you thought of intending one.
I don’t see it as unfortunate; I see it as clarifying. If it occurred to me, it may occur to others, and I didn’t want it to be interpreted as a pun. It is not. I use that phrase a lot and think it describes inscrutability perfectly.
My girlfriend received an e-mail about Obama being the Antichrist some weeks back, from someone she knew; apparently the meme is going around. What I said was, “Now wait a minute! The appearance of the Antichrist is predicted in the Revelation of St. John; supposedly it’s part of the events that lead up to the Last Judgment. So if Obama is the Antichrist, doesn’t that mean that voting against him is trying to thwart God’s plan?”
But considering the nature of the message, I was probably being much too logical.
