I received an alarming e-mail on Monday morning entitled “Choose wisely my friends!!!” It included a startling revelation – that Obama is…the Anti-Christ! That’s right folks, right here in River City, Satan with a capital “S”:
According to The Book of Revelations:
The Anti-Christ will be a man, in his 40’s, of MUSLIM descent, who will
deceive the nations with persuasive 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, he will destroy everything.
My first thought was, dude, if Obama is the Anti-Christ, we got bigger things to worry about than the election. Because according to that movie “The Omen”, things are figgin’ to get bad – REAL bad. When the Anti-Christ shows up on earth, whoa, look out. There’ll be fire raining down, everyone will have 666 tattooed on their forehead, and “American Idol” will be cancelled – forever!
And what are we going to do with “Obama the Anti-Christ” after the election? Even if he isn’t elected president, he’s still a Senator. Then we’ll be stuck with the Anti-Christ sitting in the U.S. Senate – on the Foreign Relations Committee, no less! Wait a minute, I thought the Anti-Christ was already on the Foreign Relations Committee? Oh, I guess that’s just Dick Lugar. My bad.
Luckily, one of the e-mail recipients replied with a powerful bit of information – that the Book of Revelation (that’s one Revelation, not “Revelation-S”) was written 400 years before Islam was a religion. And that there is not one single reference to the Anti-Christ in it, nor does it contain any description of the Anti-Christ.
The author then continued:
For the award winning Act of Stupidity Of all times the People of
America want to elect, to the most Powerful position on the face of the
Planet — The Presidency of the United states of America … A Male of
Muslim descent who is the most extremely liberal Senator in Congress
(in other words an extremist) and in his 40’s. (emphasis mine)
Hmmm, so being “extremely liberal” makes you an “extremist”? Then what does being “extremely conservative” make you? Well…an “extremist”, right? It goes both ways, doesn’t it?
The author closed with this:
Have the American People completely lost their Minds, or just their
Power of Reason ???
Peace in Christ,
Mary Alice Cantrell
Well, Mary Alice, I have to say, that last question is definitely a valid one. In fact, as I was reading your e-mail, I was asking myself the very same thing. And let me tell you, it’s a tough call. But I have to believe, “Peace-in-Christ” Mary, that you are not representative of the majority of Americans. The majority of Americans have lost neither their minds nor their power to reason, and can see straight through this ridiculous tripe.
