Is Michelle Obama From Babylon, NY? If So . . .

I suppose this kind of nuttiness was inevitable.
America has never faced so many different crises at the same time in living memory. The war with al-Qaida and Islamic terror, the Iran crisis, Afghanistan, nuclear proliferation, the rising price of oil, the falling dollar, enemy acronyms like OPEC, NAM, OIC, U.N. ... Obama is correct in saying that the world is ready for someone like him – a messiah-like figure, charismatic and glib and seemingly holding all the answers to all the world's questions.

And the Bible says that such a leader will soon make his appearance on the scene. It won't be Barack Obama, but Obama's world tour provided a foretaste of the reception he can expect to receive.

He will probably also stand in some European capital, addressing the people of the world and telling them that he is the one that they have been waiting for. And he can expect as wildly enthusiastic a greeting as Obama got in Berlin.

The Bible calls that leader the Antichrist. And it seems apparent that the world is now ready to make his acquaintance.

Thus Hal Lindsay of The Late Great Planet Earth fame.

Please note how careful Lindsay is here. He quite clearly says Obama is not the anti-Christ. Yet, he is walking like that particular duck, quacking like that particular duck, so we are left to ponder, if not Obama, then who?

If every person fingered as the anti-Christ by these dispensationalist whackos were indeed the child of Satan come to Earth, we would be facing an army of them, from Napoleon through Kaiser Wilhelm II, to Woodrow Wilson, Josef Stalin, Hitler (obviously) to Saddam Hussein. Seeing as all these previous A/C's are all dead, I suppose that does leave the field open for Obama - putting his mark on us, making war on the saints, and all that.

When "defenders" of "Christian values" write garbage like this, I do believe any pretense that these people have any clue what it means to really follow Jesus should just be set aside. We can laugh at them and their murderous fantasies, their near-schizophrenic howling at the way liberals want to kill us all and make us all gay at the same time. But "Christian"?
