Flaming-batshit insanity of the week

Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins -- the authors of that definitive modern eschatological text, the novel series Left Buttock or whatever it's called -- have concluded that Barack Obama isn't the Antichrist after all:

"I can see by the language he uses why people think he could be the antichrist," adds LaHaye, "but from my reading of scripture, he doesn't meet the criteria. There is no indication in the Bible that the antichrist will be an American."

Glad that's been cleared up.

This is why people think all Christians are idiots.

Thank you for the link. :) Someone Left Behind one of those "Left Behind" books in the Laundromat, once. I picked it up & thumbed through it. The thing that struck me most was how badly written it was. Besides the fact that it's drivel, it's poorly written drivel.

ranch chimp, That's right. Obama has been saying all along he's a christian. But, these backwards people are ignorant enough & arrogant enough to think they can define christianity on their own narrow terms. On one hand it's laughable, on the other it's frightening.

Well, I for one, was really worried about the Obama-antichrist thing. I'm grateful to LaHaye and Jenkins for straightening out that mess. I'll sleep much easier tonight.
