Not Right About Anything brings us news from the religious right (WorldNetDaily, the same folks who brought us the Birther's idiocy) that claim Jesus may very well have given us a clue as to who the Antichrist might be.

Be sure you are sitting down for this one, kids.

Satan: Your name is Baraq Bama!

That means Barack Obama is the Son of Perdition, the Lawless One, The Beast, TThe Enemy, The Adversary, The Assyrian, The Spoiler, The Nail, The Little Horn, The Profane and Wicked Prince of Israel, The Idol Shepherd.

For the love of all that is holy and good, what have we done!

I tried several times to write a synopsis of the argument, but I just couldn't manage it. Something about taking the words of Jesus (Aramaic) and translating them to Greek and then to Hebrew and voila, we might possibly be able to label Barack Obama as the possible Antichrist. They claim the facts are indisputable. It's just such silly drivel. You will just have to watch the video yourself.

Anyway, these folks are providing some kind of serious argument (wrapped in the most ridiculous pseudo-scholarship) that our president may indeed be the Antichrist.

This is what people are spending their time on? What about the economy, the on-going war, health care, poverty, civil rights, or any other host of serious issues facing our country and religion? Can't we focus our time on that?

It's just a matter of time before someone from our area claims this truth from Jesus' mouth on the Springfield News-Leader opinion page, and the letter will get published as legitamite discourse to enhance the civic engagement in the public domain. Perhaps it will be an "Our Voice". I can't wait.

I'll tell you what is indisputable: This was created and supported by persons who call themselves Christians. So much for scholarship.

Judas Priest!
