Don't you get tired of far-right conservative religious leaders always going on about Barack Obama is the Antichrist this and Barack Obama is the Antichrist that? It can get really repetitive and tiresome, don't you think?
Well, Texas megachurch pastor Robert Jeffress agrees with you. As a matter of fact, he has a very different message for his congregation…
"I want you to hear me tonight, I am not saying that President Obama is the Antichrist, I am not saying that at all. One reason I know he's not the Antichrist is the Antichrist is going to have much higher poll numbers when he comes," said Jeffress.
"President Obama is not the Antichrist. But what I am saying is this: the course he is choosing to lead our nation is paving the way for the future reign of the Antichrist."
You see! Obama's not the One Who Shall Bring About the End of Times. He's simply the guy who's bringing in the One Who Shall Bring About the End of Times. A sort of Barack the Baptist, if you will.
Such a breath of fresh air, to hear reasonable people talking sense for once.
