Crazy Christians: Obama is the antichrist

You have the read the Google cache because the owners of clearly realize how nuts it sounds, but thankfully Pandagon got to it first. In case you're wondering just how nutty a wingnut can be, read this (I can't be bothered to put in all his scare links):

Barack Obama The Antichrist

Did anyone catch this guys speech at the Democratic Convention? This guy bothers me, and here is why. First of all, Barack means blessed. This is from his bio:The lanky candidate speaks with grace, often without notes; strangers greet him enthusiastically on the street.

Even Republicans are complimentary. He exudes confidence and finesse Rep. Ray LaHood of Illinois told USA Today.

And yet, in the middle of reporters' scrums and enthusiastic greetings from strangers, Obama has remained preternaturally calm (exceeding what is natural or regular).

"The rich guy flamed out, and Obama was right there," said Mendell. "He ran a really smart primary campaign. He waited until the ninth inning to score all his runs. ... It was masterfully done. (His running mate Jack Ryan withdrew from the race because of sexual activity claimed by his wife.) He was introduced by longtime Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin of Illinois, who referred to Obama as a man who can help heal the division in our nation.

This guy just sounds to perfect to me. He came on the scene vertually unheard of except in Illinois. I looked at the polls this morning, and Burack Obama had more of a percentage rate then anyone giving speeches at the Democratic Convention...INCLUDING KERRY!!!

He continues in another post:

Yes, it is uncanny the way that people are flocking to him. He has an eerie magnetism. I watched his speech, and I was almost spellbound. He said ALL of the right things. Even the tv commentators said that they had never heard such a good speech at a convention before. I'm going with my gut on this one. My sister and I both feel something "spooky" about this guy, but can't quite figure out what it is. It is odd that strangers come up to him on the street. Why would they do that, unless they were drawn to him.
You are right GodSaves, we are supposed to watch, and those that do not, aren't very bright to say the least. Jesus didn't give us His word with all of the information in it for no apparent reason.

The good news is that there were quite a few posters like this:

It's a shame when a Christian becomes "bothered" just because a man's name means "blessed", speaks well, and is popular within the political community. Come on, Grace; can't a guy give a good speech without somebody in the Christian world becoming "bothered" due to some dubious eschatological fear?

This thread is really ridiculous.

I grew up with people who were obsessed by "dubious escahtological fears" and any view into their brains is like jumping through Alice's looking glass. The bad news here is that these are precisely the people Karl Rove believes Bush has to cater to. And boy do they love Dick Cheney. Hmmm... Keeps coming back to life after heart attacks, has a mechanical device in his chest that is definitely NOT mentioned in the Bible, and his offspring is an evil lesbian. If American politics has really devolved into a game of "spot the Antichrist," Cheney gets my vote. Any other nominations?

While I don't think he qualifies as THE Antichrist, John Ashcroft is definitely a handmaiden of Satan!
