Texas Pastor Warns Obama Election Has Opened Path For The Rise Of The AntiChrist

Robert Jeffress, senior pastor at the First Baptist Church in Dallas, is back in the news. Jeffress once made headlines in denouncing Mormonism as a cult — he supported Rick Perry. Now, the magachurch pastor has warned his flock that the election of Barack Obama will lead to the rise of the Antichrist. He was careful however not to be too extreme. He noted that he did not believe Obama was the antiChrist because “the Antichrist is going to have much higher poll numbers when he comes.”

Jeffress explained that “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.” The way to stop the antiChrist: you guessed it . . . vote Republican “to push back against this evil that is overtaking our nation.”

What is frightening is not that there are fringe characters like Jeffress spouting off such utter nonsense, but that he has a very large following. This following continues despite the fact that I long ago outted Michael Eisner as the Biblical Beast.

  1. Billy Graham Group, Catholic Bishops Come Under Scrutiny For Blurring Election Lines

    * Tax status saved churches $145 billion over 10 years

    * Complaints filed to U.S. Internal Revenue Service

    * IRS received complaints in 2008 election also

    CHICAGO, Nov 12 (Reuters) – Political watchdog and secularist groups are asking the U.S. government to investigate whether Catholic bishops and a Christian evangelical group headed by preacher Billy Graham should lose tax breaks for telling followers how to vote in this year’s election.

    Under constitutional protections of free speech and separation of church and state, churches are free to speak on any issue. But they risk losing tax breaks worth $145 billion in the past decade if they violate Internal Revenue Service rules by promoting or opposing any particular candidate. Other non-profits also have special tax status.

    Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, a political watchdog group, in its complaint to the U.S. Internal Revenue Service, cited reports of individual bishops “abusing their positions to advocate against the election of President Barack Obama.”

    The group’s executive director, Melanie Sloan, said some bishops went too far by saying a vote for Democrats would mean going to hell. “I don’t think the Catholic bishops should be intimidating parishioners to advocate for any particular candidate,” said Sloan.

    The Wisconsin-based Freedom from Religion Foundation complained to the IRS about possible illegal political campaign intervention by Wisconsin Catholic bishops and the Charlotte, North Carolina-based Billy Graham Evangelistic Association.

    IRS spokesman Dean Patterson declined to comment on the complaints or on whether there was any investigation. “Federal law prohibits the IRS from discussing specific taxpayers or situations,” Patterson said.

  2. “That’s a sign that the “Rise of the Antichrist” is impended for it was silver that Judas betrayed Christ for. Unless of you course you’ve read the Gnostic gospels wherein Jesus asked his friend to betray him.”

    Whereupon, Jesus knowing that his gang of hoodlums were
    well armed, and knowing the jinx was up and not wishing them to go down with him, then asked Judas, his body man, to point him out to the “good cop” as the he would not survive if the bad one got hold of him. Judas
    said, OK JC, but remember that I will have to tell the others I did it for silver, gotta protect my rep, you know. Helping cops is not popular.”

  3. Bron,

    The Passion of the Christ story is archetypal. It shows up lots of places in literature. Even bad literature. Read some Joseph Campbell, particularly “The Hero With a Thousand Faces”.

  4. “The Pastor” knows what to say to his 10K congregation to keep that collection basket full–you gotta know your crowd, right?

    The probable reason for his latest epistle and all that talk of succession is that demographers know that there are enough eligible Hispanic voters in Texas to turn it blue. The problem is getting those non-voting Hispanics to vote. Just a matter of time. Good project for progressive Democrats…

  5. This is such BS. The better half and I absolutely determined that (President) Jimmy Carter was the anti-christ when he was a candidate. Intoxicants were involved. Of course we voted for him.
