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.
