millenarianism, or just politics absorbing religion?

If Obama were the Anti-Christ, wouldn't Christians want him to be elected, since that would prove that the End Times were upon us and God's Justice finally made manifest on earth, complete with the Rapture and eternal bliss for all true Christians?

For that matter, if Obama were the Anti-Christ, wouldn't it be futile to try to prevent him from rising to power, since it is prophesied in the Bible, which is supposed to be inerrant?

And while we're at it, if Obama loses, that would be pretty definitive proof that he is not, in fact, the Anti-Christ. Are any of these so-called "Christians" prepared to apologize for spreading such a scurrilous rumor about a man who clearly did not deserve it?

dude, don't try to inject rationality and reason into a political/religious argument.

You should know better than that.
