A movement to paint Obama as the Antichrist?

By Dan Gilgoff and Eric Marrapodi, CNN Belief Blog Co-Editors

(CNN) - On our sister blog The 1600 Report, CNN's Alex Mooney notes a discrepancy in the official White House transcript of a California fundraiser Monday night, during which a person who heckled President Barack Obama was escorted out by security.

Here's the White House transcript's account of the heckler:

AUDIENCE MEMBER: The Christian God is the only true living God, the Creator of the heavens and the universe.

But Mooney observes that the White House pool report records the heckler as being much more blunt, yelling "'Barack Obama is the Antichrist!"

The president interrupted his remarks at the fundraiser, held at Los Angeles' House of Blues, to respond to the heckler.

"First of all, I agree Jesus Christ is the Lord," Obama said. "I believe in that. I do have a question, though. I think the young man may have left his jacket... "

Ironically, the remark about Obama as the Antichrist came the same day that The New York Times ran an op-ed arguing that the Antichrist is assuming a bigger place in the public discourse, as evangelical Christian ideas about the end times gain traction.

In a piece titled "Why the Antichrist Matters in Politics," Washington State University history professor Matthew Avery Sutton argues that, for some Christians, Obama fits into ideas about the Antichrist, whose arrival is believed to be a portent of the end times and Jesus' second coming:

For some evangelicals, President Obama is troubling. The specious theories about his place of birth, his internationalist tendencies, his measured support for Israel and his Nobel Peace Prize fit their long-held expectations about the Antichrist. So does his commitment to expanding the reach of government in areas like health care.

The op-ed was the most e-mailed piece on nytimes.com for much of Tuesday.

In the 2008 campaign, Republican presidential nominee John McCain released an anti-Obama ad called "The One" that ridiculed Obama for what it said was his messiah complex. Some critics claimed the spot was a veiled attempt to paint Obama as the Antichrist, though the McCain camp denied it.

What do you think? Is there a gathering movement to paint the president as the Antichrist? Are such charges overblown attempt to discredit Obama's critics?

    So Fundamentalist Christians believe Obama is the Anti-Christ.
    The coming to power Anti-Christ is a sign of the end of times.
    Fundamentalist Christians look forward to the end of times as this will bring the rapture and salvation for the faithful.
    So Fundamentalist Cghristians want the end of times.
    So Fundamentalist Christians want the AntiChrist to rise to power.

    So all Right wing fundie nutjobs should logically vote for Obama in 2012.
    Works for me.

    So... I can truly understand if you don't care for our President's policies/politics, etc... But, are you fcking kidding me... that there are actually people that not only believe in the anti-christ non-sense, but... that Obama 'is' the anti-christ...?

    Really... ? Holy sh!t !!! We have a bunch of crazy wing-nuts that believe this malarkey, and can also vote.

    People often ask us agnostics/atheists... why we care about what you evangelical Christians 'believe'...?

    Well, now you know. This is yet 'another sign' about the ending of rational thought and doesn't bode well for the future collective sanity of our society.

      Atheism is a belief in its self. So logically speaking, it takes the same amount of belief to believe in something as to not believe the, "Something" exists. So Atheism is pretty much Stupid. Your belief is "There is no God", that makes a lot of sense. Bottom line my friend, Everyone has to believe in something and not believing doesn't count.

      David, do you also have beliefs about the following:
      There are no mermaids
      There are no leprauchans
      There is no tooth fairy
      There are no unicorns
      There is no Zeus?

      A lack of a belief isn't a belief unless not collecting stamps is a hobby.

      Apparently, you missed the main point of my posting. I wasn't making a case about whether there is or is not a Creator or God, or whatever you want to call it. What I'm talking about are 'some' of the absolutely 'insane' 'beliefs' and the "content" of them.

      Such as this anti-christ nonsense. And... President Obama being the anti-christ. (See Article)

      I guess it seems to fit right into your or those that have this self-sealing prophecy about "end times", yes...?

      Wow ! absolutely nutters. (IMHO).

    The Book of Revelation is best described by the following:

    "Nineteenth-century agnostic Robert G. Ingersoll branded Revelation "the insanest of all books".[30] Thomas Jefferson omitted it along with most of the Biblical canon, from the Jefferson Bible, and wrote that at one time, he "considered it as merely the ravings of a maniac, no more worthy nor capable of explanation than the incoherences of our own nightly dreams." [31]

    Martin Luther "found it an offensive piece of work" and John Calvin "had grave doubts about its value."[32]

    • wow!

      Obama is not the Antichrist. Know your history. The antichrist is not a single person, its a religion. That apostate religion is the religion that killed more Christians than anyother organization in history. It killed people in the name of the cross and it's leader throught history has claimed to even be God. It's the Roman Catholic Church. Revelation 13 and Daniel 2&7 menions a kingdom that would come up after Rome ans blashepeme God, change times ans laws and kills the saints. Roman Catholacism fits all these aspecs. Paul spoke of a man that would sit in the body of Christ claiming to be God."the pope" which means father. Antichrist in this context doesnt mean blantanly against Christ but rather claiming to be in the place of Christ. Revelaition mentions two kingdoms that come out of Rome, in which they spread religion with the sword. These two religions faught in the crusades. The first kingdom has deminished in power which is Roman Catholacism and the next kingdom is Rising which is Islam. This is the last kindgom/ religion before the return of Christ.

    Nothing quite captures the simple mind of the evangelical Christian quite like their belief in Satan and "the Antichrist." While their belief in God, a Bronze Age Palestinean sky-fairy is silly enough, their paranoid delusions about the rapture and the second coming etc. border on mental delusions. I hope they never again have true political power in this country.

    Well I do not know but we have a story of the Dajjal whom you call Anti Christ coming with his big and powerful Donkey...well the Donkey is the emblem of the Democratic party...but those distributions are not enough to accuse the man of being Anti Christ or is he now becoming the "Scapegoat" for the USA now that the threat is over compared to the time he came up calming and promising the world the Change which obviously he failed to achieve for reasons he only knows of...!

    There is not going to be a rapture or a second coming.

    A number of New Testament passages indicate that Christ was supposed to return before his generation had died. This would have been sometime in the first century AD.

    First, there is the testimony of Jesus himself, who explicitly stated that some of his disciples would not die until Jesus inst_ituted the Kingdom, and that his generation would not pass away until all his prophecies of the end of the world had been fulfilled:

    Matthew 16:28 Verily I say unto you, There be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the Son of man coming in his kingdom.

    Matthew 23:36 Verily I say unto you, All these things shall come upon this generation.

    Jesus' speech in 24 and 25 was given, when He was alone with His disciples.

    Matthew 24:34 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.

    Matthew 24:3 And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?

    In this discourse, Jesus makes a number of assertions about the fate of his disciples. One of the signs of the end would be the persecution of his disciples:

    Matthew 24:9 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake.

    While tradition records that the disciples were persecuted and martyred, this was not followed by the return of Christ, as he promised. Would they die for a lie? Apparently... LOL.

    The Apostle Paul, too, seemed to think that Christ would return for his generation:

    I Thessalonians 4:15-17 For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

    Note that Paul twice uses the phrase '...we which are alive and remain...'.

    This seems to preclude the theory that Paul was speaking of some far future generation. Paul made a similar assertion in First Corinthians:

    I Corinthians 15:51,52 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

    Note that Paul said that '...we shall not all sleep...'. In other words, he expected that at least some of his generation would not see death. Again, there is nothing in the text to indicate the Paul was speaking about some far future generation.

    Paul reiterated his belief in a soon return of Christ in the Book of Romans:

    Romans 13:11-12 And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed. The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light.

    The other New Testament writers had similar thoughts about the iminence of Christ's return:

    James 5:8 Be ye also patient; establish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh.

    I John 2:18 Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.

    I Peter 4:7 But the end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer.

    The Apocalyptic Book of Revelations repeatedly has Christ saying that he would return soon:

    Revelation 22:20 He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly....

    By no stretch of the imagination can 2,000 years be considered 'quickly' LOL Jesus is a joke!

    Jesus was wrong. Jesus has been really busy being really dead, for the last 2,000 years.

    Cheers!

      Considering that one day to the Lord is 1,000 years, two or so days is "quickly" to Him. You may misinterpret the Word all you'd like, but it doesn't change the fact that Jesus will return.

      Define Irony: Atheists trying to convert Christians

      What are you trying to convert us to? Do you believe that our souls are in danger? If you want to ignore Jesus, then by all means, enjoy the next life. But if you believe there is no Heaven or Hell, then why do you insist on attempting to discredit scripture? Does this bring you happiness? Or is it that deep down you know that Jesus WILL return and you're afraid of being alone for eternity? I'm sorry, but you won't have my company in that pit. I WILL be dancing on streets of gold. You cannot take that away from any of us. The only thing you will receive is pity because you are lost.

      Mary..how do you know that 1000 years is day to god..who made that up? that mean you are just hours old when you die as far as your god is concerned. Mary.. for the first time in history religion has the ability to do serious damage, if not destroy, society world wide, Given the intolerance each religion has for each other, and the fact each thinks its god is the" real" one and is only accountable to this invisible being the opportunity for violence is very real. How much have our lives have changed because of religion in the last 10 years? travel much ? As an atheist dam right I will speak out with the others and attempt to reason. we do not want pity or prayers we just want you to think. You can really be a great person with out any god.

      Hey Mary, why does the NT trace Jesus' lineage through Joseph when Joseph had nothing to do with the con-ception? Just wondering. Also, if you don't mind, why is Jesus' lineage in Matthew completely different than the lineage in Luke?

      With God a thousand years is as a day. God's ways and thoughts are not our ways. God is not like man, although his intention when he created us is that we be like him. You shouldn't get all worked up just because some right wing idiots make public claims for us christians that not all of us endorse. I'm a christian and I'm getting fed up with Liars speaking for us all. The Bible said over 2450 years ago that the antichrist will come from the northern region of Europe. An area that is refered to by God as "land of the barbaric people" Us white people have always had a problem with prejudism and we have done the wickedest things of all the races on earth. The antichrist will BE A WHITE MAN. Gathering the arabian nations into a 7 nation 10 king alliance with Iran and Iraq being the antichrist's biggest supporters. So this born-agian christian will vote for Obama agian.

      The Joseph that Jesus descended from was the Hebrew that gave counsel to the Pharaoh and interpreted his dream (Genesis 37). Many people don't realize this but the Bible is pretty much a revelation of God and his Son Jesus. I apologize to many of the non believers because many of the views shared about Christianity is based on how we as people fall short. Its funny how our pain and bad experiences can cause us to lash out, what I ask of people that I meet who are non believers is for Grace. Grace to be human, grace to have belief in something that they may not believe in. I agree a big part of being christian is encouraging an understanding to what we feel is the truth, that privilege has been abused and sometimes can be done incorrectly. But I ask from any of you, who's perfect, Cast the first stone. I've been trying to understand many atheist views and I get really emotional when any group attacks my faith but in reality, its not my battle to fight. I apologize for the comments that I posted lashing out, I was wrong, I hope that atheist out there can forgive me. I respect your ability to decide whats best for you. I just hope that you have the same sensitivity towards others right to believe in what they want to as well.

      David, you do not have the right to put forth proven LIES as TRUTH.
      If you want forgiveness, stop saying untrue things and doing evil in the name of your religion.
      Since that is likely to appear impossible to you, just remember I told you how it would work for me to forgive you.
      I give you a clear choice. Stop doing evil and stop spreading lies.
      I will not forgive an enemy while he continually attacks me and seeks my death. Nope.
      That sort of idiotic and morally bereft reasoning I leave to Christians and other hypocrites.
      Lying is wrong. Your religion is a lie. Forgiveness for what you continue to do and then gloat over in public is disgusting.
      You think that anything to do with your religion is good. You could not be more wrong.

      Thank you, David. You are 100% correct. Also, few people realize that the story of Jesus of ripped off from much older religions. The story of a virgin-born, crucified savior was a very common one. But you'll never hear that preached from the pulpit.

    • wow!

      When jesus said that some standing would see him coming in his kingdom, he was talking about his trasfiguration. Which is literally beginning of the next chapter. Although, some prophecies that jesus gave were misunderstood. He was actually talking about the destruction of Jerusalem. Which was the worst time in not just jewish history but also histroy itsef, because of it suddeness and destruction. Jesus will come back , even though first century Christians were expecting him. No one knows the day or the hour so thats why they were expecting him. but, The antichrist is not a single person, its a religion. That apostate religion is the religion that killed more Christians than anyother organization in history. It killed people in the name of the cross and it's leader throught history has claimed to even be God. It's the Roman Catholic Church. Revelation 13 and Daniel 2&7 menions a kingdom that would come up after Rome ans blashepeme God, change times ans laws and kills the saints. Roman Catholacism fits all these aspecs. Paul spoke of a man that would sit in the body of Christ claiming to be God."the pope" which means father. Antichrist in this context doesnt mean blantanly against Christ but rather claiming to be in the place of Christ. Revelaition mentions two kingdoms that come out of Rome, in which they spread religion with the sword. These two religions faught in the crusades. The first kingdom has deminished in power which is Roman Catholacism and the next kingdom is Rising which is Islam. This is the last kindgom/ religion before the return of Christ.
