To be or not to be messianic

If you’ve received spam emails claiming that Barack Obama is the anti-Christ, have no fear, Louis Farrakhan shoots that notion down.

This appears to be part of the Farrakhan’s speech at the Nation of Islam Savior’s day, earlier this year in February. (Thanks to

Then again, Barack thoroughly rejected Farrakhan’s endorsement in March.

I’ll have to check up on eschatology again to see if the anti-Christ would reject being referred to in such messianic ways.

Perhaps Louis got confused when in January Barack Obama said:

That's his job, get you to the polls, vote for Obama. My job is to help him do his job. So I am going to try to be so persuasive in the 20 minutes or so that I speak that by the time this is over, a light will shine down from somewhere.

It will light upon you. You will experience an epiphany. And you will say to yourself, I have to vote for Barack. I have to do it.

Maybe Barack was just being silly and the consistently silly Louis Farrakhan missed out on the humor Obama intended.

That would be more plausible if Barack Obama hadn’t said the following this past June.

this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal

A note to those who broke their sarcasm detector, yes, this post is sarcastic. I do not believe that Barack Obama is the anti-Christ, although it does appear that he has a level of narcissism that would be natural to one who is.
