The Auntie Christ

Bill O’Reilly hosted Robert Jeffress, one of those bug-eyed Jesus-shouters warning us that Obamacare is the sign of the Apocalypse.

There’s going to be a future world dictator, before Christ returns, who’s going to usurp people’s personal …rights. …He’s going to wage war against God’s people, he’s gonna change God’s laws and he’s going to do it without any opposition. And my question was, how’s he going to be able to pull that off? And my thesis is, people will have been conditioned long before the Antichrist comes to accept governmental overreach. And that’s what you’re seeing with President Obama right now.

Is it me, or did I miss it when all of these folks were worried about the rise of Satan when President Bush whooped through Medicare Part D?  Or, for that matter, were we on the road to Perdition when Medicare was passed in 1965?  Having safe roads, clean water, food that doesn’t poison us; those are all harbingers of Evil Incarnate?

I can’t help but wonder if Mr. Jeffress’s opinion of President Obama might somehow be, um, colored.

The true sign that Barack Obama is in league with the devil is that he supports such travesties as a woman’s right to control her own body and for people who love each other to get married without having the government say tut-tut.

“President Obama is without apology the most pro-abortion president in history, but what’s even worse, Bill, is we are being conditioned to accept that government has the right to persecute people of faith,” [Jeffress] said.

[…]

He said that Obama had targeted Christians and other religious people for his support for same-sex marriage, which the pastor said was destroying family life.

I don’t think anyone with any intelligence beyond that of your average eggplant thinks that the president is targeting Christians for persecution, but I wonder if it occurs to these folks that perhaps they’re asking for it by being complete assholes.

    Got it in one…

    “President Obama is without apology the most pro-abortion president in history, but what’s even worse, Bill, is we are being conditioned to accept that government has the right to persecute prevent people of faith from righeously oppressing heathens,” [Jeffress] said.

    Fixt.

    It’s no real surprise that the Founding Fathers were indifferent at best to the caterwauling of specific religious denominations, or that the deliberate non-selection of a state religion was codified into the US’ founding documents. Freedom, to the adherents of many of them, is nothing more than the freedom to impose their own beliefs on the rest of the nation; and the fact that other faiths are similarly inhibited – which protects those loudmouthed adherents as well – is presumed irrelevant to the Speakers for the True and Righteous Majority™.
