I enjoy Religion Clause, because it gives me bite-size news about religion & the government. More often than not, there is an article about the election. But this one just blew me away.
I showed this to my husband, who has no background in Apocalyptic mythology, and he said, “I don’t get it. It doesn’t make any point.” But when I watched it, I was aghast that McCain would so blatantly link Obama with the Antichrist. The fact that a major party’s presumed candidate is so comfortable with such Zionist imagery that he uses it in his campaign videos does not bode well for freedom of religion in this country.
According to Religion Dispatches, the video has been “described by the McCain campaign as merely a light-hearted attempt to show that Obama “gets carried away” when he speaks”, which is interesting since it does not appear that “getting carried away” is a theme in the video or that it could be described as “light hearted”. The battle lines are drawn and if you’re not with us, you’re already in hell.
