More Antichrist Allegations...

I can pretend to be outraged, as a Christian, a Democrat, and an Obama supporter...


... but I grew up in Fundamentalist-Americhristianity. I get it: this new ad from Mcain at attempts to position Barack Obama as the Antichrist. Frankly, if I was still a Republican and card-carrying member of the Christian Coalition (don't be too hard on me, I was still in high school) I would do exactly what McCain is doing - and I would have started earlier.

The machine of pop-End-Times-Dispensationalism as characterized (and monetized) by Tim Lahaye and Jerry Jenkins has identified good fruits (peace, hope, love, unity) as suspect symbols of evil based on a narrow and uninformed translation of Revelation.

No matter a Gospel that declares: "Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Thus, by their fruit you will recognize them." Matthew 17:19-20

A Christianity that distrusts good fruit is no Christianity at all.

At least they may leave Bono alone for awhile...
