In an earlier post, ‘Satin Rules’ I poked a little fun at believers and blasphemers who skipped English class– and have trouble getting their message across.
But I went to a Pentecostal church for three years and I knew as soon as I heard it– those who believe that President Obama is the
Anti-Chist Anti-Christ will be percolating and prophesying and jumping up and down like popcorn.
Their reasoning is convoluted, and exhausting to explain, but the condensed version is this– if Obama does badly and fails it’s ‘cause he’s evil. If he succeeds, especially in areas of peace and social justice, that’s further proof that he’s evil– just cleverly hiding his evil agenda.
It’s kind of like a coin toss– heads I win, tails you lose.
It gives me a headache trying to explain it, so I’ll link to Meg White at Buzzflash blog, who had the patience to unravel the ball of wool that passes for thinking among the believers.
