No Antichrist Here

Left Behind authors verify that, in their opinion, Barack Obama is not the anti-christ. Certainly good to know:

LaHaye and Jenkins take a literal interpretation of prophecies found in the Book of Revelation. They believe the antichrist will surface on the world stage at some point, but neither see Obama in that role. “I’ve gotten a lot of questions the last few weeks asking if Obama is the antichrist,” says novelist Jenkins. “I tell everyone that I don’t think the antichrist will come out of politics, especially American politics.”

Of course this should have been obvious since everyone knows that Left Behind‘s anti-christ is Romanian. When you start hearing talk about change you can believe in coming from Bucharest, that’s when we’ll know that the apocalypse is nigh.
