When your father posts this bon mot on Facebook....

"Obama? 2 Thessalonians 2:1-12?"

My response:
"Dad, really? This could apply to any charismatic leader in time. And has been."

I'm just going to take a shower, drink some hot tea, and we'll have a nice conversation in a few days like this didn't even happen.

The hell does that even have to do with Obama?

Honestly, I'm thinking it's an "Obama may be the anti-Christ" thing. Seriously.

Crazy. I'm not even seeing how he's getting from Point A to Point B...

Here's what he responded: "True, but I can't think of one charismatic US President that was not a Christian, and was not really proud to be an American. You and I will not see eye to eye on this one sweetheart. One of us may be right, one may be wrong, or both right and both wrong. Love, Dad."

He's drunk the Kool-Aid.

"Dad, you are, of course, entitled to your own informed opinion. But you are not entitled to your own facts. There is simply no evidence that Obama is not a Christian (even though it shouldn't be relevant) nor that he is not proud to be an American. This is our legally elected President. Why do you hate America?"

Yeah, sad to see how many people have.

...And I still don't see how he gets from there to the bible verse...

I had no idea I knew that many hard core republicans until I got on facebook. They clearly didn't know they knew any liberals, or dems or non-radical people at all. I'm cakeorama (Shawn Taylor) there too, or the address part is. Join the madness!

I just sent you a request. I'm Heather Sorensen from Roswell GA. You'll be able to see the headache through the Internet.

Oh yeah, Facebook has a lot of people willing to throw out their political views just to prove They're Right and You're Not.

Heather: Damn, talk about a leap of logic.
