Reductio Ad Antichristum

posted on November 14, 2012

“I want you to hear me tonight, I am not saying that President Obama is the Antichrist, I am not saying that at all. One reason I know he’s not the Antichrist is the Antichrist is going to have much higher poll numbers when he comes,” said Robert Jeffress, to First Baptist Church, a large church in Dallas. Rod Dreher of The American Conservative believes that politically charged statements such as this, “make it so easy for young people to consider church nothing more than the Republican Party at prayer. Because that’s what you do when you give a sermon saying that people who vote for the Democratic presidential candidate are casting their lot with Satan.”
