Book of Mormonisms

Did they really say THAT?

Is Obama the Anti-Christ?

Posted by skiutah on Wednesday, September 30, 2009

Below is an interesting youtube video on how 1/3 of NJ christian evangelicals believe that Obama is the anti-christ. This reminds me of growing up in rural southern Utah, where the same mindset exists with large portions of the LDS population, some examples:

– I had a seminary teacher whose (large) family lived in a truck camper because he thought at any moment the LDS brethren would give the order for Mormons to move to Missouri
– Another seminary teacher would regularly diagram on the chalk board how the final war would be started, where the various armies would meet, and so on.
– World bad news was viewed as good news (the end of times was always right around the corner)
– Similarly (oddly), good news was viewed as bad news
– Mormon neighbors who had underground cement bunkers stocked with ammo, food, iodine tablets, and so on
– Mormon leaders stating it was the last hour, the 59th minute, the last second of time before Christ was coming (every generation has been told this for the last 180 years)
