WWJD? Rick Perry, Antichrist

Jump to Comments

Republicon governor Rick Perry has declared a public day of prayer and is organizing a major national public prayer event, using the typical language of the 17th-century jeremiad: America in crisis . . . facing doom . . . must act now . . .

But what would Jesus do? Fortunately, we know without any biblical ambiguity, the ipsissima vox of the Son of God, the Second Person of the Holy Trinity, the King of Kings and Lord of Lords, the Messiah, whose Second Coming in glory Christians eagerly await:

5And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward. 6But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly. (Matthew 6: 5-6 [KJV])

According to Dallas News reporter Wayne Slater:

Video clips of the event’s sponsors and official endorsers cover the waterfront — claims that the Statue of Liberty is a “demonic idol,” that Oprah is the precursor of the Antichrist, that Hitler was God’s plan to get the Jews to go to Israel and that the decline in the Japanese stock market was the result of the Emperor having sex with the sun goddess. Perry has dismissed questions about the religious views of his prayer partners, saying the focus ought to be on the day of prayer and fasting, not the sponsors.

This stuff makes Glen Beck look like an Enlightenment philosophe.
