“I think that you should hear what my opinion about the Obama election is: that he will not be the next president. I said on my home page in August that if he lost to expect to see the ‘riots’ that 2 Peter 2:13 tells us about. He didn’t lose. But the story is not finished yet. I still think they may begin the riots before Christmas 2008, as I said.”
Parowan Prophet — on Obama (2008)
‘I”ve never lived through an explosion,’ Freeborn said. ‘But I”ve stood in the fire [in a vision], I”ve smelled the smoke, I”ve felt the blast and the wind. God has realistic videos that are fantastic.’
Freeborn”s visions get grimmer.
‘One million will die between Brigham City and St. George,’ he said. ‘If you live beyond 10 miles of Hill Air Force Base don”t let the sun go down without a full tank of gas.’ He suggested going there because Cache Valley won”t suffer as much damage as the rest of northern Utah.
Parowan Prophet — Predicting Nuclear war in 2003
Again the mystical Right Wingers take flight! Rod Parsley’s Guest Gary Bauer proclaimed that if Obama was elected, which Rod (of course) bobble-headed. Don’t forget the non-so-subtle threats from the “Concerned Christians” over there at the Victoria Advocate. In Fact, let’s ask Yahoo Answers how the Mystics of the Desert feel about Obama.
It’s comforting to think that the last guy was so blessed with the power of “the sight” too.
When will it end? Well, according to the Prophet, in about 10 days. Good Luck!
In the Pat Robertson Prayer Challenge I asserted that Pat could not lose when he compels his flock to pray for something. All over the web; Christians took to the Deitic Airwaves to call for God to come down and press the lever on their behalf.
“There are millions of people around this world praying to their god—whether it’s Hindu, Buddha, Allah—that his opponent wins, for a variety of reasons. And Lord, I pray that you will guard your own reputation, because they’re going to think that their God is bigger than you, if that happens,” said Arnold Conrad, the former pastor of Grace Evangelical Free Church in Davenport.

Pray for Obama to lose election
Christians should stand united in prayer on Nov. 3, at 7 p.m. around the world for the coming election.
Have you done your research yet? What is leading you to vote — mammon (money) or what God says is right?
We are supposed to lead the blind. We are not supposed to tell them what is right in their eyes is right, because they cannot see.
Have you voted already? Why is Barack Hussein Obama pushing that you vote early? Is he hiding something?
Is Jesus going to ask you on Judgment Day why you voted for a president who is a Democrat in 2008 if you knew that he lies.
A lot of people say the politicians lie. Sometimes we believe what they say, because we hope for the best. We are supposed to hope for the best. When you know someone is lying you are not supposed to vote for that person.
If someone says they’re a Christian it doesn’t mean they are. If you sit in a garage it doesn’t make you a car, just like if you sit in church it doesn’t mean you’re a Christian. How do you know if someone is a Christian? You know by they’re works or deeds not just their words. A Christian means to be Christlike. Jesus says “Thou shalt not kill” Obama says, that it’s OK to kill babies. Even if the baby was supposed to be aborted, but lives, the nurses are supposed to put them in a laundry cart and let them starve to death, naked.
In Judges, it says that the men wanted to know ( to have sex with) the visitor (a man) who came to town and God said, “That is a vile thing and should not be found among his children”
Obama says that to be gay is OK and for homosexuals to marry their partners is OK. Take a look at the presidential report card at http://www.savecalifornia.com/PresidentialReportCard.pdf.

It has occurred to me that this could mean our prayers for a McCain victory are going to be answered in the affirmative, and that somewhere inside me, I know better than to worry. On the other hand, it could be the result of a deep realization that I am becoming separate from the world, and that my security comes from God, not politicians.
And So on…
Now, the Pat Robertson’s of the world can say, “Well, God answered the prayers of those who Prayed FOR Obama to Win.” or “Now we sit back and wait for God’s Punishment” whatever.
Those who truly believe in Prayer will never see it’s failure as an indictment against it; only that they didn’t pray correctly or that they didn’t do it hard enough. The first Murder in the Bible was in part Inspired by this same fervor, Caine could not make an offering to God that he felt was “good enough” and so he sacrificed his brother. Rather than take the advice of their own “book” the Fundamentalist overlooks the obvious lesson and just takes the punishment.
It’s this continued avoidance of learning and understanding that makes a Fundamentalist who they are and allows Cynics like Mr. Robertson to prey on them again and again.
The first is that, whether the Lord’s Prayer is retained or not, our elected representatives should be reminded — every morning — there is a larger power than themselves. Politicians forget this fact too often. When they do, they become tempted to believe they are the be-all and end-all, answerable to no one.

I know a Dan Brown, this seems like his kind of thinking. Perhaps a better idea would be a pledge affirmed by each upon taking office that they will uphold the will of the people; which is of course what they are supposed to be doing. If it was God’s will that they were supposed to be following, shouldn’t they busy themselves putting the evil amongst us to death for the wearing of blended cloth (etc.)
I know, I know. The evil leftist atheist devil!!! How dare he question the dominance of our paradigm!?!? True, Canada has more fully embraced “The Jesus” than has the USA. I think that has staved a great deal of the Overt Crazy that The USA has running around it lands with crosses on it. However, a more broad opening oath or affirmation may serve to embrace Canada’s more secular reigns (lest the scary Sharia creep show up in commons, no?). It may serve my learned friends of the cloth to remember the more eloquent quote of their favorite philosopher:
Matthew 22:15-22 (King James Version)
King James Version (KJV)
15Then went the Pharisees, and took counsel how they might entangle him in his talk.
they sent out unto him their disciples with the Herodians, saying,
Master, we know that thou art true, and teachest the way of God in
truth, neither carest thou for any man: for thou regardest not the
person of men.
17Tell us therefore, What thinkest thou? Is it lawful to give tribute unto Caesar, or not?
18But Jesus perceived their wickedness, and said, Why tempt ye me, ye hypocrites?
19Shew me the tribute money. And they brought unto him a penny.
20And he saith unto them, Whose is this image and superscription?
say unto him, Caesar’s. Then saith he unto them, Render therefore unto
Caesar the things which are Caesar’s; and unto God the things that are
22When they had heard these words, they marvelled, and left him, and went their way.
So, what was soul-brother number one tell his followers? I like to think that Jesus was telling us that the affairs of state are just those, affairs of Men and not of God and should be treated as such. One should not worship at any alter save that of “his Father.”
This segues easily into my “Prayer is for thanks … and nothing else” discussion, but I’ll save that for another blog post.
