Is Obama the anti-christ?

The questions has been asked, "Is Barack Hussein Obama the anti-christ?"

Famed Catholic-Canadian author, Michael O'Brien, says "not a chance!" But, he does not say that for the reasons you might suppose!

"From my own reading of Obama's declarations and stated positions, I knew he was an ultra-liberal, a social revolutionary with visionary pretensions. But the Antichrist? No, not possible, I thought. I felt that he was too shallow a man to be the Son of Perdition, the Man of Sin, the Beast of the Book of Revelation. And I still think so. Obama is a crowd-pleaser with just the right ethos of idealistic crusader. That the crusade and the banners under which it marches are evil does not automatically prove that he is the Antichrist.

"But now that I have seen the video of the Berlin speech I think there is more here than meets the eye. He is indeed a powerful manipulator of crowds, even as he appears ever so humble and wholesomely charming. I doubt that he is the long-prophesied ruler of the world, but I also believe that he is a carrier of a deadly moral virus, indeed a kind of anti-apostle spreading concepts and agendas that are not only anti-Christ but anti-human as well. In this sense he is of the spirit of Antichrist (perhaps without knowing it), and probably is one of several key figures in the world who (knowingly or unknowingly) will be instrumental in ushering in the time of great trial for the Church under its last and worst persecution, amidst the numerous other tribulations prophesied in the books of Daniel and Revelation, and letters of St Paul, St. John, and St. Peter."

Here are some hard-hitting quotes from O'Brien:
"I have read a number of his pronouncements, and saw the smoke and mirrors beneath the rhetoric..."

"I knew he was an ultra-liberal, a social revolutionary with visionary pretensions."

"He is indeed a powerful manipulator of crowds, even as he appears ever so humble and wholesomely charming."

"I also believe that he is a carrier of a deadly moral virus, indeed a kind of anti-apostle spreading concepts and agendas that are not only anti-Christ but anti-human as well."

"Yet when all the rhetoric is boiled down to its substance, the man is advocating unlimited state-sanctioned murder, and compounds it by indulging in habitual falsehood."

Although I do not agree with Roman Catholic doctrine, this piece still makes for interesting reading.
