Have you seen McCain's ad "The One" that got rolled out last week? I found it comical, but I might not be the desired audience. Some think "The One" aspires to make conservative evangelical Christians, not the biggest McCain backers, fearful that Obama is the Antichrist, or at least the prelude to Christ's evil-spreading opponent.
Recent McCain ads parallel statements made by influential Evangelicals, including Hal Linsey who has connected Obama to the Antichrist saying: "He [the Antichrist] will probably also stand in some European capital, addressing the people of the world and telling them that he is the one that they have been waiting for. And he can expect as wildly enthusiastic a greeting as Obama got in Berlin. The Bible calls that leader the Antichrist. And it seems apparent that the world is now ready to make his acquaintance."
While some analyze or rebuff the Moses/Jesus-Obama analogy, perhaps the whole comparison is simply a red herring for non-Evangelicals ignorant of the powerful Antichrist undertones. Could this ad subtly influence the otherwise skeptical demographic to vote for McCain, instead of staying home?
