At least they've taken a break from bloviating about their phony "war on Christmas" for a while. Bill O'Reilly's favorite wingnut pastor, Robert Jeffress was back, attacking President Obama and I think someone forgot to tell him to take his meds this Monday.

O'REILLY: The first issue is Obamacare. How does that have biblical implications?

JEFFRESS: What I'm saying in the book Bill, is that there's going to be a future world dictator before Christ returns who's going to usurp people's personal feelings... rights. He's not only going to do that. He's going to wage war against god's people. He's going to change god's laws, and he's going to do it without any opposition.

And my question was, how is he going to be able to pull that off? And my thesis is people will have been conditioned long before the Anti-Christ comes to accept governmental overreach. And that's what you're seeing with President Obama, right now. […]

O'REILLY: Now we had that to some extent, a pretty vivid extent in WWII, with Hitler and the Nazis and then we had it on a lesser extent with Stalin and the Communists, both ideologies tried to wipe out Christian beliefs and philosophies. So this is going to be like that? Worse than that?

JEFFRESS: It's going to be worse than that and I want to be clear to say to the folks, I'm not saying President Obama is the Anti-Christ. In fact, I’m sure he’s not, because the Anti-Christ is going to have higher poll numbers, according to the Bible, at least at the beginning.

But I believe he is conditioning people to accept governmental overreach, which they will finally give into when the final dictator comes, whether that's ten years from now or a thousand years from now.

Yeah, he doesn't really think the president is the Anti-Christ. He's just going to be responsible for what happens when they get here:

He argued that in addition to Obamacare creating a culture of dependency, Obama is sowing the seeds for the Anti-Christ with the contraception mandate and “abortion-inducing drugs,” as well as the “redefinition of marriage.” He argued that gay marriage is simply a “counterfeit” of real marriage, and “whenever you say marriage is whatever you want it to be… people say why bother getting married at all.”

This man really should not be allowed on the air without being forced to put a giant clown nose on first. Same goes for Bill-O.
