Wiles: Russia Good, America Part of ‘Antichrist System’

We have another Christian right candidate who would probably be happier living in Russia. Rick Wiles of TruNews this week said that Russia is “standing for traditional family values” while the United States is now “part of the Antichrist system” because we’re increasingly treating gay people equally.

“The country that’s acting like it’s part of the kingdom of the Antichrist is the United States of America, and Russia is standing against homosexual marriage, they’re standing for traditional family values,” Wiles said. “The United States is exporting its wickedness, we’re using our power and might to force nations to change their laws to accept abortion, to accept homosexual marriage and homosexual rights, so which country is part of the Antichrist system and which is not?”

Wiles has already said that he thinks America is hopeless, too far gone to save, and he has had effusive praise for Putin. I hear there are flights to Russia every day. At the very least, he should do that to avoid the nuclear war he thinks is coming to the United States because of gay rights.

    This guy is a candidate? For what?

    Can anyone imagine a Democratic candidate calling America “wicked” and talking about how much better Russia is? Fox News would play the tape 24/7.

    Actually we’re kind of behind the curve on both issues. The Europeans beat us to the wickedness finish line at least a decade ago.

    Calling America wicked for racism, warmongering, and holding the poor in contempt is bad. Calling America wicked for gay marriage, socialism (rather their bizzarro idea of it), and other religious right boogeymen is good.

    Seeing as this God of theirs seems to hit his own followers way more often than he hits us, I’d say we traded up on this one.

    I wonder if Rick knows how Putin treats evangelicals like himself.

    Now you’re just being ridiculous. He doesn’t want to go to Russia. He wants to bring it here.

    Only 50 million years and he’ll have his wish.

    @1: “Can anyone imagine a Democratic candidate…”

    Wiles isn’t a candidate for political office. I’m not sure why Ed used that word.
