Election predictions from the sub-Christian religious right

What happens if Obama wins? The sky will fall, the moon will turn to blood, the seas will boil, human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together … mass hysteria! Just ask the dim-bulb luminaries of the religious right. They’re on record.

If President Barack Obama is re-elected …

Franklin Graham: “We are ripe for God’s judgment … His wrath against sin.”

Janet Porter of Faith2Action: FEMA to be used as “a standing army to stifle dissent.”

Joseph Farah of WorldNetDaily: “We will be hunted down like dogs.”

Joseph Farah of WorldNetDaily: “There may not be another free and fair election in America. I would expect due process to go the way of the horse and buggy. I think he will move to shut down and destroy all independent media. … His biggest critics will be rounded up in the name of national security. … If any Republican, conservative, independent journalist, pro-life activist, returning veteran, gun-rights activist, constitutionalist, Bible believer or critic of Obama thinks they will be safe in a second term under this would-be despot, they had better think again”

Joseph Mattera in Charisma magazine: “[We are] setting ourselves up to get the divine judgment we deserve to satisfy the justice of God! … Look for more challenges to our freedom of speech and the First Amendment that could possibly squelch what is preached on the airwaves and from the pulpit.”

Rick Joyner in Charisma magazine: “Christians in America will suffer persecution … we can expect it to soon become official state policy.”

Rick Santorum: “We lose, and Obamacare implemented, it’s over. … Everyone will be dependent upon government benefits. When that happens — our Founders pleaded and warned us against that — when that happens, game not on, but game over.”

Lubbock County, Texas, Judge Tom Head: “[President Obama] is going to try to hand over the sovereignty of the United States to the U.N. … He’s going to send in U.N. troops — with the little blue beanies.”

Bishop Harry Jackson: “If we go on four years more with the current administration, because our economic problems are spiritual and moral at root, that God’s displeasure is being manifest through the lack of finance and the lack of these things that we shared with you, the plagues and rejection are manifestations of chastening, the church has to vote the best it can our values, stop the onslaught of an ungodly agenda in America.”

Chuck and Gena Norris: “Socialism or something worse … a thousand years of darkness.”

Missouri Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder: “Every week [someone from Obama administration] is over at the UN planning to sign away our sovereignty, planning to give up our gun rights…or [to] submit us to a regime of global taxation.”

Cal Thomas/Dick Morris: “If he’s re-elected, particularly if there’s a Democratic Congress, he will eliminate the private health insurance industry and all insurance will be from the government and it will all be according to one plan. … But … his big focus will be to make the United States a vassal state to a globalist entity.”

Bryan Fischer: “I think there’s a real grave question about whether there will even be a country left to save by 2016.”

Bryan Fischer: “November 6 will determine whether America has a future under God’s blessing or under God’s judgment.”

Bryan Fischer: “America has no future.”

Wayne LaPierre: “All that first term, lip service to gun owners is just part of a massive Obama conspiracy to deceive voters and hide his true intentions to destroy the Second Amendment during his second term. … Get re-elected and, with no more elections to worry about, get busy dismantling and destroying our firearms’ freedom, erase the Second Amendment from the Bill of Rights and excise it from the U.S. Constitution.”

Jan Markell: “This is an apocalyptic election. It’s clearly the most important election in the history of America.”

Matt Barber: “America’s future really does hang in the balance.”

Matt Staver: “We are at a critical time of the future of America and literally the survival of Western Civilization, and I’m not exaggerating when I say that.”

Ralph Reed: If Obama wins reelection, “he can complete America’s destruction.”

    This is an election to re-elect Obama. We’ve already elected him once, and the world did not end…What has changed that makes THIS time, so much more apocalyptic?

    But the US is God’s chosen land. Jesus must be a US citizen.

    Where’s the birth certificate? And we want the LONG-form birth certificate, with God’s full name on it!

    HEY HEY HEY!!! We get to see how good these folks are at prophecy now! FUN TIMES Y’ALL

    I hope this post gets referred to a lot over the next 4 years.  It would be a shame if all these false prophets escaped accountability by letting their words fall down the memory hole.

     I was thinking the same thing about Santorum. Just as you’ll never pry the elderly loose from Medicare — and the right wing said exactly the same kind of things about *that* when it was first proposed! The difference is that I don’t think of that result as an Ultimate Evil.

    I don’t suppose you thought to do a roundup like this in 2008, did you? Because I swear I remember some of the exact same shit from back then.

    No mortal is allowed to see it, as it would melt the flesh from your bones.

    All this wringing of their white hands for a Mormon whom Mainstream Evangelicals have warned us was a cult false religion following a false prophet but now they are preaching doom if he is not elected. I smell fakes.

    And all this support for a Mormon when they teach against this religion as a delusional cult behind their christian church doors and in their aplogetic books against joining this group.

    Religious Pharisees with their Anti- Obama propaganda did not convince the majority of voters obviously for all to see now.

    They forgot their bibles said “God’s Judgment will begin in the House of the Lord” It is in First Peter chapter four verse 17 in the New Testament. Don’t blame Jesus for these hypocrites. They are giving Jesus a bad name!

    Sweetheart, I make thirteen dollars an hour. I’m pretty sure that makes me lower class. Tell me to your face that I am your enemy.

  • LogicGuru

    You are my enemy.

  • EllieMurasaki

    Now. You wanna tell me WHY a stranger on the Internet is your enemy? What have I ever done to harm you? Have you ever done anything to harm me?
