Facing South: Election 08: SC mayor “just curious” if Obama is antichrist

Facing South: Election 08 (9/29/08)

SC mayor “just curious” if Obama is antichrist

Danny Funderburk is mayor of Fort Hill, South Carolina (population 9,400). And he insists he doesn’t have anything against Sen. Barack Obama personally — but he is “curious” if Obama is the antichrist, reports the Charlotte Observer:

Fort Mill Mayor Danny Funderburk says he was “just curious” when he forwarded a chain e-mail suggesting Democratic Presidential Candidate Barack Obama is the biblical antichrist. “I was just curious if there was any validity to it,” Funderburk said in a telephone interview. “I was trying to get documentation if there was any scripture to back it up.”

The Observer points out why Funderburk may have wanted some help with his Bible studies:

The e-mail, which has circulated in the last six months since Obama secured the Democratic nomination, claims the biblical book of Revelation says the antichrist will be in his 40s and of Muslim ancestry.

There is no such scripture. And Obama is not a Muslim. But that hasn’t stopped the e-mail.
