A long time ago, Kent Hovind caused much hilarity when he claimed that UFOs were “Satanically owned and operated,” but it turns out that this is a pretty common belief among the fringes of the Christian right. Mark Hitchock, author of a recent book on “blood moons” and the end times, is the latest:
“I think it’s very possible that these kinds of things also could be setting people up for various kinds of delusion in the End Times,” Hitchock said. “Demonic materialization disguised as UFOs or extraterrestrials or whatever that may be I think is just another one of Satan’s tactics, especially as we draw nearer to the End Times to deceive and delude and frighten and confuse and mislead people. I really believe that’s going to maybe even be heightened as the End Times draw near.”
So when Jim Garrow claims that Obama is going to be talking to aliens soon, he’s really going to be talking to Satan? Sounds legit.
