Another clue to the identity of the Anti-Christ

He will be gay.

But will the Antichrist be a homosexual? Having seen what the Bible says of sodomy, we have no further to look than the book of Daniel, chapter 11 to find our answer. It says, “Neither shall he [Antichrist] regard… the desire of women….” As I said at the onset, I am not the first to draw attention to this, but the verbiage is clear.

But consider this: The time is ripe for such a leader. Indeed, it should not be surprising that the one who is against everything Biblical and Christian should be a partaker of so great a sin; there is no greater way to reject the Creator than to reject your gender and his design for it. And at what other time have we seen such perversion come out of the closets onto our streets, threatening violence if we do not accept their ways?

I never trust Christians and creationists when they use ellipses, so here’s the whole passage from the book of Daniel:

   36And the king shall do according to his will; and he shall exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak marvellous things against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the indignation be accomplished: for that that is determined shall be done.

   37Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all.

   38But in his estate shall he honour the God of forces: and a god whom his fathers knew not shall he honour with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things.

It’s a bit ambiguous, as it’s not really saying anything about his sexual interests since it’s equating his disregard for the attentions of women to his disregard for gods, and unless Christianity has gotten really kinky, I don’t think honoring a god is the same as having physical desire for it. It seems to be saying he’s going to be very vain, instead; it seems to me that an argument could be made here that the anti-christ will be an atheist metrosexual.

It doesn’t matter, though. The anti-christ could be reading Pharyngula right now, since we’re pretty open to all those positions! Come on, if you’re reading, you should speak up and leave a comment — we’d like to know more about you!

By the way, the original article also accepts comments, and the majority right now are scathing. It’s very refreshing.
