Jesus Hates Obama

A scrapbook of Obama-Hate put together by your local Right Wing Church

The Tea Party group We the People of Marshall and Fulton counties   funded the sign. The group's leader, Don Nunemaker, told The Elkhart Truth that the message was intended as a call for action on Election Day, although he declined to say exactly whom it is voters need to "remove."

Although it was linked to a Tea Party group, the offending sign might just have been funded by a local church: the past four years have seen Christian Right animosity for Obama go from mild contempt to outright bloodthirsty hatred. We've seen pastors call for "imprecatory prayers" and call for Obama's death. We've heard groups like the American Family Association call Obama a baby-killer for the government's support of Planned Parenthood and an enemy to marriage and family values in his support of marriage equality.  

We've heard "prophets" like Cindy "Japan-is-shaped-like-a-dragon" Jacobs recount how the administration will suffer a dire scandal.* The election of Obama was the cause of America's collapse and moral decay:

Dutch Sheets**

The stakes couldn't have been higher nor the cost greater. As a nation we put on blinders concerning Barak Obama's background, associations, beliefs and practices, and set these causes back years, possibly decades. And in doing so we took another step away from God and His plans for America, and another step toward judgment."

Gone are the days when the Christian Right simply railed against "the Left" and the evil possibilities of socialism. The more direct approach - for the jugular - is deemed necessary.

Islamophobia Rules

The most potent and virulent screeds have lately focused on Obama's faith, and his tolerance towards Palestinians and hence, his attitude towards Islam, so in its scrapbook of Obama-hate, the Christian Right has assembled some very scary pictures.

The Book Of Revelations says absolutely nothing about a Muslim man in his 40's. Like the customized junk science of Creationism, the Islamophobic junk Bible interpretations proffer fear and loathing to people who don't read the Bible.

And signs like these:

With a bit of Tea Party spelling thrown in for good measure.

Obama As Anti-Christ

There is also the fervent desire to put across Obama as the Anti-Christ: whether it be pictured with horns or with "proof" of a Masonic handshake (video below), Obama as the embodiment of evil has been around for four years and is still strong.  

Yes, this is truly a WTF moment in Christian Right thinking, but desperate times...

If You Won't Buy Anti-Christ, How About Simply Anti-Christian?
