Obama not antichrist

CARTERSVILLE, GA.–The ultra-conservative clergy gathered in the weekend huddle on Biblical prophecy warn that the Antichrist soon will show himself. They cannot yet say who he is. But they are willing to declare who he is not.
"Some people say it's President Obama – that's just wild-eyed speculation," says Ed Hindson, author of more than 20 books on the meaning of apocalyptic scripture. "It's not Nero, it's not Charlemagne, not Napoleon, not Hitler, Stalin or Kennedy," Hindson tells people attending the Global Warning conference here. "It's not Khrushchev.
"I've heard people say it's Al Gore – trust me, nobody from Tennessee is going to conquer the world."
These men see Obama more as a kind of valet to the Antichrist. The Obama administration's policies of friendly international outreach, they say, are hastening the decline of American power, thereby setting the stage for a resurgence of Europe.
And that is where the Antichrist will emerge, Hindson predicts, thus elevating modern-day Europe to a de facto "Third Roman Empire," as foretold in the book of Daniel.
"The political unification of Europe oughta be like a flashing red light to get our attention," he says. "All of a sudden the Euro is stronger than the dollar ... The Antichrist will rise from Europe as Europe revives in the end days."
