I disagree that Satan is the problem as much as the perfidy of man, perhaps inspired by Satan, granted.

As a rather chilling tale, I remember back when Obama was just a candidate running against Hillary. There was the typical huffing and puffing at the time that Obama might be the antichrist.

However, there was some unusual chatter by those supporting Obama, to the effect that they *hoped* Obama was the antichrist, because “Then he would be powerful and give us stuff, and hurt the people we hate!”

At the time, appalled, the light dawned that this seems to be the shortsighted ambition of the Democrat party in general, that the purpose of power is to “reward your friends and punish your enemies.”

And they really don’t think beyond that point.

I don’t think this is the work of Satan, in particular because such blindness, greed and utter amorality seems to be more an absence of wisdom, a repulsion of virtue, a meanness of spirit that is a case of omission, not commission.

Such people are amoral as a rejection of virtue, stupid as a rejection of wisdom, and hateful, not out of envy, but out of utter despair.

They do not need to follow Satan, because by one definition they are already in Hell. They live in the absence of God, by choice. In their quest to forget their knowledge of good and evil, they have not returned to Eden, but stagger around aimlessly looking for a new god.

While we can’t prove that Obama is the Antichrist, we certainly know by now that he’s one of the Acolytes of the Antichrist ~ ever see that guy catch flies ~ a regular old Belzebub Fur Shur.
