endtimesInclude me in the ranks of those who are skeptical about what the US is trying to do in Syria. This particular analysis, however, forms no part of my thinking:

Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) over the weekend accused President Obama of arming al Qaeda militants in Syria and said it was evidence “we’re in God’s end times.”



“This happened and as of today the United States is willingly, knowingly, intentionally sending arms to terrorists,” Bachmann said in a radio interview with Understanding the Times that was first reported by Right Wing Watch. “Now what this says to me, I’m a believer in Jesus Christ, as I look at the End Times scripture, this says to me that the leaf is on the fig tree and we are to understand the signs of the times, which is your ministry, we are to understand where we are in God’s end times history.”

“Rather than seeing this as a negative, we need to rejoice,” she continued. “Maranatha, come Lord Jesus, his day is at hand. When we see up is down and right is called wrong, when this is happening, we were told this; these days would be as the days of Noah.”

Okey dokey.

    Wow. Just wow.

    I regularly read and comment (and occasionally link from here) at the Washington Post’s On Faith site. During the last campaign, they regularly ran columns criticizing Republican primary voters for the fact that Bachmann and Santorum were serious candidates.

    But they never acknowledged them for finally selecting the sensible candidate.

    Jesus himself predicted that we were in the end times, and that some people listening to him would live to see them. Unless Mel Brooks’ 2000+-year-old man is real, rather than a comic construct, He was wrong. As far as I can tell, there hasn’t been a time when some prominent Christian has not confidently predicted that we were in the end times and would live to see them. Their predictions haven’t fared better than Jesus’ did.

    This is what caused me to leave the Republican Party, I might still vote for even an Evangelical christian against a liberal Democratic, it just depends upon the issues. The Republican Party unfortunately I thought had room for people besides evangelicals but the Tea Party particularly the Patriots pushed the christian nation and God is judging us for our sins. The Tea Party ignores that they have Mark Levin that is a Jew and sometimes they listened to Heather Macdonald who is an atheists but the Tea Party shutdown attempt and those further to the right like Pat Buchanan who complains about immigration and trade and never does anything about it except write books is driven me from the right coalitions. Buchanan like crazy Glenn Beck also is a disappointment since they pushed the secession movement which probably will not work in most places. The smaller red states actually get more back from the federal for their taxes then the largest states. Everyone understand why people that think abortion is murder and hate high income taxes might want to leave California or Colorado but many of them just don’t have the money if they could. Republicans and conservatives are crazy like they were in the late 1970′s when Howard Ruff and company predicted you had to moved to small places like New Mexico to survive.

    About 40 years ago, most evangelicals were Apolitical or Hubert Humphrey democratics unless you live in the suburbs of Dallas Texas or Orange County California. The Republican Party was little impacted by them in the 1980′s except the Mexico accords on birth control a few limits on abortion but not a great deal. Today, they are on a war path since they hate Barrack Obama and they have with some exceptions like some conservative Catholics or Levin or Eric Cantor chased away everyone else. They were better 40 years ago when they were slightly more Republican and still many were democratic if they were lower income and voted for HHH and Jimmy Carter.

    In fact, Michelle Bachman view on the end times is losing ground with younger evangelical pastors. For example, Chuck Smith who recently died was one of the fans of her thinking but younger evangelicals for example Joel Olstein is more into positive thinking a modern Robert Schuller than end times. I predict in 10 years evangelical Christians will get rid of Darby and think less of the end times but have a different way of thinking Joel Ostein. Joel is good to have as the major mega church in the US since he is into positive thinking and less into politics.
