From my perspective, there is a figurehead of the dark side; a man who will, at every opportunity, grant historic advances to the culling of humanity through unfettered abortion. Given his extreme liberalism, I could see him declaring a Bible-Free Zone (as in free from Bibles) around public schools.

Can you tell that I have grown weary of Barak Obama and his plagiarized, Martin Luther King speech delivery style? How apparent is it that I often gag on my own tongue when I hear people speak about the promise of change, when nothing of the sort is evident?

Why did I feel compelled to mix rhetoric about the Antichrist with my observations of Barak Obama? Is it because I am trying to say Barak Obama is the Antichrist, without saying that Barak Obama is the Antichrist? Don't I know that we should not worry about the End-Times, or that Christ's message was one of loving our neighbors, or that the Antichrist was really Nero and was only relevant to the time of John, or that the root of evil in the world is religion of any kind? Whatever you may be thinking at this moment, if not one of the above, you may stop for a moment and realize that your underwear is all knotted up in a bunch, and if so, it may be time to take inventory of your stand.

Perhaps the Antichrist was Nero, or just a fictional boogeyman of apocalyptic literature. Maybe Barak Obama really is the dreaded dude from the Book of Revelation. For me, Barak Obama's enthusiasm for abortion makes him seem every bit the Antichrist as would Nero, who dipped Christians in tar and used them as flaming lamp posts in his garden.

The vision for change that the Democrat sees for us is one veiled in shadows. Today it is that infuriating Bible that sits on John Freshwater's desk. Tomorrow, it may be the little country church that dares to play familiar hymns on their church tower bells. Religious expression, free from government interference matters as much, if not more, than border security and the right to bear arms.

This goes beyond one's personal relationship with Christ and the forgiveness of sins as we forgive those who sin against us. It is our right to profess our faith (or lack thereof), and we should not in this country be forced to hide it any more than we should be forced to embrace it. John Freshwater should never be required to leave his "Light" at home, whether he is a teacher or a trash can maker.
