In Dayton, there’s an allegation of two men spraying a ‘chemical irritant’ into the building of the Islamic Society of Greater Dayton during prayer services. At least two worshipers were taken to area hospitals.

I’m not even sure which sure-to-ignore-this conservative blogger I should call out over their inevitable ignoring of this. There’s just so damn many.

In other news, Fort Hill, SC mayor Danny Funderburk (who is, sadly, not former NBA bench player Lawrence Funderburke) forwarded a chain e-mail claiming that Barack Obama was the Antichrist because he was “curious” about the claims within. You see, he’s just a religious scholar:

When asked if he believed Obama was the antichrist, Funderburk replied, “I’ve got absolutely no way of knowing that.”

Funderburk said it “probably does give that impression” that he believed the e-mail was true “but that was not my intent.”

The mayor said it was a mistake not to include a subject line when he forwarded the chain e-mail.

“I am curious about current events and their connection to the Bible,” he said.

There’s a temptation to find Funderburk’s e-mail and send him a series of e-mails claiming that other people are the Antichrist to see if he forwards those on…out of curiosity and all that. Instead, I just ask you to forward to all of your friends the following e-mail:


The Bible prophesies that the whore of Babylon will filthify our Earth:

17:4 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: 17:5 And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. 17:6 And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration. 17:9 And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.

17:10 And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space. 17:11 And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition. 17:12 And the ten horns which thou saw are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.



Do you Yahoo?

You know. Out of curiosity.
