Obama as antichrist or merely false prophet?

When I emailed the Washington DC photojournalist about buying one of her Obama photos so I could make a t-shirt, she asked how I was going to use the image. She said someone else had already asked for photos so that they could make a "Barack is antichrist" shirt, and that was the last thing she needed to have happen as she proceeds to put together a book about Obama.

This morning I got my morning Snopes feed, and this is what I found:

While I personally don't think Obama is an antichrist or "THE" Antichrist, I do believe there are antichrists in the world, and that there may be a capital "A" Antichrist who will play a part in future events.

Snopes seems to try to discredit the very existence of antichrist -- which by definition is “anyone or anything that counterfeits the true gospel or plan of salvation and that openly or secretly is set up in opposition to Christ." It was once said that Communism is the greatest anti-Christ power in the world. That was in '80s before the wall came down.

The wall may have come down, but communism is alive and well in the hearts and minds of many people throughout the world. In fact, communism and socialism is alive and well in the hearts and minds of people living right here in the United States. Socialism is only a slower and less violent form of communism, but both are counterfeit to the plan of the Savior, who believed in helping the poor, clothing the naked, feeding the hungry, liberating the captive, and administering relief to the sick and afflicted -- all through the power and freedom of free will and free agency. Never did he intend to do any of this by force.
