    • No exit
      The House impeachment inquiry continues this morning with additional witnesses to the Fall of the House of Trump. “Fall” here may not mean Trump’s removal from office, nor “House of Trump” his family, but the party he has put under his boot heel. History will be kind to neither. NBCNews foreign correspondent Richard Engel suggests … Continue reading No exit […]

    • How to Fix Fake News
      The reason fake news exists is not complicated. The majority of journalists don’t follow a professional ethical code. It’s not that they don’t have an ethical code. It’s that they – or more likely their paymasters — don’t want to be held accountable for breaking it. Four basic elements comprise the Society of Professional Journalism’s […]

OhFerPetesSakes, Alexis Tsipris is not the Antichrist

The Syriza swish-star logo makes a cool “mark of the beast”.

The headlines at many Rapture sites are claiming that the new head of Greece is he-who-shall-not-be-named. I mean, he came out of nowhere, although, I have to admit that this site was almost three years early. I’m not sure if they’re tuned into the End Times or are really good at political forecasting. Maybe Hillary should hire them. (Wait, could a woman become an anti-christ? Now, that would be unexpected.)

But anyway, Tsipris met with the Pope. His supporters are called The Earthquake. He might bring down the Euro! Dogs and cats living together! The Signs! The Signs!

Oh, please.

Alexis Tsipris is like, what, the 20th possible antichrist? Whatever happened to Juan Carlos of Spain? What about Obama? HE came from nowhere and was backed by some mysterious, nebulous group to become leader of the most powerful empire on earth, right? And now he’s being upstaged by some dude in rinky-dink Greece?

In all likelihood, Tsipris is NOT the antichrist (again), the End Times are NOT coming, the “signs” are a collection of unrelated events, and endtimers are going to die regular deaths like every other person on the planet. Christians wanting to go to heaven while seeking to avoid the prerequisite step are acting against the central doctrine of their faith. Even Jesus had to do the whole death and resurrection thing.

Get a grip.
