Barack Obama, The Antichrist

Many people were impressed last week by the speech made by Barack Obama who is running for Senate in IL. The good folks at The Christian Forums know exactly how Obama has been able to rise from obscurity so quickly. How? Well he is the Antichrist of course.

  • People can think what they want about me, I could really give a hoot. People think that the AC is coming out of the mid-east. My personal belief is that the AC is going to rise right out of the UN, and with this guys popularity, charisma, and how he is climbing the ranks in government real fast!!!, He may be in the UN next.
  • When I first heard of Barak, a few days ago, the first thing I heard is that he is a guy who came out of nowhere and now many flock to his side. When my wife and I heard this, we both thought the same thing, the anti-christ. Now I am not claiming him to be, just something that triggered that thought in both of us.
  • My sister and I both feel something “spooky” about this guy, but can’t quite figure out what it is. It is odd that strangers come up to him on the street. Why would they do that, unless they were drawn to him.
  • I don’t think we should directly label Obama as AC, but it is very interresting. While I was watching him, the VERY FIRST thought that came to my mind was asking the Lord if I was looking at the AC. I don’t have a big opinion either way, but man, that was pretty scary.

And so on. Sheesh, and people wonder why I am an atheist.

Henri Cartier-Bresson Dies

PAR43607.jpg

From Galveston County Daily News:

Henri Cartier-Bresson, perhaps the most famous photojournalist of the 20th century, has died at age 95.

The photographer’s many works include “The Galveston That Was,” a book that helped revive interest in preserving Galveston’s historic architecture.

Cartier-Bresson was perhaps the world’s most famous photographer when he came to Galveston to record its old buildings and houses, many of which were decaying…..

Cartier-Bresson disdained artificial settings and said photographers should shoot accurately and quickly, seeking “the decisive moment” when the ultimate significance of a given situation is laid bare. He shot with a Leica, the quietest of cameras, working only with black and white film, and notably, without a flash. Limelight, he said, was a sure way to destroy a subject.

If you want to see some of his amazing pictures, you can go here. NSFW(some are nudes)
