Many of us who have long been tracking the Religious Right find it anything but rapturous. Here is a dogma based in fear and the ultimate judgment: If you’re not with us, you’re doomed to being Left Behind to suffer years of Tribulations: plagues, world financial markets crashing, environmental destruction, holy wars, and an Anti-Christ who is popular and evil; he supposedly rules over a One World system that doesn’t look very white, evangelical or even American. That’s why during his election, so many Internet sites were abuzz with the question: “Is Obama the Anti-Christ?”
The Religious right, like the poor in spirit, will always be with us. But their reign of terror and blame and meanness is almost over. As the young mature into their own power and vision, the old might consider dropping their immature, polarizing dogmas — and get along with the rest of us. If the Religious Right and their short-term solutions want to leave this Earth and save only themselves — let them. That would be some kind of rapture. Then the rest of us could really get to work in saving this world.~

I also agree that all of the speculation that Obama might be “THE” Antichrist is foolish.
Obama is anti-christian but he is not ” THE “AC.
