Funderburk Nation

Fort Mill [SC, Pop. 9400] Mayor Danny Funderburk says he was "just curious" when he forwarded a chain e-mail suggesting Democratic Presidential Candidate Barack Obama is the biblical antichrist. "I was just curious if there was any validity to it,” Funderburk said in a telephone interview. "I was trying to get documentation if there was any scripture to back it up."

There is no "the antichrist" in the Bible. There are "many," and they were all reportedly wandering around 1700 years ago. Shouldn't this clown be aware of that already? Even I know there is no such thing.

Just curious. Right. And there's a bridge in Ketchikan for sale.

Talk about hilarious. I found by following your links that the chain message claims that Revelations says that the anti-Christ will be in his 40s and muslim. Only trouble is, Mohammed lived over 500 years past the time of Jesus of Nazareth and so, of course, the Muslim faith emerged well past when this book of the New Testament.
