I'm a Christian and a Californian by birth. Don't lump me with the California Nut Cases

President Obama was greeted by a rather rowdy crowd Monday night at a fundraiser at the House of Blues in Los Angeles.

While the vast majority of the comments yelled out by those in attendance were of the pro-Democrat variety, at least one man in the crowd was less than pleased with the president and didn’t hesitate to make his feelings known by calling Obama "the antichrist" before being escorted out by Secret Service.

The Washington Post with the play-by-play shortly after the president took the stage at the music hall:

“Christian God is the one and only true living God, the creator of Heaven and the Universe,” [the man] shouted, as the crowd began booing loudly to try to drown him out.

Obama stopped speaking and smiled uncomfortably at him as the man continued shouting: “I love Jesus. Jesus Christ is God. Jesus Christ is the son of God.”

Eventually, the Secret Service plunged into the crowd and dragged the man toward the exit. “Jesus Christ is God; Barack Obama is the antichrist!” he shouted.

The crowd chanted “four more years!”

When the commotion was over, Obama said: “All right, where was I? It is good to be back in LA.”

Although he claims to be a Christian, many Americans still believe that President Obama is a Muslim at heart.

The fact that his parents and grandparents are believed to be Muslims adds fuel to the fire for this stereotypical belief.

I certainly hope that he means what he said. It is dangerous is say such things for political gain.
