If you’re at all involved in political discussions about the 2008 presidential candidates, the chances are that you’ve run into some comments about Celeste and Loren Davis, and the shocking revelations they are supposed to have about Barack Obama.
Among their allegations:
– Barack Obama is secretly a Muslim
– Barack Obama is part of a secret conspiracy to complete the agenda of the September 11 attacks
– Barack Obama and his family in Kenya are a socialist political powerhouse behind the recent violence there
Celeste Davis and Loren Davis are claimed to be plain, ordinary Christian missionaries who have gone to Africa, and have learned the sinister truth about Barack Obama by talking to people there. Who are these people, really?
Celeste and Loren Davis are the leaders of Loren Davis Ministries, which you’ll see is by no means a simple mainstream Christian organization, if you examine even it briefly.
Let me introduce you to some of the assertions, not directly referring to Barack Obama, made by Loren Davis Ministries:
“Satan is a deceiver. He comes with many different masks: atheism, Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, Communism, public educational institutions, Hollywood and the New Age to name just a few.”
“THE DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATES FOR PRESIDENT HILLARY CLINTON AND BARAK OBAMA SPOKE AT RICK WARREN’S SADDLE BACK CHURCH. Why? What does having the politicians speaking at his church have anything to do with bringing people to Christ and faith in the Bible?… Hillary Clinton’s book, “It takes a Village to Raise a Child”, is a socialistic concept. Her national health plan is SOCIALIZED MEDICINE. Is Rick Warren’s promotion of these politicians just coincidental, or indicative of their common socialistic agenda? Rick Warren himself baptized a homosexual activist. This is defying the Bible.”
“The antichrist is coming. The paganized church is positioning itself to survive and thrive under the Antichrist’s regime. “
“An interesting thing happened during the American Super Bowl which determines the NFL Football Champion, February, 2007. The half-time entertainer had a big cloth of some kind around the stage on which he was performing. There was an appendage hanging down from his guitar. This created a silhouette that LOOKED LIKE SATAN with a forked tail, and below him showed the silhouettes of people with their hands lifted as if they were WORSHIPPING SATAN.”
The Loren Davis Ministries web site is full of this kind of nonsense.
Some supporters of John McCain and Hillary Clinton who are worried about the popularity of Barack Obama are beginning to cite the claims Celeste and Loren Davis make about Barack Obama. I’ve got a piece of friendly advice to them: Don’t be tempted by the easy sensationalism of the Loren Davis slurs. It isn’t going to do McCain or Clinton any good to have their campaigns associated with the wacky extremist conspiracy theories about Satan promoted by Loren Davis.
Besides – it’s probably only a matter of time before Loren Davis declares that John McCain’s use of a 5-pointed Star of Sirius in his campaign material proves that he is a secret servant of Satan. As for Hillary Clinton, Loren Davis has already implied that she is part of a socialist conspiracy to serve Satan by destroying true Christianity.
UPDATE: Loren Davis Ministries has responded to this article by attempting to erase evidence of his radical beliefs. The group has begun deleting web pages from its site that reveal the bizarre belief of Loren Davis about widespread satanic conspiracies. If you want to see a sample of the evidence that Loren Davis has tried to eliminate, check out this PDF document of a web page we have preserved here at Irregular Times.

It’s proof – Loren Davis is a disreputable conspiracy theorist, and he knows it. Why else would he try to cover up this information?
