Republicans have begun to play dirty in their efforts to tear down Barack Obama. The latest whisper campaign whipped up by supporters of John McCain claims, based upon the word of missionaries Celeste and Loren Davis, that Barack Obama is the secret representative of a corrupt and violent political dynasty in Kenya, as well as a member of an Islamic jihadist conspiracy that plans to destroy America.
Those are intense attacks against Barack Obama, but as I pointed out yesterday afternoon, Loren Davis Ministries should not be given much credibility when it comes to matters like this. After all, Loren and Celeste Davis have said that Hillary Clinton, public education, the National Football League, and even many Christian churches are cooperating in a gigantic satanic conspiracy. I pointed to the Loren Davis Ministries web site to document that Loren Davis had in fact made these crazy claims.
Today, in an attempt to control the public relations crisis for their anti-Obama whisper campaign, the Loren Davis Ministries removed their article that claims that the NFL is part of a satanic conspiracy. Look for it, and all you’ll see now is a notice that the article cannot be found.
Unfortunately for the Loren Davis Ministries, they didn’t think through this cover up very thoroughly. They didn’t take into account, for example, the existence of Google Cache. Google Cache saves a copy of most web sites, so that people can get information even if a web site is temporarily off-line. So, lickety-split, I was able to get right to the Loren Davis web site page about the satanic conspiracy of the Star of Sirius. Almost as quickly, I saved that article as a PDF.
Here it is for you, then: the PDF of the document Loren Davis tried to destroy, in which Loren Davis writes, “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 secular news media was even talking about this. No one should be naive enough to believe that this was merely coincidental. The world is being conditioned to fulfill Revelation 13:4, to boldly and openly worship Satan. The Bible prophesies this is coming. These are some of the signs of the times. (Matthew 16:3)”
Why would Loren Davis pull down this web site so quickly, in response to our calling attention to it? There are a couple explanations I can think of:
1. What Loren Davis said about there being an NFL conspiracy to promote satanic worship because of something hanging off a guitar during a Super Bowl halftime show was absolutely ridiculous. This claim exposes the complete lack of credibility that Celeste and Loren Davis have, and they realized that. So, they attempted to cover up the article in order to try to salvage their nasty rumormongering against Barack Obama (and Hillary Clinton too – remember that they called her a socialist and satanist too).
2. They wanted to prevent the exposure of John McCain as a satanist.
Let me explain #2.
In the same article in which Loren Davis claims that the NFL is broadcasting messages for Satan, he also attacks the five pointed star. Celeste and Loren Davis believe that the five-pointed star is an ancient symbol of Satan, and so accuse any organization that prominently displays a five-pointed star of being part of a satanic conspiracy to destroy Christianity.
Loren Davis writes, “THE SIRIUS STAR is symbolized by the five
pointed star… The Sirius star is the foundation of the Baal religion of Egypt… BAAL WORSHIP, found in the Old Testament, was practiced in Egypt. BAAL comes from the word BAALZEBUB or BELZEBUB who is SATAN. BAAL WAS LITERALLY SATAN WORSHIP.”
There you have it, pretty clearly. Loren Davis proposes that the five pointed star is the Mark of the Beast, and a symbol of Satan.
Well, that’s a pretty inconvenient belief for a man who wants to destroy Barack Obama so that John McCain can be elected. You see, the logo for the McCain for President campaign has a big 5-pointed star right in the middle of it.
So, by the standards of Loren Davis himself, John McCain must be a satanist. The 5-pointed star is practically plastered all over the John McCain for President web site, so if we are to believe the conspiracy theories of Loren Davis, we must conclude that John McCain is not only a servant of Satan, but a very enthusiastic Satan worshipper at that.
Of course, I don’t believe the conspiracy theories of Celeste and Loren Davis. I don’t believe that the 5-pointed star is a symbol of Satan, and I don’t believe the nonsense that Barack Obama is an undercover agent for Al Quaida either.
There’s trouble for those who have promoted the rumors attributed to Loren Davis, however. If they say that Loren Davis is a credible source on the crazy Barack Obama rumors, then they ought to accept the silly satanic star interpretations of Loren Davis as well. If they do that, they must conclude that John McCain is in league with the Devil.
Of course, Loren Davis and the silly ditto heads who have been forwarding his rumors about Barack Obama around the Internet are supporters of John McCain. So, they can’t deal with the idea that their own favorite candidate is himself a representative of the Hordes of Hell.
If Loren Davis were an honest Christian preacher, he’d take a look at his rantings and conclude that John McCain is indeed a satanist who wants to kill Jesus. But, it seems that Loren Davis is not an honest Christian preacher. Instead of following the logical structures of his conspiracy theories, Loren Davis just tried to shove them under the rug.
The Loren Davis Ministries simply deleted the parts of the conspiracy theory that were incovenient for the John McCain for President campaign. Yesterday, Loren Davis believed that a 5 pointed star is a sign of Satan. Today, Loren Davis has deleted that belief.
Depending on whether his original claims about the meaning of the 5-pointed star were correct, this coverup exposes Loren Davis either 1) a purposeful huckster who doesn’t believe his own preachings; or 2) a collaborator with Satan who is willing to promote a presidential candidate he knows to be an agent of Satan.
You choose which interpretation makes the most sense.
