DENVER—Denver police want to find out who sent an e-mail from a department computer suggesting that a presidential candidate is the antichrist.
KUSA-TV received a copy of the e-mail from a police officer who objected to the use of department computers to send such messages.
Police Chief Gerry Whitman launched an investigation Monday.
The e-mail states that the "Anti-Christ (sic) will be a man, in his 40's, of Muslim descent." It does not mention a candidate's name.
"Have the American People completely lost their Minds, or just their Power of Reason?" the e-mail says. "I'm sorry but I refuse to take a chance on the 'unknown' candidate."
Neither presidential candidate is a Muslim.
The e-mail also criticizes screeners at airports for not profiling travelers.
Fort Mill 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.”
Funderburk apparently sent the e-mail from his business account at Gastonia Sheet Metal where he works as a business agent.
"We believe that the End Times is near, based on the pattern of wars, earthquakes. and other strange phenomena we've been witnessing since the start of the New Millennium," said Jenkins. "Given that it may be imminent, the person who controls Babylon must be the Antichrist." Until 2003, many Christians believed that Saddam Hussein might be the Antichrist, since he started excavations to restore Babylon in the mid 1970s. But Hussein's death meant that the Antichrist is someone else. Since Obama wants to get out of Iraq, he can't be the Antichrist either, concluded Jenkins.
