Obama Not Antichrist, Newspaper Correction Notes

No one can disparage the Lexington Dispatch’s commitment to accuracy.

The North Carolina newspaper reportedly published the following correction — which the Houston Chronicle called “one of the nuttiest corrections of the year” — last week:

The text reads:

Boyd Thomas’ letter Saturday contained an error in the headline. He does not believe President Obama is the Antichrist, who will come after seven kings, according to Revelation. He thinks Obama could be the seventh king.

The correction references this letter to the editor published on February 6. The Dispatch originally titled the letter “Is Obama the Antichrist?” The headline has now been amended to ask, “Is Obama the seventh king?”

The letter writer does not speculate as to who the preceding 6 kings would have been.
