Anti-Christ Sprouts in Brussels

The Rev Dr Ian Paisley’s website notes that there are 679 seats in the European Parliament, but that number 666 is unallocated. I suggest three possibilities:

1. Paisley is making it up.

2. No MEP wants the number – which would be an interesting concession to superstition, like the lack of row 13 on aeroplanes.

3. As Paisley suggests, the seat is being kept vacant for the anti-Christ, who will take it up in due course. Bit of a giveaway, though.

By the way, if A=6, B=12, C=18, D=24, E=30, F=36 etc. (a formula beloved of some fundamentalists), Ian Paisley is himself the anti-Christ.

  1. The beats of revelation 13 must be assciated with the imagery (head of lion, feet of bear, body of leopard) How is Ian Paisley associated with that imagery?
