There's actually nothing in the bible about a single person being the anti-christ. It's just someone who doesn't believe in christ IIRC. As usual various dumbshits are responsible for the incorrect usage of it.

I'm not sure about that. From what I've seen and read, the Anti-Christ is referred to as the one who brings about the end of the world and leads the non-believers and blasphemers into a confrontation against Jesus and his posse. They are supposed to be a person who gains power people love and he tricks them into following him instead of religion.
It's all just a story anyway that organized religion used to keep themselves in power and be as abusive and corrupt as they wanted to be.

This is nothing new, people have been saying this about different artists for years. Claims of backmasking (playing a record backwards) has been used to suggest artists have been using subliminal messaging to turn people to Satanism, Stairway to Heaven for example played backwards was supposedly about worshiping Satan, and with the exception of some bands like Slayer, it is a bunch of crap. Blasphemy in art does exist however. The Virgin Mary painted with elephant dung, "My Sweet Lord" made out of chocolate and the Muhammad cartoons come to mind.

Chocolate can never be involved in blasphemy.
Yep, like nOe said Dragon, the Antichrist aren't mere non believers, that would be the atheists. The Antichrist are most commonly spoken of as adversaries of Christ and Christians, especially in end times and often posing as false messiahs, prophets or Christ himself.
The bible does speak in terms of false prophets and messiahs when referring to Antichrist. It doesn't tend to emphasize them mainly as mere non believers, because the disbelief in Christ and Christianity is just a small portion of their agenda. They primarily want to oppose Christ and Christians. If it were just disbelief they'd be atheists. That's why I feel some of the lower case definitions listed in the links above aren't totally correct.
Saying you don't believe in something is one thing, trying to dismantle it quite another. In other words if you'll notice, most atheists feel there's nothing there to dismantle, because they feel there's no real Godly power behind Christianity. The Antichrist definitely have an agenda against Christ, thus the anti part of the word.
What I'm saying is there's a difference between disbelief in the sense of a lack of acknowledging Christs's existence, vs acknowledging his existence, but not his birthright and/or claimed power, or "might" as they say in the bible. Truth be told though, if it weren't for the Apostle John, the word Antichrist would not even appear in the bible.
I never quite got what the whole deal was with Lady Gaga. I never completely understood why people like her so much and consider her a valid artist. Seems to me that she's made a career off of lewd and obscene outfits, music videos, and performances. As far as any sensible person should care, strapping guns to your bare tits is not making a statement, it's doing something stupid to get attention from people who don't know any better.
But to be fair, it's a brilliant marketing scheme.
