Harold Camping is at least well named. Harold's camp consists of silly pronouncements about the Rupture Rapture, scheduled by Harold for May 21, 2011. Harold has already missed once, excusing his misprophecy by claiming he hadn't read chapter and verse of a certain Booblical Book. So, Harold camps. You know he is camping when you see the short clips of him that are shown over and over on some TV news stations.
I know Harold camps because he is so full of self-loathing he so despises same sex people and particularly males. He has the same message as that fat, double-chinned shuck and jiver, the ReverEND John Hagee ("Katrina was caused by gays"). Camping's lunatic congregation of losers and liars presumably gave Harold everything they had because, as he probably puts it, "You won't need that where we are going."
There's just one problem, Harold, you have many millions in bank accounts and that will keep a camel from passing through the eye of a needle.
So true. It is so disappointing to hear an seemingly normal person talk about how ridiculous today's rapture was, and then state, "No one knows when Jesus is coming."
Well, if I have a reinforced recessive gene which allows me to cut through the BS, I suppose I might facetiously thank the FSM for that ... except that I'm not sure I can even joke about a parody-god. I grew up with the programming, but it didn't stick. I was largely indifferent about the whole issue of religion through my adult years, up until something over two years ago, when I suppose I got woken up to the real problems and dangers of organized irrational belief. That and a bit of serendipity finally brought me here.
I don't believe and I'm glad of that.
I HATE when I get up on Sunday morning and start watching an early news show, and, as I get busy with other activities, the John Hagee crap comes on. I don't know what is worse, the sound of his voice or his big, fat, square head.
I just heard on the news that the rapture has been called off. Surprise! I guess the zombie jesus decided it isn't time. It is probably for the best, as he couldn't resist eating the brains of the xtians in the sky.
