Harold Camping, the California preacher who became omnipresent in the publicity blitz over his prediction of the end of the world, today was nowhere to be found after it became clear that the Rapture wasn’t happening. (here)
Duh… wouldn’t you go hiding too when you know that lots of people will now turn around and either sue you or try to take matter in to their own hands?
Keith Bauer, a tractor-trailer driver and Camping follower, said “I was hoping for it because I think heaven would be a lot better than this earth.”
He said “I had some skepticism but I was trying to push the skepticism away because I believe in God,” reported MSNBC.
Robert Fitzpatrick of Staten Island, New York, famously spent his life-savings to finance a massive ad campaign for the ‘Doomsday ‘message.
As the clock ticked towards 6 p.m. local time on May 21st 2011 – which Camping predicted to be the beginning of ‘Doomsday’ – Fitzpatrick waited expectantly at Time Square, New York City. While he waited, he was surrounded by revelers and mockers.
When ‘Doomsday’ failed to materialize, Fitzpatrick was stunned.
“I don’t understand why nothing is happening. It’s not a mistake. I did what I had to do. I did what the Bible said,” he said, reported New York Post. (here)
No, Keith, you don’t believe in God. You believed in Harold Camping. But this is what we will hear from many of them… they will blame God.
I’m sick, most likely a superflu. This is the second time in under a week that I’ve been ill. This time, it is much worse.
I blame my wife, who had to sleep with the window open. That’s how they were able to inject me with the experimental superbug aerosol . Actually, I don’t mean to say ‘they.’ Do doubt, it was Jim West.
