The Rapture is Delayed
Well folks, here we are on May 22, 2011, the day AFTER the much ballyhooed END OF TIMES by Harold Camping, the 89 year old evangelical radio preacher. Nothing has been heard of Harold since his predicted 'end of times" didn't happen yesterday at 6 pm precisely. Perhaps Mr. Camping is coming up with yet another reason why God has decided not to destroy humankind as we know it and suck up into Heaven the Faithful while letting the rest of us who question religious teachings by charlatans like Mr. Camping to fend for ourselves on earth shaken by earthquakes, floods and volcanic fire and brimstone so confidently predicted by Mr. Camping and his brain dead evangelical followers. Or perhaps Mr. Camping is holding a video conference with God as I type this blog entry. Wherever Mr. Camping is holding up now, one would hope that he would provide a logical explanation why we are all still waiting around for the Rapture. Mr. Camping? Are you out there?
While we all await Mr. Camping's appearance and words let us consider another "End of the World" message from one of my all time favorite singers, Skeeter Davis. And oh, all of those of you who foolishly believed the latest Christian evangelical fraud and divested yourself of all of your earthly belongs in anticipation of the Rapture, sorry about that.
