Good riddance. That's 100 million people who no longer knock on my door and place goofy fishes on their cars :)
And yes, I know this guys a loon. But the people who follow him will just need a incomprehensibly worded excuse from the preacher and they'll still believe in mumbo jumbo.
I was thinking that myself Hazel! :) There will unfortunately be other religious loons left according to the fundies though, but at least some of the dumb will be gone.
There's a billboard with the same message a few miles away from me. I'll see if I can't drive up tomorrow to take a picture of it. If I can, I'll post it.
I'd love to join them in being Raptured and all, but I'll be too busy. Such a shame. If they'd let me know earlier, I could have been available, but, you know, May is such a busy month for me. Do you think if I pray really hard, god will reschedule to a date that works better for me? After all, he does say "ask and ye shall receive..."
In all seriousness, there are people who have quit their jobs and are living on their savings in such a way that they won't have any money left on the 22nd. The Washington Post article mentioned one couple who has done so - and they have a young daughter and the woman is pregnant with another child due in June.
I guess the angels and saints are able to deliver children, but then that child will automatically go to hell since it can't actually accept Jesus into its heart before it's pre-verbal. But of course the article and the parents didn't mention that.
Sorry, quick correction. The article that mentions the family with the two-year-old and the pregnant woman is on Unreasonable Faith, not the Washington Post. (Or, if it is mentioned in the Post article, that isn't where I originally saw it.)
The article I was referencing can be found here:
Sorry about that! I try to be better about my facts but sometimes they slip through.
