My Only Rapture Was A Hangover Yesterday
I wasn’t gonna go out on Saturday night but an 89-year-old evangelical preacher and radio host named Harold Camping predicted the RAPTURE would go down on Saturday (May 21st) and the world would come to an end, so I figured I should have a little fun just in case.What did Camping have to say yesterday when he, along with the rest of us, was still here to speak? He said he was, quote, “flabbergasted. It has been a really tough weekend, I’m looking for answers but now I have nothing else to say. I’ll be back to work Monday and will say more then.”
Preacher Crock-a-poo’s group, Family Radio, raised $100 million in donations over the past seven years based on his doomsday prediction. They hadn’t spent all of it by Saturday, but Camping insisted it wasn’t because they were hedging their bets, just that they didn’t want to be frivolous, and expected the money to burn up during the apocalypse.
This is Camping’s second failed Rapture prediction by the way. After his first one failed in 1994, he said he’d done the math wrong, which is how he arrived at the 2011 prediction. I think it’s safe to say there’s no need to party like it’s my last night on earth for his next one. Oh those crazy 89 yr old preachers and their predictions!
