While Harold Camping sits safe with his millions
Wow, it’s been a while since my last page post. Thought this post on Scienceblogs was worth reading though, in light of the Rapture that never happened:
…the fear he fosters spreads around the world.
This woman, fearful of the end of the world, took a boxcutter to the throats of her two daughters, and then sliced her own throat. This is what religion encourages: fear based on imaginary terrors.
Here’s a man who committed suicide in Nairobi. Here’s a family torn by parents who gave away everything to Camping; the mother said a daughter would be left behind…at least she didn’t try to cut her throat.
I want to see Harold Camping prosecuted for bilking people out of their money, for destroying lives and families. I want to see his radio empire dismantled and the people who promoted his lies disgraced and ashamed.
It won’t happen.
People were spending their savings to place billboard ads about this crap. I’m sure we’ll never hear the whole story about who got bilked. This is a start though…
