Oh NOes!11ty! Harold Says We’re doomed, We’re all doomed… Again.
While it’s easy to poke fun at this guy, it’s also important to remember that he’s a hate filled anti-gay bigot whose message is no different than that of the Westboro Baptist hate church - To paraphrase: We are doomed because God hates Gays…
Family Radio Network preacher Harold Camping, whose prediction for the end of the world on May 21 misfired, now says that his new date of Oct. 21 looks like the real thing — well, probably.
“A lot of things we didn’t have quite right will probably be finished out on Oct. 21,” the 90-year-old Camping says in a message on his Family Radio Network website. “That looks like it will be at this point, looks like it will be the final end of everything.”
After the May 21 debacle, Camping initially said he was “flabbergasted,” but then announced that it had in fact been a “spiritual” End of the World, and that would culminate in the finally, final end on Oct. 21, Time reports.
Hundreds, if not thousands, of followers, including many who had left their jobs, had contributed money for billboards warning of the coming Doomsday. The Los Angeles Times reported that the worldwide campaign cost $100 million, including caravans and advertising, and was financed by the sale and swap of TV and radio stations.
