Harold Camping Apologizes For Lying to The Gullible

It may come as no shock to anyone that the world did NOT end on the predicted date of 10/21/11 by false prophet and charlatan Harold Camping. After making 20 years of false predictions, Camping has decided to throw in the towel and retire. Camping seemed merely "disappointed" by his failed predictions, now racked with bad feelings that he is no longer in a position to lead the ministry.  Most people who predict stuff like this all the time end up in a fancy white jacket in a padded room where medications are used to sedate and anesthetize.  I guess the millions he made exploiting those with a low IQ prevents him from going to a loony-bin.  

In an audio message posted on Camping's Family Radio website, the 90-year-old mental patient told his sheep that the Rapture did not occur October 21 because it was ultimately God's will. "He could have stopped everything if He had wanted to," he said. Yeah, just like a genie in a lamp, just rub it and make a wish and there you go. Maybe God doesn't like you, thought about that?

In addition, he admits that his calculations were wrong and tells his followers that "we should be very patient about this matter. At least in a minimal way we are learning to walk more and more humble before God." Well, we know your calculations were wrong, because the rapture didn't happen, the three times you claimed it would. I bet he did the budget for Herb Cain's 9-9-9 plan. How much patience do people need? 20 years of lies? 2000 years? He said he cracked the Bible code, whatever that means, and KNEW when the world was going to end, even if the Bible explictly states that there is no pre-tribulation rapture. If there were one, along with Jesus returning to fight the forces of the anti-christ described in Revelation, that would have Jesus being on earth 3 times, not twice. Pre-tribulation rapture is a theory that was based on the fantasy of 3 different people and just repeated as part of Protestant Judeo Christian myth. Learning about this isn't that difficult, it requires a simple internet search which takes all of 15 seconds.

Camping also apologized for a controversial comment saying that God had stopped saving people who did not believe in his May 21 spiritual judgment day predictions. Camping points out that believers must continue studying the Bible, praying, and remembering that God is in charge.

Where is his faith? He should have continued predicting the end of the world. He would eventually have gotten it right or have died. His mistake was making the date too soon. I hope the next "prophet" does a better job. maybe add some magic underwear or something.  

So, it seems that the post rapture looting is out, I really wanted some Louboutins for the low. Is he refunding the money that he fleeced from his gullible followers that sold their homes, liquidated their bank accounts and made complete fools of themselves on national television. Just like most other Christian fundamenta­list ministers, he is a gigantic fraud. If only the public would also recognize the other charlatans like Ted Haggard, Joel Osteen, Jerry Falwell, John Hagee, Jimmy Swaggart and the rest of the starting line up on the TBN (the blasphemy network) are just as phoney as Camping, this world would be a better place.  

The only good news in this comedy of errors is that the jerk is over 90 years of age and can hardly enjoy the fruits of his blasphemou­s endeavors. It should be a mortal sin to act or speak in such a way so as to pretend to be somehow officially connected with "God." On the other hand, there will always be suckers in this world who will buy any line of "bull" if it gives them hope.

Blasphemy­: the crime of assuming to oneself the rights or qualities of God.  

The next so called "prophet" needs to have rocks placed in his or her pocket and thrown in the ocean, if he or she drowns then they are false prophets. If they float, then they are prophets, but since we won't be sure of which deity they speak for, they should be burned at the stake. I got dibs on the marshmallows!

I have half a mind to sue this guy, we were promised a bunch of raptures and we never got one. I'm saddened, disappointed, shattered and not to mention raptureless.
