That problem aside, why is the world media suddenly alive with the Christian sounds of failed date forecaster Harold Camping?
I think there are two good reasons (and Camping’s May 21 Judgement Day call is not one of them):
- Worldwide coverage is the “reward” of Camping belonging to the cult of Christian Zionism. Christian Zionists believe the current apartheid political State of Israel is ordained of God. “Camping’s prophecy comes from numerological calculations based on his reading of the Bible, and he says global events like the 1948 founding of Israel confirm his math.”
- Camping’s moment of fame is similar to that of religious nutball “Burn a Koran Day” Rev. Terry Jones of Florida. We know that the mainstream media is owned by Zionists, so wouldn’t wide Zionist coverage of a “useful idiot” Christian help to discredit Christianity in general?
Harold Camping’s “rapture” is part of “the rapture is a racket” scheme and is best described by Dr. Barbara Rossing, professor at the Lutheran School of Theology in Chicago. “In place of healing, the Rapture proclaims escape. In place of Jesus’s blessing of peacemaking, the Rapture voyeuristically glorifies violence and war…”
So what if Pastor Harold Camping doesn’t win the lotto and doesn’t disappear in the rapture? “Then God is a liar,” says Tom Evans, spokesperson for May 21 Judgment Day.
Stay tuned, because I don’t think the good pastor will be “Camping In Canaan’s Land” tomorrow.
