A couple of interesting items relating to Harold Camping have made the news.
First up, a devoted follower of Camping recently died and left the bulk of her estate to Camping's Family Radio. Her own family, however, will receive next to nothing. I can't help but wonder what their last Thanksgiving together was like! It simply amazes me that nice Christian people are so gullible. Given human sinfulness, we are all prone to hearing what we want to hear. Woman Leaves Estate to Camping
An atheist group (the Freedom from Religion Foundation) wants to establish grounds for a public lawsuit against Family Radio for monetary damages related to "deceitful practices." For the litigation to proceed, the atheist group will need to prove that Camping committed fraud by not truly believing that Jesus would return on May 21! Good luck with that one! Say what you will about Camping, I have no doubt he believed his own nonsense. Could this be an ironic example of a publicity seeking organization (FFRF) seeking to exploit a fellow publicity seeker (Camping)? The story can be found here: Suing Camping for Fraud?
The next big day on the Camping calendar is October 21, when the corpses of the dead will be thrown out of their graves and scattered about like manure. Since May 21 was a "spiritual" day of judgment, then perhaps the dead will be scattered about in a "spiritual" way on October 21. What is "spiritual" manure? The mind can run with that one. Better not. Stay out of the Cemetery on October 21
Looks like October 20-21 will be a busy day for radio interviews and blogging. I'll mark my calendar. The man is shameless.
