Radio host says Rapture actually coming in October

ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) -- California preacher Harold Camping says his prophecy that the world would end was off by five months because Judgment Day actually will come on October 21.

The independent Christian radio host said Monday the apocalypse will come five months after May 21, the original date he predicted.

Camping says he felt so terrible when his doomsday prediction did not come true on Saturday that he left home and took refuge in a motel with his wife.

Awww, poor you, not having gone to heaven after duping your followers out of a lot of money. But I don't suppose you feel terrible enough to actually repay them, do you?

took refuge in a motel because he didn't wanna get banged out

Better go ahead and make a reservation for October 22nd, too.

You don't know when to quit do you? You don't think being made a fool of time and again is possibly some indication that you should knock off the doomsaying?

The end of the world will come in it's own time. I would think it would look better to whoever does evaluations in the afterlife for everyone to just act natural until it arrives.

Took refuge in a five-star carribean hotel maybe. Some call that a planned holiday

Hopefully, his followers will remember the saying:
"Fool me once, shame on you.Fool me twice, shame on me"
PS Not that this is not the third time, of course

This fucking moron should be in jail already.

Its interesting to note that:

- Harold Campings "prophecies" about May 21 proved to be totally wrong.
- The predictions how Harold Camping and his followers will behave after May 21 proved to be quite right.

Again, psychology wins against religious nonsense.

Well, I'll give him credit that his predictions are getting closer, although he's still about 4,500,000,000 years off.

Can't wait for October 22nd!

Wow these guys are sure making alot of party dates for us. It's such a great theme but I feel it's already old.

5/27/2011 4:53:20 AM


He went to a motel.... to avoid a lynch mob of followers.

5/27/2011 4:57:46 AM


Wait... his act of penance was spending the night in a motel with his wife? What can you do that is more fun than that?

EDIT: Oh, wait, I didn't realize that this guy was 89 years old. Never mind.

5/27/2011 4:59:03 AM



He lost all his credibility, especially with the billboards all over America.

Hell, he never had any credibility, cause Im not christian :)

5/27/2011 4:59:58 AM


Ran away, eh?

Coward. Why not stay and face those you misled into giving away their worldly good - fools that they were anyway!

"Felt bad", my ass. Hiding out from media and an angry mob of followers who'd given away their life savings, more like.

5/27/2011 5:19:01 AM



"You don't know when to quit do you? You don't think being made a fool of time and again is possibly some indication that you should knock off the doomsaying?"

He's not a fool. He's making money out of fools. He knows what he says is absolute fucking bullshit, but they don't. These fucking morons WILL fall for it again. Trust me.

oh good, i didnt get a chance to have a rapture party the 21st. had to work. maybe this time ill get to have that wild party. ;)

Perhaps financial supporters of Harold Camping are secretly quite pleased that he is 89 years old because they realize that their addiction will be over soon. But when Camping is dead, I wonder if the financial supporters will find a similar outlet in order to satisfy their cravings?

Mister Spak

Now what have we learned, Harry?

5/27/2011 5:26:36 AM


I see your game Camping. You'll keep pushing the rapture back until it fits up with Dec. 21, 2012.

5/27/2011 5:32:54 AM


hey, isn't doomsaying a sin? bearing false witness, maybe? (srsly, i'm not that good at finding sins, sinning is my forte, though)

can he be convicted by the way? so it's at least the end of HIS world?

on a totally unrelated note, however...
party at my house, october 21?

5/27/2011 5:36:22 AM

Zeus Almighty

Just in case, can I and some friends wait outside your door with a big pile of stones on the 22nd? False prophets and all that ...

5/27/2011 5:46:11 AM

Dear Mr. Camping,

Thank you for all you're doing to make Christians look like total nutjobs. You've done far more for us than you can ever imagine. Our numbers keep growing every day. Keep up the good work.

Unfuckingbelievable cojones dude.

To my friends here -- why does this fuckery piss me off so badly? Is it just because it's so blatantly batshit insane?
