Even America’s Heartland can’t take heart in predictions of YESTERDAY’S endtimes.
From The Oklahoman:
OAKLAND, Calif. — They spent months warning the world of the apocalypse, some giving away their belongings or draining savings accounts. And so they waited Saturday for the appointed hour to arrive.
When 6 p.m. came and went, and no extraordinary cataclysm occurred, Keith Bauer — who drove his family 3,000 miles from Maryland to California for the Rapture — took it in stride.
“I was trying to push the skepticism away because I believe in God,” he said outside the gated Oakland headquarters of Family Radio International, whose founder, Harold Camping, has been broadcasting the prediction for years. “I was hoping for it because I think heaven would be a lot better than this earth.”
Yeah but – this earth is what we’re stuck with.
