Harold Camping: Scam Artist


Harold "The End Is Near So Send Me Your Money" Camping has decided that October 21st is the REAL, honest-to-Jeebus, no-foolin', cross-my-heart-you're-gonna-die END TIMES. But he'd prefer not to talk about it anymore (via The Daily What):
Commenting for the first time regarding his incorrect Rapture date, Family Radio co-founder Harold Camping said May 21 did actually herald the beginning of the End, but the reason you may have missed it is because it was “an invisible judgment day.” Apparently, humanity will not endure five months of fire and brimstone — instead, Earth will simply meet its unceremonious end on October 21. 
The multimillionaire (!!!) minister, who has been wrong at least once before, answered questions concerning the lack of Rapture on his radio show, “Open Forum.” Camping said he will speak no further to his revised prediction and would grant no additional interviews.
Camping goes on to say he has no plans to sell his house and other worldly possessions before October 21st because this is just another scam.

I pity the idiots who've made this homophobic snake oil salesman a rich man.

A fool and his money are soon parted....

I have heard that he urged his followers to put their pets down before the "rapture" so they would not be caught up in the aftermath...

In my mind, that makes him a mass murderer!

Ginger, maybe he wanted his followers to put their pets down so they wouldn't waste money on those 'After the rapture' pet care services. Money they saved there could be sent on to him. Just a thought...

Anyone stupid enough to believe him deserves what they get.
