may 21 – the end of the world!

According to Family Radio Worldwide, Judgement Day is coming on May 21, 2011. It will be ushered in with the Rapture, followed by the complete destruction of the Earth and the Universe on October 21, 2011.

I was extremely annoyed when I heard this news. My husband and I were driving to the lake on Friday, listening to the CBC radio show, The Current. This is SO going to ruin our Victoria Day Weekend!!!! Besides an opportunity to toast the grand Queen`s birthday, we Canadians LOVE our May long weekend. After a long and brutal winter we pull out the barbecues, or head to the cottages and camp-grounds. It is the unofficial start to summer, and you don`t mess with it.

Knowing the date of the last judgment is useful information to have. I should be grateful to Harold Camping and his California ministry for giving us the heads-up. The folks from Family Radio are kindly putting up billboards all across Canada and the USA. But, couldn`t they have chosen a better date? How about in February, when we`re all depressed and fed up of blizzards and the fricking cold weather. We might better appreciate a good rapture then.

We`ll be in Ottawa on May 21st, visiting dear friends and taking in the annual tulip festival. And, I would hazard a guess that the only Camping that most Canucks will have on their minds will involve tents, RVs and hot-dog roasts.

  1. As a Catholic, when I first saw these signs driving from Florida to North Carolina, the first thought I had was that a lot of people are going to put all Christians in the same category as this kook. I’m particularly annoyed that there is a big icon on the billboard with the words “The Bible guarantees it.” I don’t recall there being a date anywhere in the book in which May 21, 2011 was considered to be the end of days.

    Rarely do I agree with atheists on ridiculing fellow Christians, but I’ll make an exception in this case.
