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.
