Because I dislike people -- from mediocre CEO's to General George Patton and his ilk --who use fear (however it is camouflaged) as a way of advancing their causes, I return to The Rapture that was predicted by Harold Camping earlier this year. When it didn't occur on May 21, Camping reconfigured his scenario on Monday at a press conference.
Camping seemed somewhat contrite about his error. He was not, however, about to publicly revise his own baseline thinking. In the meantime, I understand the donations to his radio empire have increased and some of his followers have been left in the lurch after quitting their jobs, selling their houses and doing whatever else anyone does when The Rapture is at hand.
Funny how what is shameful seldom occurs to those who might rightfully feel ashamed.
