I have a cellie who watches these End of Times TV evanglists sometimes, and it’s just amazing to me. Not him in particular, but other Christians I’ve ran into, and the people on these shows, seem actually excited about the destruction of the world and the torment of suffering of billions of people who don’t believe like they do. There’s just one word for it: sick.
Wait, one more word: moronic. Christians have been preaching the apocalypse from the very beginning of their religion. Anytime someting big and bad happened, they said THIS was the time. They did it when the Romans destroyed the temple, when the year 1000 came, when the Black Plague came, etc,; all of those people of those times thinking that Paul was talking about THEM when he said this generation wouldn’t die off before Jesus returned. He was clearly talking about his time, as all of the believers of that time thought. But who cares? He was wrong, just as every Christian would-be prophet for 2000 years has been wrong. At least the Mayan calender apocalypse was just a passing fad. Equally moronic, but a passing fad.
