Harold Camping: Breach of Prophesy
Some are calling for a class action suit against Camping, because he wasted money on billboards while not one person was fed, housed, clothed, or had a pet de-fleed. A class action suit would set another dangerous precedent against free thought.
JESUS CALLED HAROLD CAMPING A LIAR 2000 YEARS AGO
I must point something out, (some things are just too obvious for an observation), one too-obvious thought remains unstated, and it is a point that would elude non-believers, Camping and his followers never read the book of Matthew! Look it up, Matthew 25:13, Jesus himself called Camping a liar.
Just my opinion, but if you haven’t made it through the first book in the New testament, you might not be able to accurately call yourself a Christian.
HE DIDN’T BELIEVE HIMSELF
Now, I see Camping’s organization is worth 72 million dollars. Now, why would he need donations for billboard ads, considering that saving any of his organization’s assets would be pointless? Perhaps he could have put it all on credit, after all, if he believed himself, would he need to pay any of it back?
THE RIGHT TO BE STUPID
Shouldn’t a class-action be summarily dismissed? How has Mr. Camping scammed anyone? He asked for money to put up billboards. He did so. What he put on the billboards was spurious at best, even to the moderately educated. Any Christian should know such a claim is false. As referenced earlier, Jesus said, no one can “know the day or the hour,” but Camping claimed to know both.
On the other hand, is it not our American birthright to invest in obvious scams, (such as US Treasuries), without any research. Do we, Americans, not have a right to be stupid and proud of it, and yes, even blog about it! Without this sacred right, what is the point of being an American?
We’ve lost our right to a voting-booth paper trail, fair election funding, humanly comprehensible legislation, principled politicians, personal privacy, financial privacy, private property rights, the ability to control our own bodies, private industry, the shuttle program, and the ability to buy high-quality American made goods– all gone within a few years.
Please, I beg, can we hang on to one last right: the right to make bad investments. It may be the only right we have left!
