I normally refrain from saying such things, but this whole Harold Camping affair has my ire up. These people spent millions of dollars to convince hundreds of families to cash in their life savings, sell or give away their homes, quit their jobs and pull their kids out of school, because the Christian Judgment Day was coming (this past Saturday, as I'm sure you heard). Yesterday Camping was quoted as saying he was "flabbergasted" that the Rapture hadn't occured as he'd predicted, and that the end of the world was evidently not, in fact, imminent.
It boggles the mind.
While it may fairly be said that Camping and his brigade of fucktards don't represent the teaching of the mainline Christian churches, to me this is just one more example of the kind of insanity brought on again and again throughout history by the blind devotion espoused by Judeo-Christianity and Islam.
How long are we going to continue this strange devotion to bronze-age superstitions? How many people have to be "flabbergasted" by the absolute and complete failure of their belief system? When is the human race going to finally rise up out of this age of hocus-pokus self-delusion?
I'm calling for an end to this madness. I'm asking anyone who reads this and agrees with me to speak up and act out, to encourage as many people as possible to finally put an end to the silliness of Christianity and its many wierd little branches and versions and sub-lines in their daily lives. We can really live without this nonsense; in fact, I believe we can live better, more productive lives without it. If you're tired of being told, "Through God all things are possible" by people who couldn't find Montana on a map (of Montana), you're with me. Sorry to be so rude about it, but it's going to have to end sometime. Isn't it?
At long last, let's do something about it. The insanity isn't going to stop itself.
