Shit happens. The older you get, the more often shit happens. So you have to try not to give a shit even when you do. Because, if you give too many shits, you've created your own shit creek and there's no way out other than swimming through the shit. Oh, and fuck.

If we were still living in Old Testament times, he would have been stoned with 12 pound rocks as a false prophet. A prophet of God must be 100%. I'd like to use duct tape. :wink:

That's one of those Old Testament laws overturned by the New Testament.

Yeah, grace (undeserved favor). Sometimes grace is inconvenient.

Heh, get this.
Charity Navigator. Your Guide to Intelligent Giving.
Family Radio, established in 1958 under its official name, Family Stations, aired its first broadcast on February 4, 1959, over radio station KEAR-FM in San Francisco. Family Radio is thoroughly committed to the person and salvation work of Jesus Christ as revealed in God's divine, infallible word, the Bible. We are a Christian nondenominational, educational organization dedicated to obeying our Lord's command to preach the Gospel to every creature. God has enabled the ministry to build a number of powerful AM and FM stations throughout the United States and around the world, a shortwave facility, and several smaller educational facilities and translators.
I can just imagine these clowns preaching the Gospel to ants, wasps and sea slugs. Still, they do rake in over $15 million a year...

In case you missed it:

Harold Camping Follower Shot Man Over Rapture Belief?
An Oregon man, believed to be a follower of Harold Camping and in jail for allegedly shooting a co-worker last week, wanted to punish the victim for mocking the California preacher’s rapture prophecy, emerging developments suggest...Dale O’Callaghan, shot his co-worker, 33-year-old Jerry Andrews, in the shoulder June 24, calling him “one of those Satanic” people, according to a sworn affidavit filed in Lane County Circuit Court by Eugene Police Detective Ben Hall.
But then there's this:
However, the suspect’s father, Ronald O’Callaghan, said his son was not a believer in Harold Camping.
So did he shoot the victim because he believes in the rapture, or because he's mentally unstable? (not saying there's a diference, mind you)

Update:

Harold Camping Admits He's Wrong About Doomsday Predictions
The Christian Post

Below is the full statement issued by Harold Camping and Family Radio in March 2012 admitting that the doomsday predictions were "wrong" and apologizing for their "incorrect and sinful" statement. Last year, Camping famously predicted that the Rapture would occur May 21, 2011 and the end of the world would occur Oct. 21, 2011.


An Important Letter from Mr. Camping - March 2012

THE BOARD OF FAMILY RADIO WISHES TO POST THE FOLLOWING LETTER FROM MR. CAMPING. IT WAS OUR WISH, OUT OF RESPECT FOR OUR LISTENERS, TO MAIL OUT THIS LETTER BEFORE POSTING IT TO THE WEB SITE. HOWEVER, BECAUSE IT WAS LEAKED TO THE INTERNET WITHOUT OUR AUTHORIZATION, WE HAVE MADE THE DECISION TO POST IT IMMEDIATELY TO AVOID CONFUSION. THIS LETTER WILL ALSO BE MAILED OUT TO OUR LISTENERS.

"God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged." Romans 3:4


Dear Family Radio Family,

In this time of confusion and turmoil, God's Word remains the only truth in which we can trust. God has shown us again the truth that He alone is true. In Romans 3:4 God declares: "Let God be true but every man a liar." Events within the last year have proven that no man can be fully trusted. Even the most sincere and zealous of us can be mistaken.

...

Yes, we humbly acknowledge we were wrong about the timing; yet though we were wrong God is still using the May 21 warning in a very mighty way. In the months following May 21 the Bible has, in some ways, come out from under the shadows and is now being discussed by all kinds of people who never before paid any attention to the Bible. We learn about this, for example, by the recent National Geographic articles concerning the King James Bible and the Apostles. Reading about and even discussing about the Bible can never be a bad thing, even if the Bible's authenticity is questioned or ridiculed. The world's attention has been called to the Bible.

...
So it's all good. :)
