In New York, at least one of Camping's followers continued to hold out hope Judgment Day would come.

Retired Metropolitan Transportation Authority worker Robert Fitzpatrick, 60, said he spent more than $140,000 of his savings on subway posters and bus shelter advertisements warning of the May 21 Judgment Day.

World still ending on Oct. 21. May 21 was Judgment day. But it was a "spiritual judgment" not "physical." Not giving money back. Not taking any responsibility for followers' actions. Today 10:04 AM "The World Has Been Warned. My Has It Been Warned!" says Camping Camping says there will be no more billboards or street preaching, but the world is still ending Oct. 21. Today 10:05 AM "May 21 Was A Spiritual Coming, Where We Had Thought It Was a Spiritual Coming." "It won't be a five-month terrible difficulty...that we have learned," said Camping. Instead, he says, the world will end quickly on Oct. 21 without any build up. Today 10:12 AM Will Camping Give Donors Money Back or Help Them Out? "It is true that a few people have" quit jobs or depleted life savings to donate to Family Radio or spread his Judgment Day message, Camping says, but he says he never told people to do that. "There are people who for example that have given up their jobs...to work for Family Radio, given their time, and they do because they love the Lord." Today 10:14 AM Camping says again that Judgment Day Came, "It Was Just Spiritual." "The timing, the structures, the proofs, none of that has changed at all," says Camping. He is sticking to the numerology he used to determine the May 21 and Oct. 21 dates. "All I am is a humble teacher. I search the Bible. I search the Bible," he says. Today 10:25 AM Camping Tells Reporter that Humans are Not Capable of Understanding the Bible Reporter, after hearing Camping talk about his studies of the Bible, asks Camping if he is saying that "we as humans are not capable of understanding the Bible?" "You are correct," says Camping. He starts telling a story from the Bible about Saul. Huh? But you said "The Bible guarantees it." Today 10:29 AM Camping Doesn't Take Responsibility for Followers' Actions Reporter, speaking of a May 21 follower: "How do you feel about this woman who tried to take her life and her own daughters' life?" Camping hears incorrectly and thinks that somebody committed suicide. Camping: "She attempted to? Oh my that makes me feel better because death is terrible. It's contrary to all that the Bible teaches." Reporter: "Do you take any responsibility for that?" Camping says he does "not take responsibility. I don't have spiritual rule of anybody, except my wife," he chuckles. "Because as head of the household I have spiritual rule over my wife."

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...

Re: Countdown time. It's in the Bible, right?

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)

Re: Countdown time. It's in the Bible, right?

Oooh, just found another end times prediction on the Internet. And there's only a few days left until it arrives:

http://www.the-end.com/2008GodsFinalWitness/
The year 2008 marked the last of God’s warnings to mankind and the beginning in a countdown of the final three and one-half years of man’s self-rule that will end by May 27, 2012.

On December 14, 2008, the First Trumpet of the Seventh Seal of the Book of Revelation sounded, which announced the beginning collapse of the economy of the United States and great destruction that will follow. The next three trumpets will result in the total collapse of the United States, and once the Fifth Trumpet sounds the world will be thrust into WW III.

The Seven Trumpets of the Seventh Seal, as well as the Seven Thunders of the Book of Revelation (which the apostle John saw but was restricted from recording) are revealed in this book.

Many of the prophecies of the Seven Thunders are being fulfilled and will continue to increase in strength and frequency throughout this final three and one-half years of man's self-rule on earth.

. . .

As these events unfold, the world will increasingly become aware of the authenticity of the words in this book and realize that Ronald Weinland has been sent by God as His end-time prophet.

Yeah, I have seen banner ads for this piece of dumbfuckery all over the interwebz lately. Too bad it isn't getting quite the attention Camping's nonsense got, because frankly I got a little bit of amusement from the confused dejection and backpedaling that Camping and his followers expressed when the world failed to end according to his prediction. I am sure i would get just as much amusement from these clowns.

Alleged tax evasion

On November 10, 2011, Weinland was indicted by a Federal Grand Jury on charges of tax evasion. It is alleged that he understated his income on federal tax returns, used church funds for personal use and concealed the existence of a Swiss bank account.[14]. Weinland admits that church funds were placed in a bank account in Switzerland and that his was one of the two names on the account, but denies that there was any tax evasion, and states that all funds have since been repatriated to the United States and used for church advertising.[15] Weinland disclosed to the Church before that account was opened, in the sermon given on December 28, 2002 titled "Planning Ahead."[16]
