'Rapture' Pastor Harold Camping Suffers Stroke

Harold Camping, the 89-year-old Family Radio pastor who predicted that 'The Rapture' was coming on May 21 and then revised his date to October 21, suffered a stroke late last week, the Oakland Tribune reported:


"He had a stroke, it was on his right side," said the neighbor, who declined to give her name but said she and her husband helped and comforted Camping's wife, Shirley, as the drama unfolded Thursday night.

Her husband spoke again with Shirley Camping on Friday. "His speech appears to be a little bit slurred but otherwise he's OK," the neighbor said. "(Shirley) said he was doing good "... and the only thing that's affected is his speech."


Harold Camping Moves Goalpost: October 21 is the New Rapture


In a new interview with reporters, Family Radio broadcaster Harold Camping admits he was wrong about the doomsday date and sets a new date for The Rapture — October 21. Oh, and by the way, they've been saying that all along.


Through chatting with a friend over what he acknowledged was a very difficult weekend, it dawned on him that instead of the biblical Rapture in which the faithful would be swept up to the heavens, May 21 had instead been a "spiritual" Judgment Day, which places the entire world under Christ's judgment, he said.

The globe will be completely destroyed in five months, he said, when the apocalypse comes. But because God's judgment and salvation were completed on Saturday, there's no point in continuing to warn people about it, so his network will now just play Christian music and programs until the final end on Oct. 21.

The Rapture Is A Dud

The end of days predicted for today by anti-gay pastor and talk radio host Harold Camping has failed to arrive. But you knew that already, didn't you? Camping was also wrong about a similar prophecy he made in 1994.

The International Business Times has now made a prediction of their own: that the end is nigh for Camping's organization, Family Radio, estimated to be worth about $72 million.

"In all likelihood, his ministry will be destroyed...there is no escaping his failed 2011 'Doomsday' prediction. He painted himself into a corner by using words like 'guaranteed' and 'without any shadow of doubt.' His massive publicity campaign just made it worse."

I was able to access the Family Radio website just a bit ago but it's now inaccessible.

Taiwan's Next Media Animation gave the whole doomsday scenario the animation treatment. Watch the video, AFTER THE JUMP.
