According to wacked out devotees of the so-called Mayan Prophecy the world will come to an end on December 21, 2012. We Catholics of course believe that the world will end at the time of the second coming of Christ, and that Christ will come like a thief in the night on some date which is unknowable to us. For all I know it could be December 21 of this month, although I don’t think I will cancel my house and auto insurance as of that date. In the very unlikely event that the world does end, please come to TAC for our special end of the world blog posts:
1. How to make that emergency confession that you have been putting off lo these many years!
2. Remember, it is goats on the left, sheep on the right!
3. The impact of the world ending on the mid-term elections.
4. What will be the effect of the world ending on Obama’s job approval rating?
5. National Catholic Reporter claims that the end of the world is a papal conspiracy! Continue Reading
A crazed group is seeking cheap publicity by claiming that the world will end tomorrow. (No, I will not link to them or mention their name.) The end will come around 6:00 PM according to these loons which I assume is Pacific Standard Time since these mopes are based, where else?, in California. Since the time of Christ there have been constant confident predictions naming the date of the end of the world and the Second Coming, all in direct contradiction to Christ’s own words that He will come “like a thief in the night” and that no man will know the hour of His coming.
In the very unlikely event that tomorrow will see the end of the world, I do hope the New York Times does have the opportunity to get out one last edition with this oft-predicted headline: WORLD ENDS: WOMEN AND MINORITIES HARDEST HIT.
Update: Saturday, May 21, 2011: 8:45 PM Central Standard Time:
“With no sign of Judgment Day arriving as he had forecast, the 89-year-old California evangelical broadcaster and former civil engineer behind the pronouncement seemed to have gone silent on Saturday.”
Color me shocked! Shocked!
