Does anyone feel a little bit sorry for the people that blew their life savings preparing for the rapture?

On one hand, a fool and his money soon part, but on the other, I doubt anyone would seriously blow through their savings on something they questioned.

Either way, Sunday is gonna stink for a few people. LOL

  • Nope. I think they should have read their bibles and found out that this guy was a fraud. Oh hell, searched google.

  • If you happened to learn about Harold Camping’s May 21 rapture prediction from a placard on a subway car or bus shelter in New York City, the ad was probably funded by Robert Fitzpatrick – a 60-year-old, retired transit worker from Staten Island who invested his entire life savings of $140,000 into the campaign.

    “I’m trying to warn people about what’s coming,” Fitzpatrick told the New York Daily News. “People who have an understanding of end times have an obligation to warn everyone.”

    Fitzpatrick isn’t the only person to empty his bank account to warn others based on Camping’s prediction.

  • Sort of. How sad it would be to be so easily swayed by this. There are people who have lost a lot more because the believed in a false prophet, though. Remember Jones town?
