Leading apocalypse theorist Harold Camping, 89, stepped up his campaign to alert people that the Rapture is certain to happen on Saturday May 21st, this year, revealing that he expects devastation to strike around 6pm that day (presumably one of the American time zones).
The influential leader of America’s Family Radio Network previously admitted miscalculating his sums when he similarly singled out November 6 1994 as the Day of Judgement, though this time insisted he’s definitely right.
“All the stealing, and the lying, and the wickedness and the sexual perversion that is going on in society is telling us something," Reverend Camping (apparently his real name) told the Independent. "So too is the gay pride movement. It was sent by God as a sign of the end."
Acid house inventor turned evangelical Christian (and new Skrufff collaborator) DJ Pierre was not so sure.
“Well. Let me say this. The Bible says no-one knows the Hour of the coming of Christ. So that is my guide. That is what I live by,” Pierre declared.
“No-one knows when the Rapture will begin or when Christ will return. We can only look at the signs and check them against what's predicted in the holy bible. That we can do. But to settle on date: That's not biblical to me. Live every day like it’s your last. That's my thing. Anyone can do that, saved or not,” he pointed out.
“And interestingly enough we actually have an AFRO ACID Glasgow event May 21st,” he added, “So it remains to be seen.”
