    I honestly can't understand how his house hasn't been burned to the ground at this point. He cost people their houses and savings by manipulating them via their spiritual beliefs and then shows zero responsibility.

    Even though I like to diss all of this, I genuinely feel compassion for anyone who learns things in life the expensive way. Sadly however, it remains true enough that some of the blame has to lie with those making such a conscious choice to listen to the man and take such things seriously. People still make their own choices in matters like this to which I sincerely hope they will become far wiser and more better off for it on the long run as a result. Albeit painful at present.

    Camping like anyone else creates his own karma for which he will need to address the fallout of his actions due to an obvious lack of foresight and unmindful actions.

    People get scammed all the time because they truly are desperate or are searching for an solution to whatever problem they have.
    Being in the fitness industry, people fall for stupid diets, supplements, exercise contraptions, and programs because they are desperate to lose weight or are trying to reach a physique without putting in the actual time and effort.
    I don't really feel for the parents, but I do for the kids who were totally reluctant to join their parents on their religious path.
    People who get scammed because of faith in anything that has NO REAL EVIDENCE to back it up may deserve it IMO because they refuse to look at it objectively.

    Yea Christians in other words if you give a guy in a pearly white suit who heals people in the name of Jesus (by touching their forehead and seeing them collapse) you are most likely a gullible fool

    I noticed that there aren't nearly as many billboards promoting this date as there were promoting May 21st. In fact, I haven't seen a single one.

    I wonder why that is?

    I wonder what Harold will say on October 22nd?

    Part of me thinks he'll pull the "Our prayers saved the world" stunt.

    One of these days, some goober is going to get the date right.

    Even a blind hog sometimes finds an acorn.
