    -------------------------Family Radio Sponsors Rapture Billboards Around The Country-------------------------

    FAMILY RADIO, a ministry of RADIO STATIONS INC headquartered in OAKLAND, CA, is connected to a series of billboards announcing the date of the rapture in cities across the country.

    According to THE TENNESSEAN, FAMILY RADIO's Founder HAROLD CAMPING predicted the billboard's message that MAY 21st, 2011 is the date of Jesus' return to earth.

    Nashville Billboards Claim Jesus Will Return May 21, 2011

    "At least one Nashville resident remains unconvinced. Sophie Boes is a manager at Whiskey Kitchen, the downtown restaurant closest to a Gulch billboard. She said she'd never seen a message like it."

    "Wow," she said. "Welcome to the South."

    But of that day and hour knows no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.

    But of that day and that hour knows no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father.

    Touche', jeffreykopp.

    And if Jesus Himself doesn't know His return date, no man does, either.

    Man, If I were Jesus, I KNOW I wouldn't want to return here anytime soon. I'd likely do a complete flush of the planet and start anew.

    They're wrong. He's already here. I have proof:

    The billboard shown in the photo accompanying the article says "He" is coming back -- it doesn't specify Jesus. This may be just an early "teaser" ad for a big evangelistic event of some kind. (If so, it's in rather poor taste, but I've seen worse.)

    From the Family Radio site:

    Judgment Day
    May 21, 2011
    The Bible Guarantees It

    Among the front page claims is the assertion that Gay Rights is a sign that the Apocalypse is near. They also quote a snippet of Ezekiel 33. Ah yes, now that is some classic Biblical boilerplate.

    For those not familiar with the passage, it basically outlines the destruction of the state of Israel in graphically violent terms. This part of the Bible has been used by the pious to justify everything from the Holocaust to acts of domestic terrorism to premeditated murder. The widely accepted axiom that "everyone outside my sect deserves to die" is rooted in this text.

    So, this giant religious network is dedicated to making sure that when May 21 rolls around, they will have done their best to stir the pot. Isn't it comforting to know that Family Radio serves more potential listeners in more languages than any other shortwave broadcaster from the United States?

    In a world that needs American voices of reason, this powerhouse of bigotry and batshit craziness gets blanket global coverage and tax-free revenue streams. God bless America.
