It's the end of the world as we know it, and I'm feeling fine....

Except, it hasn't ended.  If you were a follower of Harold Camping, how foolish would you feel now?

It's people like Camping that make me hate fundamentalists, people who ask you to believe without question, without providing evidence.  More to the point, how many fundamentalist preachers ask their followers to bankroll them?  (And make themselves rich off their labours of their much poorer followers.)  A lot, particularly in the States.    Remember Jim and Tammy Bakker?  Their followers paid for solid gold taps in their bathroom.   And they aren't the only ones - Wikipedia has a long list of scandals, some financial, some sexual, where preachers have used and abused their positions of power.

- Pam (wondering how Camping will wriggle out of it this time.)
