Taken with my cellphone on Davenport Rd just before you go under the underpass of death that connects it to Dupont.
For your edification: Failed end of the world predictions from 30 CE to 1920 CE
So, to clarify, I do NOT think the world will end on May 21, 2011. In fact, I would be pretty pissed if it did. I would like to draw your attention to one thing:
It’s very blurry, I know (hey, the cellphone was free, and you get what you pay for!), but this billboard directs you to a website called FamilyRadio.com.
I have to say, for a nutty Christian website, the design is not half bad. Family Radio does appear to be an actual syndicated/short wave radio show/ministry/crank haven run by a dude called Harold Camping. While I disagree with Rev. Camping on, I assume, pretty much everything, I can’t stop him from ranting incoherently to anyone who’ll listen. I have to say, though…
What does predicting the End of the World have to do with Family?
“Family Radio” sounds like a show about parenting or fun family activities or family therapy. Not the platform of a crazy preacher who hates gays and thinks the world is about to end.
But I guess this is all of a piece with the Family Research Council, American Family Association, or Focus on the Family, whose titles make much more sense if you replace “Family” with “Patriarchy”.
