This shockingly large number comes from Matt Tuter, international projects manager at Family Radio--the California-based Christian organization that falsely predicted the world's end this past weekend--in an interview with the Christian Post.
The bulk of the $100 million, Tuter insists, came from selling off property (their KFTL television station and a FM station), fu although there appear plenty of people who donated their life savings to the cause. Tuter, whose family first got involved with the Family Radio organization when he was a baby, was also sure to clarify that "I remember when the organization was normal!" Apparently, this was before Harold Camping became a Doomsday prophet. Tuter adds that Camping "has actually made at least 10 predictions for the end times, though only a couple were announced publicly."
You’d think that after a few wrong predictions he’s learn that he’s not privy to information that even Jesus flatly stated he didn’t know while on earth.
$100,000,000?!?!? Holy shit!
Anyone that would send another penny to those frauds needs their head examined!
An old webpage about past doomsday predictions said that Camping predicted the end for 9/6/94, with the second coming on 9/27. Then he predicted it for: 9/29/94, 10/2/94, and 3/31/95. He gave up setting dates afterwards. Again, an OLD web page. He did set dates afterwards...
“the California-based Christian organization that falsely predicted the world’s end this past weekend—in an interview with the Christian Post. “
Falsely? What if the world has really ended and we’re in a....
What does he have for unpaid bills?
Maybe he meant the end of some world in some parallel universe? Dang, 94 — I was too young to make money off the fools, ooops, I mean help these happy to-be-raptured souls...
I hope this ass dies slowly. All I need is 100 grand and I could really do wonders with my house and get it the way I want (including a septic system that actually works). Meanwhile jerk offs like this waste millions.
Well heck, even a stopped clock will get it right sooner or later...
I've got a big new house and new car for sale if anyone is interested.
Now I have to listen to my wife go on and on and on!
I heard on the radio this morning that Camping announced his math was slightly off, and that the end will NOW occur on OCTOBER 21.
Wasn’t this a Simpson’s episode?
Stunning if true. Not sure if you can believe this Tuter guy - does sound a bit disgruntled.
Things are as bad as they seem. All he needs to do is get a bunch of black markers and change the date on the billboards and such to the new updated doomsday of Oct. 21.
Woohoo, that gives us another 5 months to max out our credit cards! Party hardy, yeehaw!
Probably. Hey! Maybe Camping's got a crayon shoved into his brain like Homer!
hey — I resent that remark. These are good folks who just need to give away all their money and worldly goods. I’ll cut you in for 43% if you help market these “friendly rapture-care” services :-P
Anyone that would send a penny to
those frauds any televangelist needs their head examined!
