But if he still has an audience, it doesn’t say much for the intelligence of his ‘followers.’
I’d like to sue Barky for saddling us with $1 trillion porkulus debt and falsely predicting unemployment would come down below 8%.
Taking advantage of human stupidity is disgusting but not illegal. Unfortunately there is no law that will protect people from their own ignorance.
Sued for what? Yelling that the movie theater was on fire when it was not and all the people had to do was simply look around for signs of smoke, etc. and see that the person yelling was wrong?
Having the ability to sue this idiot only proves that there are indeed idiots who will believe virtually anything and everything they are told and that when it is shown or proven that they acted in error, instead of taking SELF-RESPONSIBILITY for their CHOICEs, they seek to blame and/or sue the messenger or the person they believed such shit from.....! =.=
The Church of the Subgenius lasted for 20 years and predicted that aliens would land on July 5th, 1997 (what they called X-Day I think). They promised eternal salvation or triple your money back.
Seeing as how that was well over a decade ago (and the group existed going back to the 1970s with some celebrity members), what ever came from THEIR payout obligation (claiming it was “satire” or a “publicity stunt” isn’t good enough, they collected money for decades).
You can sue anybody for anything. Winning is another matter.
I had a front row seat reserved.
But I’m easy to get along with. If he issues me a rain check or a gift card, I’m cool with that.
Sued....? I think this man should be looking at prosecution and jail time at the least.
Charity Navigator isn’t much better than a scam. There are some incredibly effective and efficient charities out there that get relatively low ratings from this “charity evaluator”, while dip-wad frauds like Harold Camping get higher ratings... go figure.
I listened to him once. I think he owes me about $50. Where do I apply.
But he then get out of his contractual obligations by invoking the force majeure portion of his contract.
Well, can you sue someone who arranges a marriage and then the groom leaves the bride standing at the alter? You might muck around in that sort of precedent and find some grounds that might work, but even if you did, I don’t see how anyone would win anything they could actually get to court with. After all, Camping said all along it was a matter of faith, and on top of that had a track record of being wrong on the same topic before.
