  • Doomsayer confused as world doesn't end (Meet the man who spent his $150,000 savings to warn us)

    That's a Wrapture. When the world did not end at precisely 6 p.m. yesterday, Doomsday prophet Robert Fitzpatrick's fragile grasp on reality crumbled. "I don't understand why nothing is happening," said Fitzpatrick, flipping through his Bible for clues to why Rapture failed to show up on time. "It's not a mistake. I did what I had to do. I did what the Bible said," he said, looking increasingly disheveled and confused as he stood in Times Square before mocking crowds. A kooky Christian cult predicted that corpses would line the streets and deadly earthquakes would swallow up sinners beginning at...

    First, a religious group claims that the Rapture will happen this Saturday. Then this post mysteriously appears on the CDC’s official blog.If I see any locusts tomorrow, I’m barricading the door. There are all kinds of emergencies out there that we can prepare for. Take a zombie apocalypse for example. That’s right, I said z-o-m-b-i-e a-p-o-c-a-l-y-p-s-e. You may laugh now, but when it happens you’ll be happy you read this, and hey, maybe you’ll even learn a thing or two about how to prepare for a real emergency.We’ve all seen at least one movie about flesh-eating zombies taking over (my...

    The ending of the world has long been a matter of speculation. Many thought it was coming with the new millenium not so many years ago. It didnt. In the early days of the world people thought a solar eclipse meant the end of the world. It didnt. Between then and now the worlds end has been predicted over and over. Were still here. Time and time again the signs have been read and a prediction made. Time and time again the seers have been wrong. Jesus repeatedly refused to allow himself to be caught up in speculation, stating that...

    I thought the president would take a pass when I asked him about Donald Trumps rise to the top of the Republican field in my exclusive interview today. Far from it. He grabbed at the chance with a big smile saying he thinks the whole issue will be a problem for Republicans. I think that over the last two and a half years there's been an effort to go at me in a way that is politically expedient in the short-term for Republicans. But [it] creates, I think a problem for them when they want to actually run in...
  • Mugroot or Wild Wormwood: The meaning of Chernobyl and Bible [Ecumenical]

    In the Ukrainian Language, Chernobyl means mugroot or wild wormwood. In fifteen days, it will be the 25th Anniversary of the disaster in Chernobyl, Ukraine when that Nucler Reactor Complex caught on fire. From a Christian point of view, there was no word for radiation two thousand years ago. Could wormwood, which is found in the New Testament, be code word for radiation. Here is the passage in question from the book of Revelation/Apocalypse: (NIV) Revelation 8:10-11 When the third angel blew his trumpet, a large star burning like a torch fell from the sky. It fell on a third...

  • The New Song...Revelation 5

    And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of saints. And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.

  • FAITH MATTERS: The tsunami last week and the Apocalypse . . . eventually

    The Bible cautions believers against speculating about the date and time of the Apocalypse, although current world events and calamities seem to invite such conjecture. There are the uprisings in the Middle East. In Japan, the tsunami and earthquake disasters are fueling nuclear fears. And then the nuttiness of clergymen fitting Luthers definition of false clerics and schismatic spirits reminds us that Christ listed some signs of the looming end of times, for example the appearance of many bogus prophets. The Rev. Steve Fawler, part-time rector of St. Stephens Episcopal church in Ferguson, Missouri, might just fit this rubric. Fawler...

    Most people like to push thoughts about the end of the world to the back of their minds, hoping that the apocalypse, if it ever comes, will be a long way off. But for one group of not-so happy campers, doomsday is a lot sooner...May 21 to be precise. According to the predictions of the Family Radio ministry, on that date a massive earthquake will shake the world apart, littering the ground with 'many dead bodies'. I think this is Harold Camping's group again ...

    The Islamic Republic of Iran is run by evil megalomaniacs, starting with the supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. They are intent on hastening the arrival of the 12th Imam, the latest in the succession of imams believed by some Islamic Shiite fundamentalists to be the direct descendants of Prophet Muhammad and the carriers of his message on earth. The 12th Imam, named Muhammad al-Mahdi, is said to have been born in present-day Iraq in 869 AD and is still alive, waiting to come out of hiding at the appropriate time. Hence, his alternative name: the...

    This is a critical moment in the nations battle to dig itself out of debt and free itself from the iron grip of public union monopolies. As you know from reading this blog, the Wisconsin showdown has been a long time coming. I remind you that there are many brave workers exposing the corruption and costs of compulsory unionism. Todays syndicated column gives an overview of the Big Labor battle in Wisconsin now spreading to Ohio and Indiana, where the DNC/OFA are organizing the community of grievance-mongers kicking and screaming against overdue reforms.

    We're getting hammered by wind, but the snow appears to be done. Most of what fell here should be relocated to Oklahoma by morning. Some places are heavy snow, some are heavy winds, some both. Did anyone get a bad ice storm? So far, rural power here is holding up. Tough on the outdoor animals. Little birds are flitting around sideways, low to the ground. Hard to beat a wood stove on a night like this.

    SOMEONE wrote recently asking what my take is on the dead fish and birds showing up all over the world. First of all, this has been happening now in growing frequency over the past couple of years. Several species are suddenly "dying" in huge numbers. Is it the result of natural causes? Human invasion? ...Given where we are at in this time in human history; given the strong warnings issued from Heaven; given the powerful words of the Holy Fathers over this past century… and given the godless course that mankind has now pursued, I believe Scripture does indeed have...
