So the end of the world is here. The Huffington Post reported on the end of the world billboards that have appeared all over California and increasingly in other parts of the U.S. proclaiming May 21, 2011 as Judgement Day. Some Christian Fundamentalist made this prediction. According to the article these billboards are “courtesy’ of Harold Camping, an 89 year old who owns some radio stations and previously told everyone the world would end in 1994. It didn’t then. And I am guessing it won’t on May 21 which happens to be a Shabbat!
Don’t they know that God doesn’t work on Shabbat? And ending the world would take some doing.
Of course if you believe the Mayan calendar the world will come to an end on December 31, 2012. That is when the Mayan Calendar runs out.
I hope the world doesn’t end because on May 22 I am planning to go to Washington, D.C. for the Human Rights Campaign Clergy Call. A gathering of clergy to advocate on Capitol Hill for LGBT rights! There is so much work to do there so having a little more time to bring about the Messianic Era would be good!

I fully agree and would like to add that’s also the day Long Beach Pride begins and G-d can’t possibly be thinking of ending the world on one of the happiest times of the year. I would be so sad.
