After the picture, I stopped to ask him how he knew the date. He was soft-spoken and friendly; apparently he missed the Angry Fire & Brimstone instruction the Times Square megaphone shouters have all attended. He would not elaborate, other than to give us a tract that he said would explain it all. Unfortunately it did not; it only said something to the effect that through studying the Bible it is apparent that the rapture will happen on May 21, 2011, and the Earth will be destroyed on October 21, 2011. (What happened to the 7 years of tribulation?)The tract was written in question and answer format, and one of the questions was "Should I go to church?"The answer: "Definitely not".
This picture made me laugh out loud.But the date made me stop. The earth is coming to an end on my birthday? Not on my watch! We're having a party. Spread the word.
Dear Birdie, if you're throwing a party, I don't know if it would be safer to be in attendance or as far away as possible!
Hahahaha— ...Wait a minute.
