Well lucky me, I live about 10 minutes from harold camping's main office for his family radio broadcasts. With him making so much fuss in the world, I
decided to take the opportunity to drive over there today at 5pm and see what was going on. I was happy because for once, I actually live close to a
"current event" lol. I did not find a single "believer", but instead hundreds of "opposers" and newscasts. What a sight to see! It even flowed into
the street and blocked passing cars. His front parking lot was loaded with different church groups, furious gay people, and newscasters going crazy
The church people had signs welcoming all of harold's followers to go to their church instead. All the gay people were mad because online, harold
directly wrote that gays were one of the reasons for judgement day (at least that's what the gay guy told me, I have no source to back that claim
One of the most funniest things there was that a bunch of people had miniature blow up dolls attached to balloons. At 6pm they all released their
dolls, and they "floated up to heaven". What an comical way to mock camping's belief that we were all going to ascend to heaven.
Picketers were all over the place with signs stating how harold was a liar. It was sort of a chaotic place to be.
All in all, Harold, nor any of his workers/followers, were anywhere to be found. None were standing by their firm belief that today was the day. It
was stated that some people drove by his house in Alameda (5 min away), only to see that all blinds were closed, as if he was hiding. Sadly, today
turned out to be more of a joke than anything.
Oh, and I also decided to let everyone know that I survived the rapture by writing it on my car! Santa stopped by as well.
And another thing, It's also important to note that while there, I learned that Harold paid all of his employess for taking off the 21st. Basically a
"paid vacation" day for them. Why would he pay them for a day that he was so sure that they'd be all going to heaven? hmm..
