What’s a Sign of the End Times Today?

The constant cries of “this is a sign of the end times” from the premillenialist Christians is always a source of great amusement to me. So let’s spin the wheel and see what is prompting the end times today. *spins wheel* And the winner is…the gang shootout in Waco, Texas.

On yesterday’s program, Hagee added last weekend’s shootout between rival motorcycle gangs in Waco, Texas, to the list.

“One of the things that I believe is important to point out in this situation is that the Bible says that in the End Times, lawlessness would abound,” Hagee said. “When these kinds of events take place, one word seems to describe them: lawlessness.”

The fact that there has never been a single day in the entire history of human civilization without an event that could be called lawless? Mere details, not to be worried about. They’ve got some bullshit to sell, facts don’t matter.

    Hagee and Mark Blitz have set September 28th as the End of the World. The last of the four blood moons.

    So live it up for the summer. Spend all your money on fun stuff.

    Of course the Second Coming or Rapture won’t happen and September 19th will just be another day.

    Hagee is at least vague, being a competent conman. He says something will happen on September 28th. Which is absoutely true. Something has been happening every day on earth for 4.7 billion years.

    My hometown paper was End Times Today. It was a real downer. Even the comics page.

    John Hagee explains how and why the world will end in 2012

    dwindlinginunbelief .blogspot .com/…/john-hagee-explains-how-and-why…

    Mar 27, 2012 – John Hagee explains it all in less that 20 minutes. (See video below.)

    John Hagee has already predicted The End once and not so long ago. 2012.

    Hard to say which one of the vaguely humanoid toad fundie leaders holds the record for most false End Time prophecies. Pat Robertson was wrong once, Harold Camping was wrong three times, Glenn Beck is always wrong, etc..

    PS If you miss the Apocalypse in September, don’t worry about it. Apocalypses are like buses. There is always another one coming along.

    So, nothing but HI & Lois and The Family Circus as far as the eye could see?

    The sun rose again this morning – must be an omen.

    Well it is. And a good one. It means you are still alive.

    Ironically, the End Times do exist. Harold Camping’s world ended a few years ago. When he died. And John Hagee will be right one of these days as well.

    Guess you missed the end of the world then Matty, it started 2 September, 1984.

    Lawlessness is way down historically though. As is sexual immorality, “false Christs,” war, famine, Christian persecutions, and, of course, the Roman Empire.

    Did you know that zealous Jews want to rebuild the temple in Jerusalem, and that some Christians want to help them do it so that it can be destroyed yet again hence making Jesus’ prophecy that he’ll return right after the Romans destroy the temple correct? I’m not going to worry about the likes of Hagee until that’s happened.

    Wait a minute. 192 people got arrested and are facing trial. That’s not lawlessness, that’s law enforcement at its best.

    I wish. It was mostly the letters section from Marmaduke, that strip with the lady who thinks she’s fat (punchline: “Arghh!!”), and The Daddy Left and Started a New Family Circus.

    So Matthew Hagee is just joining his father into the family business of fleecing the credulous with end times horseshit–the master grifter teaching his son the ropes of the TV preacher biz

    Above any natural or gang related nonsense…

    I am pretty sure this will convince the rapture bunnies that the end times really are nigh….The apoplexy in the RCC would be a marvelous sight to see…

    Roll on the SCOTUS decision..let rationality reign…for a change!

    All I can say is uisge beatha” (Irish pronounciation: Ishka Baha) all around!

    I saw a man holding a sign that said, The End Is Near.

    And the next day he wasn’t there! Spooky.
