US Army veteran Marie Exley is on a mission – to tell the world that the countdown to Jesus’ return has begun, and that we have fewer than 137 days left before the mythical Son of God makes an apocalyptic reappearance.
And Exley warns us not to use the time left to party.
The numpty, a veteran of two deployments in Iraq, said:
A lot of people might think, ‘The end’s coming, let’s go party’. But we’re commanded by God to warn people. I wish I could just be like everybody else, but it’s so much better to know that when the end comes, you’ll be safe.
Exley, according to this report, is part of a lunatic movement of Christians loosely organised by radio broadcasts, websites, and independent churches who have convinced themselves that the end of the world will begin on May 21, 2011.
To get the word out, they’re using billboards, leaflets and other methods to get the message out in cities from Bridgeport, Connecticut to Little Rock, Arkansas. Mission groups are even travelling in countries from Latin America to Africa to spread the news outside the US.
In August, Exley left her home in Colorado Springs, Colorado, to work with the Oakland, California-based Family Radio Worldwide, the independent Christian ministry whose leader, a mad old prune called Harold Egbert Camping, has calculated the May 21 date based on his reading of the Bible.
She is organising travelling columns of vehicles carrying the message from city to city, “a logistics challenge that her military experience has helped solve”. The vehicles are scheduled to be in five North Carolina cities between now and the second week of January, but Exley will shortly be gone: overseas, where she hopes to eventually make it back to Iraq.
I don’t really have plans to come back. Time is short.
If May 21 passes and I’m still here, that means I wasn’t saved. Does that mean God’s word is inaccurate or untrue? Not at all.
