Harold Camping Rapture-happy preacher to be probed for fraud? Christians urge Camping to quit, atheists want Congress to investigate

The failed prediction of Jesus to return to Earth over the weekend is prompting calls for the ouster of the Doomsday preacher and a congressional probe of his broadcasting network.

Harold Camping, 89, of Oakland-Calif.-based Family Radio made worldwide headlines in recent months for his prediction that Judgment Day was guaranteed to be May 21, 2011, prompting many believers to quit their regular jobs to help spread the warning.

It was not the first time Camping got the forecast wrong, having prognosticated the return of Jesus numerous times, including 1994.

"This guy is something else," Richard Myers, the administrator of abibleanswer.org told WND. "We are calling for the Family Radio board to remove him."

No matter when Jesus returns, learn the spectacular, ultimate destiny of mankind, something far more glorious than floating around on clouds in heaven. Read the best-selling "Shocked by the Bible: The Most Astonishing Facts You've Never Been Told," personally autographed by the author.

In a new posting on Myers' website, he says the board of directors of Family Radio is just as culpable as Camping in the spreading of erroneous information:

He is not able to spread these false doctrines without their direct involvement. There is a great responsibility resting on them to do what is right. By allowing Camping to continue on the air and on the board, they are guilty of all that Harold Camping is guilty of. That guilt increases daily. Read More

Harold Camping’s own people “did not believe The Rapture”

“My understanding is that they were soliciting money to help people understand the word of God,” Miniutti said, according to Media Bistro.

She added: “It’s unethical if people doing soliciting didn’t believe that the rapture wasn’t going to happen in the first place. ”

Now that it is pretty obvious that there is no truth to Harold Camping’s May 21-prediction, the self-proclaimed Bible Scholar has attempted to redeem himself by setting another date for another Judgment Day. Article>>>>
