Your latest dose of rapture-ready stupidity

Tim Lahaye is at it again, claiming that The Pope of Hope is bringing us closer to the much ballyhooed Apocalypse. Whatever one might say about Obama (I'll hold my fire for another time), I think it's safe to say that his presidency alone hardly merits more "the end is near" talk.

As an aside, a friend of mine was telling me about a book he read about the three thousand year history of predictions of the world's end in the Judeo-Christian traditions. Hopefully when time and finances permit, I'll track it down and give it a read. I've already been warned that it is very heavy on the jargon as it was not written for a lay audience.
