More People Believe In The Rapture Than You Think

The May 21 Rapture sure has been a source of humor for most people.  We laugh about it and equate Harold Camping with the stereotypical nut on the street corner with a "The End Is Coming Soon" sign.  What a loon!

Yet, according to the Pew Research Center, 41% say Jesus Christ will return in the next 40 years.  Forty-one percent.  That's not far off from the percentage of Americans who voted for John McCain in 2008. And nearly 80% of American Christians believe that Jesus will return to earth someday

So, as we joke about Saturday's Rapture, just remember that a whole hell of a lot of people agree with Camping that the Rapture is coming. They just can't agree on when it will happen.
