Rapture - Evangelicals Heaven Bound

Still receiving applicants * Guns, violence and our youth
*
Read in Craig Unger's article in the December 2005 issue of Vanity Fair that "According to a Time/CNN poll from 2002, 59 percent of Americans believe the events in the book of Revelation will take place. There are as many as 70 million Evangelicals in the U.S.—about 25 percent of the population—attending more than 200,000 evangelical churches. Most of these churches are run by pastors who belong to conservative political organizations that make sure their flocks vote as a hard-right Republican bloc." That means the rest of us (41%) will be "left behind".

OK, I get the part about hard-right Republicans. The President is said to communicate with the almighty and Republicans have been busy bringing God into politics. It is hard to visualize the vengeful, intolerant God that they worship. Further into the article things become a little weird. One night, if you're awakened by a loud whooshing sound that would not be what the former presidential contender Ross Perot talked about. The sound would be of the Evangelicals being "caught up" -- swept up to heaven.
Perhaps Unger's article would persuade some of you to join the rapture movement before it is too late. If you are a Republican you'd get preference. In others the article might produce a yawn. Just think, heaven reserved for evangelical, Born Again Christians only. A few well-known ones: G.W. Bush, Pat Robertson, Ralph Reed, John Ashcroft.

Personally, I would be happy to see the Armageddon followers "vanish from the earth". I shall take my chances of being among the "left behind". Somehow the thought of spending eternity with a crowd of hard-right Republicans does not seem very appealing.

Guns are so lovely. Good for killing and for orgasms, maybe.

Yea, the bible talks about the members of the "religious right"

2 Peter 2
False Teachers and Their Destruction
1But there were also false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you. They will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the sovereign Lord who bought them—bringing swift destruction on themselves. 2Many will follow their shameful ways and will bring the way of truth into disrepute. 3In their greed these teachers will exploit you with stories they have made up. Their condemnation has long been hanging over them, and their destruction has not been sleeping.
