Family that quit their jobs on 'Rapture Day' react to being alive on May 22

Post by Guest on Mon May 23, 2011 12:37 am

First topic message reminder :

'Judgment Day' came and went on Saturday, and John Ramsey hasn't been able to sleep.

The 25-year-old Harrison, N.J. resident had rearranged his life in recent months to devote himself to spreading a fringe California preacher's prediction that May 21 would bring worldwide earthquakes and usher in a five-month period of misery before the world's destruction.

Like many of those convinced of the Rapture was pending, Ramsey quit his job, donated "a couple thousand" to Harold Camping's Family Radio network and convinced family members to join him to spread news of the Rapture on Manhattan streets.

His family nervously huddled in their apartment living room Saturday, holding their Bibles open, switching between CNN, Facebook and Google for news of quakes in the Pacific.

They cried. They hugged. They argued. But mostly, they waited. Nothing happened.

On Sunday, a dejected Ramsey said he faces a "mixed bag."

He has to find a new job. So does his mother. His 19-year-old brother, who had quit high school the year prior ("It's pointless to graduate," the brother had said), is thinking of re-enrolling or finding employment. Evil or Very Mad

Anybody that wants to send me their money, if they feel the world is coming to an end. I will be open to all and will not discriminate.

No refunds allowed.

O crap I was hoping to be out of debt by then and Halloween is my favorite time of the year.

Maybe I will be Moses this year and part the rapture?

Had my 2 cups of tea, don't feel any better about it Pamela. However, here is what I don't get. They have reported on many news outlets, this man has raised 72 million. Congress investigates everyone and every thing at our expense, except of course when it's scamming hopeless people out of their hard earned money. They learned nothing from the Jim Jones horror at all.

I agree. The greatest tragedies throughout history have always come when terrible mistakes of the past are forgotten, or ignored. We must always learn from mistakes or history will continue to repeat itself. A lesson which seems never to be learned.

It's terrible that one individual can control others' minds...and quite scary. Very sad that some really believed it, and also frustrating that he was allowed to continue with his "revelations" of doomsday. I totally agree with your thought about other investigations being done, yet this was allowed to go on and on. As I said, so many lessons have not been learned. That is also quite scary.

I've had my tea, too, and also feel no better. My mood the last day or so seems to match the dismal weather here. Hoping my disposition brightens when the sun returns. They say that may not happen for about a week.

I'm still emailing and calling as many as I can. Hoping for light at the end of the tunnel.

Whats so different between what this scam artist does when compared to the republican scam artists who also somehow control peoples minds (probably the same kind of ppl who quit their jobs over this).
