In the spirit of full disclosure I want to go on record that I’m Christian. I was Baptized Catholic, confirmed as a Lutheran. Was a Mormon for a while and now am reading the Gnostic Gospels. God and the Devil, Good and Evil are very real in my life. I won’t debate you on it. I’ve seen too much. If you do not have Religion, I’ll pray for you and hope the Spirit moves you but I won’t ram it down your throat either.
That said…..apparently the World is ending Saturday. Damn, I just bought milk that expires on the 25th. Am I hunkered down doing a count down? No. The Apostles thought that the Rapture would happen in their lifetime. The Gnostic believe that it happened when Jesus appeared to Thomas. Do I think it will happen Saturday? No.
The faithful are throwing Rapture parties and giving away their worldly possessions. Some are responding to the Facebook Event invitation by clicking “Will be attending”.
The Progressives are planning to celebrate Zombie Day. On their Facebooks post Rapture looting parties are being planned.
For me, I’ve always kept it simple. We’re pretty good to go if Soloman’s Temple has been rebuilt. So if the Dome of the Rock has not been destroyed the Rapture ain’t coming. But Barry threw Israel under the bus today, so maybe we should start a prayer circle.

San Francisco to Ban Circumcisions
It’s up for the vote to make circumcision a $1000 fine. Supporters of the ban say male circumcision is a form of genital mutilation that is unnecessary, extremely painful and even dangerous. They say parents should not be able to force the decision on their young child.
