End Timers, Evil Doers And Dead Enders

Washington Post (08.04.06), via Carpetbagger:
"And here's another data point: Joel C. Rosenberg, who writes Christian apocalyptic fiction, told me in an interview this week that he was invited to a White House Bible study group last year to talk about current events and biblical prophecy. Rosenberg wouldn't say exactly what was discussed." White House Briefing -- News on President George W Bush and the Bush Administration
"'I can't tell you that the people that I spoke with agree with me, or believe that prophecy can really help you understand what will happen next in the Middle East, but I'm not surprised that they're intrigued.'" "Rosenberg -- like Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins, the authors of the phenomenally popular 'Left Behind' series -- writes fiction inspired by biblical prophecy about the apocalypse. The consistent theme is that certain current events presage the end times, the Rapture, and the return of Jesus Christ. Rosenberg's particular pitch to journalists is that his books come true." As in Rosenberg thinks his stuff isn't fiction. And the boys at the White House are taking him seriously. "Rosenberg says he got a call last year from a White House staffer. 'He said 'A lot of people over here are reading your novels, and they're intrigued that these things keep on happening. . . . Your novels keep foreshadowing actual coming events. . . . And so we're curious, how are you doing it? What's the secret? Why don't you come over and walk us through the story behind these novels?' So I did.'" Are we in for a shitstorm or what? These fucks are crazy.

Ja mon, if you're gonna be pontificating as such, do it over at your own place. We have bandwidth to conserve.

And please pardon us for saying so, but we don't think you have any more insight than those other fellers do.
