Glenn Beck’s “Stu” was listening:
Anyway, despite strong opposition from my wife, I waited until the top of the hour where I was hoping to hear the apocalypse addressed in some way. Unfortunately, no luck. However, it was nice to hear the announcer of a prerecorded show that was supposed to be airing after the apocalypse, previewing the episode that would be airing next week. (…)
On the other side, the Blaze has video of how Christians in the area reacted to it. Which was to walk to their building and try to find followers of Camping and console them. They don’t mock or insult them, they just point out that predictions of false teachings are all over the bible. They weren’t there to insult, but instead to help. Remember, Campings’s followers are a group of people who just spent their entire life savings on a scam artist/crazy person. There’s no benefit in recruitment, other than actually caring. In a way, this is an “I told you so” moment for Christians. They say that they actually care, and they actually do.
Out of all of this, that’s a nice moment of realizing how you’re probably supposed to react to something like this. Of course, mockery was fun too.
