More seriously, Freeman Hunt, on Facebook, is unhappy about all the hoopla: “Does anyone actually believe in this Rapture Saturday thing? I keep seeing references to Christians believing it, but I am a Christian, and I know a whole lot of Christians, and yet, I have not encountered a single person who believes this. I’m guessing there’s a small, nutty group somewhere that came up with this, and now it’s being used as a cudgel against regular Christians.” Or, as in my case, an excuse to procrastinate on grading. Plus, if you expect to be raptured away tomorrow, how about hitting my PayPal button today? You can’t take it with you!
But I’m predicting a Leon Festinger moment.
