Rapture: Colorado

  • 17 Comments
  • by: Ignatius O'Reilly

Tomorrow (May 21) is supposed to be the end of the world as we know it, say a bunch of evangelicals. Pols being a political site and me being a heathen, I had to wonder: What’s in Judgment Day for me? What are the politics of rapture in Colorado?

What if all the good people in Colorado Springs are whisked away? Who’s left behind? Is Doug Lamborn gone, or just his base? Does Hancock stay or go? Where’s Ted Haggard? If Bill Armstrong is going, can I have his car? Does this mean there are suddenly available tickets for the U2 concert tomorrow night at Mile High?

What’s your vision of Colorado after rapture?

  1. The huckster behind the current end-of-the-world snake oil has a Colorado connection. Harold Camping was born in Boulder. Thus, any and all discussion of this non-event is appropriate for COPols.

    But the real time and date we in Colorado should pay attention to is

    3am Saturday 21 May 2011

    On May 21, “starting in the Pacific Rim at around the 6 p.m. local time hour, in each time zone, there will be a great earthquake, such as has never been in the history of the Earth,” [Brian Haubert] says. The true Christian believers – he hopes he’s one of them – will be “raptured.” (as heard on NPR)

    Thus, (and emphasizing the awkward syntax) we will know at around the 3 a.m. local (Mountain Daylight) time hour whether any of our friends in Japan have been raptured. Hell, if the great earthquakes start in New Zealand, rather than Japan, we’ll have a head’s up about the end of the world “at around” midnight Friday. Time Zone Map

    That’s plenty of time to make peace with one’s maker (or purchase a peacemaker?), ask for forgiveness, make a few promises, quaff a few fine brews, catch a U2 concert, maybe even settle a few scores, before the rapture comes to a theater (of the absurd) near you.

    1. A majority of the Supremes and House (both Houses). Although it will be tough to rebuild a quorum, it can be done with special elections.  I am sure Biden can appoint some really good Progressive Justices.

      Locally, there will be no end to piles of clothes (at least if those who know and shove their version of religiosity on all who don’t give a damn go the way they expect). I would say burn it all however all the polyester, cotton and wool blends will foul the air.

      I will enjoy a decent bottle of beer or perhaps a good (very good) wine, or perhaps a double Stranahan’s Colorado Whiskey shot. I plan on watching Logan’s Run at the appointed hour.
