It took this woman in Raleigh painting up her white Subaru with the announcement that the end is very nigh -- and getting her picture in the paper -- that alerted us to the website where she's getting her information: WeCanKnow.com.
Now, just to get this straight, there are two key dates: Jesus is gonna take up into the sky all the elect (more on that below) on May 21st, 2011, and then on Oct. 21st, 2011, He's gonna crisp up all of us left-behind types.
The Elect: One has to question the sounding of a "warning," when there's not one thing that any of you sinners can do about saving yourself, because this WeCanKnow bunch believes in absolute predestination. Which is to say, your sorry ass was either "elected" or "unelected" long before your father's sperm and your mother's egg got introduced to one another.
There's not a thing you can do about it. Except maybe make a spectacle of yourself by painting up your Subaru. And speculate, of course, about whether you're one of The Elect (how would you know? A special tingling in your leg while singing "Amazing Grace"?) and about who else might be among the elect. For example, would I have to sing in the heavenly choir for eternity next to Michele Bachmann?
