Pharyngula

…the fear he fosters spreads around the world.

This woman, fearful of the end of the world, took a boxcutter to the throats of her two daughters, and then sliced her own throat. This is what religion encourages: fear based on imaginary terrors.

Here’s a man who committed suicide in Nairobi. Here’s a family torn by parents who gave away everything to Camping; the mother said a daughter would be left behind…at least she didn’t try to cut her throat.

I want to see Harold Camping prosecuted for bilking people out of their money, for destroying lives and families. I want to see his radio empire dismantled and the people who promoted his lies disgraced and ashamed.

It won’t happen.
