Judgment Day: Save the Date

Billboard announcing the end of the world on Main Street East in Hamilton, Ontario (photo: Barry Gray, The Hamilton Spectator)

May 21, at about 6 pm. At that time, the righteous will be Raptured (finally!), while the rest of us will be left behind to burn in eternal hell fire clean up the mess.

I love my hometown, but when end-of-the-world-mania reaches a place like Hamilton, it’s so over.

    These billboards are in Saskatoon as well. See http://canadianatheist.com/2011/04/28/its-the-end-of-the-world-as-we-know-it/

    However, your changes improve the message. When the righteous leave, the world will be a better place.

    It may have been the righteous who removed CFI’s ad from two buses in Kelowna, B C: “There’s Probably No God, Now Stop Worrying and Enjoy Your Life.”

    Why am I embarrassed by living in Hamilton?

    It seems that every crackpot U.S. illogical dingbat ‘religulous’ cult seems to have a direct pipeline to the Greater Hamilton Area.

    I’m in favour of cross border shopping, but not cross border crazy.

    It doesn’t matter where you are. In the derelict, nastiest parts of the downtown, or in the very affluent ‘Burbs, or out in what remains of the farm land around the city. Here a cult, there a cult, everywhere a cult!

    Gullible’s travels!

      I don’t know if it’s necessary to be embarrassed about living in Hamilton — except, of course, for the poverty we allow to rust out the derelict industrial north-east end of town. I like the people from there more than I like the people I meet just about anywhere else. They deserve better.

      Is it really that bad with “cults”? If so, it’s news to me. I’ve noticed that billboard space is so cheap that evangelical churches are putting up tacky ads, which remind me of cheaply-printed religious pamphlets from the 1950s where the color scheme is various shades of brown. But cults, really?
