Jesus Is Coming Again — Again!

rapture6a00d8341c730253ef013489b3f1b0970c-800wiNo, this billboard is not advertising next summer’s Hollywood blockbuster. It’s advertising The Rapture, which according to more than 40 billboards around Nashville and eight other U.S. cities, is coming on May 21, 2011. (But that’s a Saturday! Parents and kids have soccer games on Saturday!) Predicting the end of the world is as old as Methuselah, but this latest campaign is even more shameless than usual. In other religious news, if you live in Kentucky do you know that your state government is backing a Biblical theme park with a full-size Noah’s Ark? Tax breaks for the Creationist park are expected to top $37 million. Think Kentucky will provide tax breaks for an Islamic attraction?
