Other recent SF police shootings:
When I drove past Planned Parenthood this morning, day of the failed rapture, the usual Saturday abortion protest was missing. No “I REGRET LOST FATHERHOOD” sign on a stick. No bloody fetus pictures. Which was nice—I don't like to see bloody fetuses before I've had a latte. But then for a brief, real moment, I was a little scared. Where had the protesters gone?
I'm disappointed in the “news” 's portrayal pf the rapture believers. Sure, I've cracked a few jokes too, but really, I admire people who have a strong enough faith that they'll bet all their worldly possessions on their belief system. I don't share that faith, but that doesn't mean I need to disrespect it. As I write this, the college radio station is playing a montage of rapture pronouncements, revival-tent preachers, Johnny Cash speak-singing lines from Revelations, all of it over a looped techno beat, punctuated with cuckoo clock sounds, and zombie movie samples. Typical college radio production quality, but you can tell the students put a lot of work into it, finding two hours of samples and snippets and lining them up.
NPR's weekend news anchors were snorting and giggling over the non-event this morning, which seemed oddly smarmy. A lot of non-Christians have been mousetrap-coiled, waiting to point and laugh at a tiny, tiny minority of Christains who believed this mathematically-based prophecy. Tonight, a few hundred or thousand people are left questioning their beliefs and spiritual leaders. And some of them are broke and estranged from their families. That's not anything worth celebrating.
