More on my previous post about the kooky end of the world preacher Howard Camping.
The fact is, we Canadians, a primarily secular, increasingly diverse, almost entirely urban citizenry made up of largely literate people, love this stuff. We love The Rapture! We love to read about it, we love to join Facebook groups about it (I’m “maybe attending” post-rapture looting). We might crack wise, we might just use it as an excuse to get awfully drunk and say things that’ll make us feel like the world ended that morning after all, but we do pay attention to it. (Speaking of morning, apparently Toronto Star columnist Antonia Zerbasias had a lovely post rapture breakfast – so lovely she posted a picture of it on the ‘Net here).
