Billboards Warn Helena, MT: World Will Probably End Saturday

The world is ending Saturday, so, you probably don't have to do laundry!As you are no doubt aware thanks to the billboards popping up around Montana’s capital city (this one can be viewed  on the way back into town from Missoula), a worldwide earthquake will strike at 6 p.m. (Mountain Time) Saturday, May 21, alerting humanity that Judgment Day has begun. Or so says an evangelical Christian group, Family Radio.

Lots of people have prepared handy FAQ’s, where you  can find out why  this is happening, and whether or not there is a handy service that will take care the pets of those who are sucked up into heaven. (There is!)

Basically, here’s what will probably happen Saturday:

“…when we get to May 21 on the calendar in any city or country in the world, and the clock says about — this is based on other verses in the Bible — when the clock says about 6 p.m., there’s going to be this tremendous earthquake that’s going to make the last earthquake in Japan seem like nothing in comparison. And the whole world will be alerted that Judgment Day has begun.

And then it will follow the sun around for 24 hours. As each area of the world gets to that point of 6 p.m. on May 21, then it will happen there, and until it happens, the rest of the world will be standing far off and witnessing the horrible thing that is happening.”

When this happens, you’ll probably be home protecting your stuff from end of the world looting, but just in case the religious fundamentalists are wrong (which has never, ever happened before), put on your poker face and most bedazzled outfit and get yourself to Missoula’s FUSE at Deano’s Casino on Saturday, May 21, for a drag show to honor Lady Gaga and raise money for Pride Foundation, which works to connect and strengthen Montana’s gay rights movement. Doors opening at 9 p.m.  Cover is $10 for those ages 18 to 20, and $5 for those over 21. FUSE is located at 5813 W. Harrier Way, just off the Airport Exit in Missoula.  You can call (406) 546-7017 for more information.

The Pride Foundation is the third-largest LGBT grant maker in the nation, it has awarded more than $25 million in grants and scholarships in the Pacific Northwest, including more than $250,000 in Montana to equality-minded organizations and students.

  1. We’re gonna have to have lots of special election when we lose 1/3-1/2 of our State Legistlature, what’s the Rep. Party gonna do without Palin. Bachmann etc.

  2. What to wear? What to wear?

    I assuming that even if he doesn’t get raptured in time, harold camping won’t be attending the Deano event.

  4. Do I have to clean my house first??? Oh, wow, that’s deep.

  5. Okay, if the Bible guarantees it, and it doesn’t happen … just sayin.

    • I’m waiting to hear the news Sunday morning that an entire town of Coptic Christians in Ethiopia are missing. 144,000 believers vanished into thin air according to remaining resident witnesses.

  6. This same group is fighting with the NPR folks over a transmitter. So, they say the world is ending Saturday but they still want a transmitter for future use. Hmmm.

    Saturday is Bucking Horse Sale in Miles City and we are getting record-breaking rain so for bar owners around here, it IS the end of the world, if the not Rapture.

  7. No apocalypse is complete without 3″ nails and false eyelashes.

  8. Where can I get couple of tickets for the event?

  9. Cowgirl – can you help. I can’t get these links to work:

  10. That last link worked for me. But if it doesn’t work for you, go to draGAGA Missoula on facebook.

  11. Ive been hearing about this exciting event on Canadian Radio for the past two weeks, and as I told people the other day, the main attraction at the Miles City Bucking Horse Sale may be the only man whoes wine cellar is always full, Mr. Jesus Christ.

  12. Spell check: “Capitol” refers only to the building housing the seat of government. “Capital” refers to the town or city in which that building resides.

    This is important only to those of us who don’t believe in the rapture, of course.

  13. I am sorry but I have a scheduling conflict so I will need to take the Makeup Rapture.

  14. So… If this doesn’t happen do the fundamentalists have to admit that god created gay people as his children too?
    And will the live call in forum still be on until 8pm?

  15. Hey, I saw that billboard in San Diego…I had no idea they were advertising armageddon. I’m so getting out the good tequila for that.

  16. I read that they cashed out their life savings to buy these billboards across the u.s. Figuring that they wouldn’t need the money in heaven–some religions are just a giant scam.

  17. I think they should be required to sign over all their worldly goods to gays and pagans as an act of faith. After all, this is only the what, 4th? time this “hustler in God’s name” has been wrong.
    How many false prophets does it take to screw in a light bulb? None, they get their blind believers to do it for them…at a profit.

  18. All ye left-behind atheist, please forget not to send nice sympathetic greeting cardS of compassionate conservative condolence to all thy despondent Christianoid friends and relatives who awake on May 22 to find to their eternal grief that they were too insufficiently holy to be awarded one of the coveted, one-way tickets to Heaven on the Rapture Express of May 21. Their grief might even be suicidal when they fully realize that they are stuck down here with all the filthy Left-Behinded scum of the earth until the Third Coming of the Sonufa Virgin… sob

  19. Let me get this straight. On Saturday, around suppertime, all the buttheads who hate the Bill of Rights are gonna fly away and never be seen again?


    If the buttheads don’t go away on schedule I’m going to be very disappointed.

  20. The Rapture is a load of crap, sir (…er, or ma’am).

    Ask any of these religious fundamentalists if their God (and in the case of Christianity, savior, Jesus, being one with God) is omnipotent, omnipresent and omniscient. I’ve asked this question of a few members of monotheistic religions and I’ve always gotten a “yes” response.

    Please tell me, then, how can that which is omnipresent leave and come back? Isn’t everywhere just that, everywhere? And if everywhere, once again, how can something omnipresent leave and come back?

    I was told while being raised in my religion that God (and therefore Jesus) is omnipotent, omnipresent and omniscient…but it was a mystery. Nope, it’s actually very simple. It’s either true or false.

    If true, then this contradicts every fundamentalist belief. Where’s there a gap in an omnipresent God? Where’s hell? Where’s guilt? Where’s sin? Or is God split, with a “heaven” God and a “hell” God, duking it out for eternity? And which one is omnipotent? It seems to me that something omnipotent cannot possibly be challenged, without their “omnipotence” being somewhat iffy, as in their not really being omnipotent.

    If false, then why do religious fundamentalists, no matter what religion, keep professing that they DO believe that God is omnipotent, omnipresent and omniscient? Oh, right, it’s a myysssttery.

      Orky, in that case, would you mind watching my dogs for me in case I get raptured? You seem like a nice, intelligent, conscientous person……for an atheist that is!

    • Crap…just like everything else FOX and the right wing says and does, I’m all for it, I hope half of Congress, the Senate, Scott Walker, Glenn Beck, Limbaugh all fly away on Sat. Or maybe they’ll just disappear so everyone THINKS they’ve been raptured…..after all most of them claim to be on a first name basis with God

  21. Everybody who knows anything knows that it’s perfectly fine (ha!) to predict the end of the world, but you NEVER pick a date. If you do, your fraud will be exposed. How dumb do you have to be to pick a date. Remember all those Church Universal and Triumphant folks outside of Gardiner? They picked a date, and when it didn’t happen, their religion lost followers big time. They started threatening to subdivide that giant ranch they bought into 5 acre plots, and now look where we are.

  22. What time zone? 6PM Mountain?

  23. Apparently it’s going to happen at 6 PM local time, wherever you are on earth.

  24. Stupid is as stupid does. They still have their donation box open on their website, maybe they figure they need the cash to take with them in the rapture. Why do we pay any attention to these kinda kooks? Cause they’r called christians.

      Well, actually, they are a HUGE voting block too. As a perverse hobby, I spend a lot of time listening to AFVC Radio, the American Family Values Channel, and brother let me tell ya it is the wackiest, the most hate-filled, the most un-American, the most un-Christian group of wackos around. It is all hate all the time. Hate Obama, hate gays, hate liberals, hate Dems, all hate all the time. It’s truly incredible. It’s nothing but enless ranting against the government! And if one listens to it all day long, day after day, after awhile your brain turns to mush. It’s an absolutely incredible use of propaganda. Nazi German propaganda’s got nothing on these dudes.

      I guess that that’s why it’s important to pay attention to these folks. They are crazy, and they’re being incited to violence and insanity. And they are willing dupes in the corporate assualt on America. They should NOT be recieving any tax exempt status. And mainstream religions should be condemning this anti-Christianity posing as Christianity, for they defile Christianity with their fascist beliefs.

  25. Jesus said about Judgment Day, “You know not the day nor the hour.” He even said HE doesn’t know. So how do these guys get off saying they do?

  26. The world’s coming to an end Saturday? The Christian nut-jobs have been shouting this from the rooftops ad-infinitum, ad-nauseum forever.

    My reply to them? My favorite line from “Monty Python And The Holy Grail:”

  27. Hey all you nutjobs, how about donating all your worldly goods to the poor? Show wome real Christianity before you are gone.

  28. I thought that only people in Louisiana where leaving this Saturday?

  29. The end of the world is in less than 24 hours and I never learned how to properly roll a burrito.

    • Point of clarification: you’re not dying tomorrow if you’re not taken up. Just want to make that clear. Your dreams are still alive buddy.

  30. I have found proof that the end of the world is truly here. The Chinese have combined two of my favorite things, fast food and Ireland, into the grossest and most bizarre concoction the world has ever known. It’s not a joke people, and this is the proof:

  31. You mean the wahoos who said the world would end if we allowed the Mega-loads to come through the state were right? Oh man. That’s embarrassing.

  32. I believe in God but not the rapture, should I pay my parking tickets?

  33. Wow! Sometimes the sunny optimism of these folks just blows me away.
