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.
