Quote# 53055

Now is a good time to think about stockpiling food, medicine, and the essentials. Just in case we are staying on Earth awhile and may have to go through some hard stuff. Maybe have a place to hide the kids..a secret hiding place as Corrie Ten Boom's family had for the Jews. Now is not the time to melt in despair. My husband and I have discussed a secret room when we build, maybe in the basement, at least to put the food we are going to load in there. We have grandkids we will want to protect. LET NOT YOUR HEART BE TROUBLED...

Stupidity for Jesus

Assuming you're talking about the Rapture, why would you hide?

Isn't God supposed to poof you up to heaven?

unless it is troubled by a bunch of kooky, paranoid delusions, that is...

You go right ahead and do like they did in the Dark Ages when they thought the end of the world was coming. Get rid of all your worldly goods and go hide in a cave and pray.
It'll come, you betcha, just wait it out.
Meanwhile the rest of us will go on as if nothing happened (or will happen).

good idea, all of you guys should just lock yourselves in your basement and wait for the rapture, go, do it now, hurry

Says the raving kook who is stockpiling food, toilet paper, antibiotics and weapons.

11/28/2008 6:52:35 PM


I agree with the previous comments.
Judy in Illinois should just hide away
So that the rest of us can lead full rich and happy lives.

Whee, it's Y2K again.

Step 1 in successfully going into hiding: Don't broadcast your plans to the entire world via the internet!

News flash: you missed the comet! Oh, sorry, wrong apocalyptic death cult. Just as crazy, though.

@Brain in a jar: my words before i got here

Um, if you can afford a lot of canned food, perhaps Second Harvest or your local homeless shelter might like it instead.

Not much fundy, perhaps this should be in CTSTDT.. but even then, wanting to have a secret room is not necesarily Conspiracy Theorist. Most of what Judy is posting is actually GOOD ideas.. without the rapture bullshit hovering in the context of her comment, of course.

At the engineers office where I work a colleague of mine once took a phone call.
It went:

Colleague: 'What's your name?'
Punter: 'John Connor'.
Colleague: 'Hold on, I'll just type that in...'
Rest of the office 'Nooooooo.......'

If you actually believe all this Rapture nonsense, then Matthew 25 says you're either a sheep or a goat. If you're a sheep, Jesus will say "Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world" and you won't need secret rooms. If you're a goat, Jesus will say "Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels" and all the secret rooms and food in the world won't help you.

My heart isn't troubled, but I do have a touch of dyspepsia.

11/28/2008 8:45:00 PM


Secret room maybe in the basement? Well, it isn't a secret anymore. While you guys are in hiding the rest of us will try to clean up the earth.

11/28/2008 8:59:04 PM


Putting by some stockplies of essentials is a good idea even though th rapture is a crock.

11/28/2008 9:06:05 PM


Is like fear of the Nuclear War all over again...

These people are just fucking sad.

11/28/2008 10:23:48 PM


And when the starving notice that you are still well fed, what do you think they will do?

Bet you didn't think of that angle.

Your stupid Rapture is unscriptural and will cause you nothing but trouble. If you must be a Christian, at least be part of a mainstream church instead of a lunatic fringe.

11/28/2008 10:24:43 PM


Yes! Grand idea! Take your fundie family, go down into your tribulation-shelter and never, EVER come out!

Yes, I have a backpack in the cupboard under the stairs with supplies for a few days in it and I live in the South East UK. I can evacuate my house in a minute and have enough to survive for a week assuming it's not midwinter. In my daytime job I prepare for emergencies, the nearby motorway being blocked by snow and stalled artics was a good example, we rounded up the drivers, ferried them to a sports centre and bedded them down for the night c/o bedding supplied by the Territorial Army.
You never know what might happen, I very much doubt it'll be the Rapture though.

Now is not the time to melt in despair.

Then why are you acting like this is WW3?

11/28/2008 11:59:50 PM


If one thinks that things are going to be so bad that they've decided hiding in a hole in the ground is a viable and sane alternative, wouldn't one be better off dead?
