Quote from: Jagella on April 17, 2020, 01:48:07 PMMany people don't seem to mind that the end, according to Christian beliefs, involves world-wide destruction and death. I must wonder if some people actually look forward to the apocalypse.

Quote from: SGOS on June 12, 2020, 05:08:39 AMI think some of them made it to the big screen. That was before anyone knew that shitty ham fisted Christian movies would become a genre. I rented one thinking it was going to be science fiction. It ended up with smiling Christians gathering in a church as the meteorite showers started raining down. And then a guy who doubted at the beginning of the movie suddenly got in his pickup and started speeding down the highway through the pelting meteorites and locust swarms and got back to the church where his brother happily welcomed him back to the church for their last night together. End of movie. They never got to the starvation, rat epidemics, and plagues. It was all strawberries and cream. We are saved!
