I feel sort of sorry for this guy and for the many people like him. He’s been conned by Harold Camping and his silly cRapture myth. Robert Fitzpatrick spent $140,000 of his life savings to “warn” people about the Rapture. This was his retirement fund, money that he would live on for his old age and he needed to look after himself. Now he has nothing.
I know that I take a lot of glee in mocking Camping when the cRapture failed (predictably) to happen. It is a stupid and wasteful claim that deserved to fall flat on it’s face. Yet for his victims I have to keep some sympathy. Perhaps they will serve as a lesson to future gullible people. Here’s hoping anyway.
