A disturbing number of my friends and acquaintances are starting to subscribe to this theory: The “End of times” is coming, so why worry about the environment or a huge national debt? It’s all in God’s hands, so don’t bother. As a person who attends church on a regular basis, I see some forms of religion doing an awful lot of harm by promulgating/enabling these horrific attitudes, and it makes me ashamed. I wonder if the hugely popular “Left Behind” series of books has contributed to this line of thinking?For the rest of us living in the here and now, on Planet Earth: Vote! Damn it! Vote!
Mark in LA: If you get a chance, read the "Paperback Apocalypse: How the Church was Left Behind" by Bob Price. http://www.amazon.com/dp/1591025834?tag=mindvendor-20&camp=14573&creative=327641&linkCode=as1&creativeASIN=1591025834&adid=02Q7GRBMDGXHV45JC3W5&
