Left Behind

14 July 2007

"Jesus merely raised one hand a few inches and a yawning chasm opened in the earth, stretching far and wide enough to swallow all of them. They tumbled in, howling and screeching, but their wailing was soon quashed and all was silent when the earth closed itself again."
-- From Glorious Appearing by Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins

"The best thing about the Left Behind books is the way the non-Christians get their guts pulled out by God."
-- 15-year old fundamentalist fan of the Left Behind series

Joe Bageant explains "What the 'Left Behind' Series Really Means" here. It's a bit long and overwrought, even invoking Godwin's Law, but those opening quotes certainly made me smile.
