Harold Camping, the doomsday prophet, apologizes

Friday, March 9, 2012

imageThe Alameda preacher whose two predictions that the world would end last year garnered national attention but didn’t work out as he believed, has apologized for getting it wrong. In a letter Thursday to listeners of his Oakland-based evangelical Family Radio, Camping said that “events in the last year have proved that no man can be fully trusted. Even the most zealous of us can be mistaken . . . We humbly acknowledge we were wrong about the timing.”

Add: The 90-year-old minister, who first said the “rapture” would occur May 21, and when it didn’t, said it would happen Oct. 21, has scarcely been seen publicly since suffering a stroke last June.
