Harold Camping's May 21 Rapture Teachings Deleted From Family Radio Website

May 23, 2011|5:50 pm

After Harold Camping's failed rapture prediction made headlines, Family Radio redesigned its website Monday and erased the soothsayer's writings that warn people of the May 21 Judgment Day.

Shortly after midnight Monday, Family Radio launched an overhaul of its website, removing any mention of Camping's end of the world predictions.

Gone is the prominent banner on Family Radio's homepage reading, "Judgment Day, May 21, 2011, The Bible Guarantees It!" Gone is the countdown clock showing how many days left until the predicted rapture.

And gone are the website links to Family Radio's written, video and audio materials on the May 21 Judgment Day.

Also removed from the main website is Camping's booklet with the provactive title, "Gay Pride: Planned by God as A Sign of the End."

Instead of an image of trumpet horns declaring the Last Day, the main page of the new Family Radio website now has a graphic showing the globe, the Family Radio logo wrapped around it, and the Great Commission verse from Mark 16:15, "Go ye into all the world and preach the Gospel unto every creature."

The "Literature" section of the new website menu still has some writings by Harold Camping, who works as a "volunteer" at the non-profit organization, but all his writings related to May 21 Judgment Day have been removed. The old materials can still be found on the current website server with a direct link.

All links pertaining to May 21 appeared to have been removed except for one underneath Family Radio's online radio player.

The Family Radio website, www.familyradio.com, was unstable throughout Monday.

Family Radio’s international projects manager Matt Tuter told The Christian Post Monday that the office is preparing to air a public statement on the failed May 21 judgment date at 5:30 p.m. PST on Monday.

Camping is expected to speak during the broadcast but it was not confirmed whether he would show up.
