FAMILY RADIO Founder HAROLD CAMPING, who predicted that MAY 21st would bring the rapture of Christians from the Earth and begin a series of destruction for those left behind (NET NEWS 5/23), has suffered a stroke. THE SAN FRANCISCO EXAMINER reports, "CAMPING had a stroke after his radio program THURSDAY night and was taken to the hospital, according to an Internet message posted by CHARLIE MENUT, a regional manager for CAMPING's multimillion-dollar Christian radio network."
"I have no other details," MENUT wrote. "Please just pray for him. I’m sure we’ll be able to publicly update everyone [today]."
THE CHRISTIAN POST notes the, "89-year-old preacher was doing OK. His speech, however, appears to be slurred. 'The only thing that's affected is his speech,'" a neighbor told the paper.
