A few weeks back, Networks of Doom looked at preacherman Ronald Weinland and his Church of God Preparing for the Kingdom of God (COG-PKG). Weinland declares that he is the end-times prophet foretold in the Book of Revelations, and that May 27, 2012 will see the return of Jesus Christ to an Apocalypse-blasted Earth.
Holy crap…that’s this week!
So what’s the man up to?
Weinland has to be disappointed already, in that his prophecy is getting some minor nibbles from local (Cincinatti-area) media outlets this week, but nothing approaching the maelstrom of coverage fellow Doomsday-date-pinner-downer Harold Camping received just a year or two back. Even Weinland’s own web properties don’t seem to have been updated to reflect the fact that…hey…it’s kind of a big week here.
