At the south end of Morena Boulevard, seen by many thousands of drivers and passengers on I-5 north, a full-sized billboard declares that May 21, 2011, is Judgment Day for Christians.
Harold Camping is responsible for the billboard. Camping, head of an Oakland-based Christian ministry called Family Radio Worldwide, has announced that Earth and perhaps the entire universe as we know it will be destroyed on May 21, a little over a month after Easter and Passover. He predicted that “The end of the world is almost here!” (at familyradio.com) based on self-devised math computations derived from Bible prophecies.
According to the Mayan calendar, December 21, 2012, is specified as the day the world will end; a large number Christians believe that date to be Judgment Day.
