Apocalypse Preacher Harold Camping Recovering from Stroke
Harold Camping, the preacher who famously predicted the apocalypse would happen in May, has been moved to a nursing home to regain his strength after suffering a stroke on June 9.
Camping, 89, has twice predicted the rapture — first in 1994 and again this past May 21. To get the word out, he and his followers spent millions over seven years on billboards and ads about the impending Judgment Day and the end of the world that will supposedly occur in October.
Since being felled by the stroke, Camping’s Family Radio network has been playing repeats of his ‘Open Forum’ show and is currently working on finding interim programming while he recovers. No word yet on when — or if — his show will return to the airwaves.
