Hopeful Sign of the Second Coming?

"Does the Bible Predict Nuclear War?" asks Pastor Jerry Johnston of the First Family Church in Overland Park, Kansas (a suburb of Kansas City).

He will explore this "curious" verse, 2 Peter 3:10:
But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up.

"Bring a pen," says Pastor Jerry, "it is going to be phenomenal night of learning!"

Red State Rabble noted that, in the wake of President Bush's endorsement of intelligent design, there was an uptick in the number of bloggers who wrote posts saying it was time for any sane person to move to Canada or New Zealand -- in fact, any reality based country would do.

For our part, we're going to stay and fight. We don't think it's possible to move far enough away from people who believe that nuclear war is a hopeful sign of the second coming of Christ. We certainly don't think these biblical literalists should be left alone and in charge of the world's largest arsenal of nuclear weapons.
