Infamous Family Radio founder Harold Camping dies

Harold Camping (Huffington Post)The end for a doomsday prophet came quietly this past weekend. Harold Camping, the founder of Family Radio, and a man who made international news with his false predictions on the return of Christ, died Sunday.  The 92 year old is survived by his wife and children. Religion News Service:

Camping first predicted Jesus’ return in 1994, but his most recent forecasts gained national attention through advertisements and the Family Radio network of stations he founded. He warned that “judgment day” would occur in May 2011 and said the world would end in October 2011.

When his prophecies turned out to be false, he declared in March 2012 that his May 21 prediction had been “incorrect and sinful” and said his ministry would get out of the predictions business.

The ministry sold its prominent stations and laid off staffers, with assets dropping from $135 million in 2007 to $29.2 million in 2011.
