After the Super Bowl
Rollen wanted (and still wants) someone to spread his message of the upcoming Rapture. It's coming on Rosh Hashanah in October, 2005. That someone isn't me, however. It wasn't in 1980, when we first met, and it isn't now in 2005.
Rollen phoned and wrote constantly around the New Year, wanting someone to go to the NFL games to send the message. He wants a John 3:16 website. He's convinced that people will send tens of thousands of dollars to that website to carry on this campaign.
Like many who believe that the Rapture is nigh, Rollen has found plenty of "proof" in current world events. Yet he was also certain of Rosh Hashanah, 1980 and Rosh Hashanah, 1981 and Rosh Hashanah, 1982 and especially Rosh Hashanah, 1992 when he was found guilty of taking three hostages in a Los Angeles airport hotel.
Rollen's views are becoming extreme. (Maybe they have been all along, but either I brushed them off or they are evolving). He has to become careful that the state of California doesn't decide that Rainbow Man is where he needs to be. Prison.
I definately appreciate the man's zeal for our Lord, but I'm not sure about kidnapping.
Having said that, what if he is right?
More media slant.
