Harold Camping Dies

Harold Camping, whom I satirized in 2011, when he predicted the end of the world on May 21, 2011 died Sunday, December 15th at 92 years of age. Yes, he got it wrong, and it may be necessary to highlight that fact in his death, but I do not believe it is necessary to revisit mocking him. Death always requires a gentle hand, and a calming voice. In his prophetic failure, I think there was even a positive model for those of us who get it wrong to follow, and there just might be a few of us who get it wrong - sometimes. ;-)

I have written more about it here.
