Harold Camping Doubles Down

Harold CampingHarold Camping returned to his radio show for the first scheduled broadcast after his failed rapture prediction and...repeated his claim that the world will end on October 21, 2011.

As you'll remember, Camping initially said that the rapture would occur on May 21 to be followed by the end of the world on October 21. Instead of apologizing for all the harm he's caused, he decided to simply repeat the second half of his original claim.

Best of all, when he was questioned directly by reporters about whether he was to blame for the dire situations in which many of his followers now find themselves, Camping responded as follows:
I don't have any responsibility. I'm only teaching the Bible. I'm telling ... this is what the Bible says. I don't have spiritual rule over anybody ... except my wife as the head of the household.
I had previously thought that Camping might be delusional. Now I'm more inclined to suspect that he's a psychopath.
