Judgment Day May 21st 2011
People holding signs and giving out pamphlets gathered in the parking lot of a McDonald's in Queens last Saturday to pose the simple question: "Have you heard the awesome news?" I approached one of them, a man with a big smile on his face, and he gave me a pamphlet. "THE END OF THE WORLD IS ALMOST HERE!" it read. "HOLY GOD WILL BRING JUDGEMENT DAY ON MAY 21, 2011." A few small children handed out pamphlets as well.
These demonstrators are members of the EBible Fellowship, a group that believes it has calculated the precise date of doomsday to May 21, 2011. For the past few months the group has traveled around the country in caravans to spread their news. When I told one of them that I wanted to document their group she laughed. "What's the point of it being published!"
