Who’s Making Money Off 06-06-06?

Dear President Bush,

It turns out more than just the people in Hell are capitalizing on the upcoming date 06-06-06. Lots of people are making hay as the clock ticks over to that scary date. Tim LaHaye, co-author of the best selling Left Behind series is promoting his latest book in the series The Rapture with that date and “will you be ready?” A remake of the 1970’s movie The Omen opens that day. Do you recall little Damien wreaking his devil inspired havoc on the movie screen? That, Jaws and Halloween all primed my reptilian brain to rather high fear levels.

Evil is back and in a big way. Ann Coulter, the political pundit sees it around every corner. Her latest contribution Godless: The Church of Liberalism will hit the stands that day. If she would just calm down long enough, she might find the cause by looking in the mirror. As Franklin Roosevelt said “There is nothing to fear, but fear itself”.

Money has been historically been noted as the root of all evil. Today it has a free pass, as the Almighty blesses those in his favor with money, land, and power. Ministers today don’t have to give up anything to follow Jesus. The rich man can not only put a camel through the eye of the needle, he gets to go straight to heaven! Look at all the wealthy tele-evangelists swimming nightly in their pools of dough.

Capitalism and democracy are the new religion. Free markets and representative government solve the moral ills of the world. Yet, free markets do not provide for the people Jesus consistently administered to, the poor. And we recall who the Jews voted to be let out of jail instead of Jesus. It was the warrior Barabus. Was that prophetic, that Christian people would consistently choose warmakers over peacemakers? It appears the people were willing to take that gamble.

Speaking of betting, 06-06-06 has its own line in Vegas. The odds are extremely high the day will pass with no apocalypse. A $500 bet gets the winner a half-penny return. Should Beelzebub return in his most heinous form and incite the end of days a $100 bet nets the winner $10,000,000. The odds are similar to winning any state lottery. But will Satan donate the proceeds to education?

The calendar originally comes from the Earth’s movement in relation to the heavens. A noted astronomer shared his concerns about commercialism based on numbers and fear regarding the date 06-06-06. "What it really does is use some coincidence of some numbers for commercial gain. It's superstition and money when it comes down to it. And that's about as satanic as you can get." Does that mean Tim LaHaye’s making hay off the date with his new book is Satanic? Write me back with your thoughts.
