Left Behind? I'll catch you up: the final Left Behind book is nigh... repent now!

Just wait til the movies start getting made. I wonder if Kofi Annan will sue for defamation.

Plastic: Sinners Repent! The End (Of The Left Behind Series) Is NIGH!: "Tens of thousands of foot soldiers dropped their weapons, grabbed their heads or their chests, fell to their knees, and writhed as they were invisibly sliced asunder. Their innards and entrails gushed to the desert floor, and as those around them turned to run, they too were slain, their blood pooling and rising in the unforgiving brightness of God.

Unsurprisingly, not all Christians are delighted with this. The president of New York's Union Theological Seminary has complained that the books 'misconstrue Revelation to mean that there are only two sides to every question, God's and the Devil's.'

"It's the same sort of vision of the world that is reflected in some of our recent presidential administrations, that there is the world of good and the world of evil, like 'the axis of evil' and 'the evil empire.' The enemies of America are the enemies of God. It is very dangerous, because it leads you to do things in the expectation that everyone who is against you is evil."
