Sounds as wacky as the whole 'Left Behind' nonsense. I know there are folks who believe that Christians in power are working towards bringing about the 'Rapture', but really, there's no comparison.
I'm 100 times more concerned about the nutjobs in the Middle East bringing about THEIR armageddon. They've shown their lack of reagard for human life, even the lives of their fellow Muslims. These guys are SCARY.
