Going Out With A Bang: New Yorkers Plan Rapture Parties

NEW YORK (WCBS 880) – If the end of the world does come to an end Saturday, at least some New Yorkers will go out with a bang.

EXTRA: Your End-Of-The-World NYC Plans

Roberto Mendosa’s doors are open. He’s the owner of The Rapture Lounge. His Astoria bar couldn’t have a more apocalyptic name, but Mendosa says he almost missed his chance.

WCBS 880’s Alex Silverman reports: New Yorkers Plan Rapture Parties

“We’ve been planning it all day since yesterday because I didn’t know anything about this end of the world thing,” said Mendosa.

But since then, the phone hasn’t stopped ringing and his wheels haven’t stopped turning.

“We’re going to put some shoes around with some dry ice so it looks like people disappeared. I think its going to be funny,” he said.

Also hosting end-times parties around the country, New Jersey based American Atheists are hosting them at four cities.

The president of the group, David Silverman, says when the rapture revelry hits 6pm, he wants answers from the guy behind the prophesy.

“Disclose how much money he made off of this event and to donate that money to another charity,” said Silverman.

What are your plans for the rapture? Let us know in our comments section.

    If anything, Camping should return his millions to his followers who are now broke. But that’s okay – they’ll demand and get a bailout from the Government.

    Being that the IMF could tap into the FED at any one time, to take 100 billion dollars at a time and not disclose any information on what they do with it, and Bernanke is answerable to the superior IMF, haw does that make you feel? Personally, I cannot figure out how we let the Jewish Zionist “RACE” pull the wool over the U.S. Taxpayers eyes.

    I think Woodrow Wilson let THE FEDERAL RESERVE ACT pass with 3 votes on December 23. 1913, while the rest of congress and the senate mistakenly forgot lo leave “Sine Dai” and while they were home partying with their families on Christmas eve, they backstabbingly, snuck the bill through with three votes. What low life kind of people would do something like that? Banksters? Greedy power mongering Banksters

    Ron Paul For President 2012


    Before it ends America

    Nothing wil happen that is not in the Bible. As to the time, I would say .. no to an end.. but yes to an end of the wicked generation that has been around too long. Yes! The world will forego a reform, but the people indicated about being right are the Mayans. Look for December 21, 2012 and do believe. Don’t do like the days before Christ’s birth. People were expecting a BIG KING in a type of chariott of fire.. instead they all disbelieved when they heard that the promised one was laying on a dirty manger.

  11. Harlem Po'boy says:

    even at the proposed end of the world we still have big mouth bigots like bill burns…when we do meet our end and only God knows when , you mr. bigot will have a lot of explaining to due….by the way burn any crosses lately – hater.

    1. ALL AMERICAN says:
