Many anti-gay Christian fundamentalists raptly awaited the rapture today, as discussed here on Bilerico. But since it doesn't seem to have happened, how about we re-brand the Rapture as 'Non-Judgment' Day?
As musician Jane Siberry recently said to Toronto's Globe and Mail,
To me that kind of separatist thinking is not at all what Jesus or other avatars taught. I don't give it any credence. It is the same kind of thinking that is intolerant toward any kind of difference. I'd like to change the term Judgment Day to Non-Separation Day ... no, Non-Judgment Day! That's better! I'm looking forward to when Non-Judgment Day comes.
There's even a facebook page deeming May 22nd 'Non-Judgment' Day, but I say we take back the original day itself.
At the very least, I'll be celebrating a different kind of rapture: my delight for Debbie Harry. "Don't stop, do punk rock!"
