Anyone see the story on 60 Minures II last night about the "Left Behind Books" by Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins?http://www.armageddonbooks.com/behind.htmlThese publications are multi-million unit best sellers in the Fundamentalist Christian community.The key theme of the series is that God will come down from heaven some day soon and take all the "good" people to Heaven, "leaving behind" the non-believers so that "their eyes will melt in their sockets, their tongues will disintegrate, and their skin will fall off their bones." The authors mentioned by name that "Catholics, non-fundamentalist Protestants, Muslims, and of course, the Jews" are deserving of this fate. It sounded like Islamic Jihad. <grin>They've also produced several movies based on the books. http://movies.yahoo.com/shop?d=hv&id=1804383520&cf=info&intl=ushttp://movies.yahoo.com/shop?d=hv&id=1808430812&cf=info&intl=usThey played some clips from the movies. They had a sci-fi feel to them, kind of like an episode of the Twilight Zone.I hope Homeland Security is keeping an eye on these guys.intercst
