Doomsday Prophet Harold Camping Speaks Out: ‘A Really Tough Weekend’

(By Jonathon M. Seidl, The Blaze) - Harold Camping, the 89-year-old doomsday prophet who predicted the world would end this past Saturday, has been located and has issued a few words on his failed foresight. Understandably, he sounds a little depressed.

“It has been a really tough weekend,” Camping told the 'San Francisco Chronicle'.

“I’m looking for answers,” he added, explaining that he’s spending time in frequent prayer and consultations with friends.

In the end, however, he’s being tight-lipped. “But now I have nothing else to say,” he said, closing his door on the Chronicle. “I’ll be back to work Monday and will say more then.”

You can bet there will be a lot of people listening.
