WingNutDaily serves up an extra helping of batsh*t nuttery
Wedding couples rush for 666 date: Officials notice ‘sinister’ surge in June 6 bookings to tie knot.
Alrighty then. WorldNetDaily is keeping tabs on those demonic Dutch folks that are heading to the altar of Satan to get married on June 6, 2006.
While June is traditionally a popular month for marriage ceremonies worldwide, officials in the Netherlands are noticing an unusual number of couples setting their wedding date for June 6, 2006, giving them an anniversary of 666, a number often associated with an end-time beast power of the Bible.
…While one explanation is that 666 would be an easy date to remember for anniversaries, others suggest a more sinister meaning.
For centuries, people have been intrigued by the number 666, the “number of the beast” from the Book of Revelation in the New Testament. Not only is it mentioned in Scripture, it has been associated with the Satanism, universal price codes and the game of roulette, as the numbers on the wheel add up to 666.
However, in its own reporting, all the hysteria might be over a misreading of the holy texts, blowing all the batsh*t crazies like themselves out of the window…
While many Bibles have footnotes saying the number translated from the original Greek could be 616, experts say new photographic evidence of an ancient fragment of papyrus from Revelation indeed indicates the number is 616, instead of 666.
A WingNutDaily reader even suggested last year that John Kerry was tied to “666”.
During his presidential campaign in Iowa today, Democrat John Kerry was surrounded by a sea of handheld signs displaying the number six on them.
…”The imagery of 666 appearing everywhere was too much to be ignored. I had to rewind my TIVO and shoot these photos of the TV screen.”
Please, someone cart these folks off to an institution before they hurt themselves.
