  • Camping suffers a stroke

Just as Harold Camping, who let us down with his failed Rapture prediction last month, was fading from the news cycle, he resurfaced over the weekend after news broke that the Alameda preacher suffered a stroke.

The 89-year-old evangelical preacher reportedly had a stroke Thursday night after his radio broadcast and was taken to the hospital. The news was posted on the Family Radio Yahoo group message board this weekend.

Charlie Menut, a regional manager for Camping's Family Radio, the Oakland-based Christian radio network, said he had no other details to report on Camping's condition, but asked followers to "please just pray for him."

"I'm sure we'll be able to publicly update everyone," Menut wrote on the message board.
