Ridiculous Ronald

Ronald Weinland is ridiculous. And no, it's not due to this picture of the false-prophet-to-be in his underwear choking his chicken.

During the James Whale interview in April, Ron Weinland prophelied that there would be nuclear detonations in port cities of the US 45-90 days after April 17. Yesterday, July 16, was that 90th day. No nuclear explosion in a port city – or any other city. Yet one more failed prophecy, one of many.

When the Insane Liar prepared to rescind his original timeline, he stated in a post on his blog: “If I have jumped the gun in a couple of interviews and interjected my own understanding into the timing of events, and have thereby been presumptuous, then I will repent and move forward.” He then stated in a sermon the next Saturday that he did interject his own understanding, but that he wasn’t presumptuous. Never mind that in an earlier sermon discussing the James Whale interview he indicated that God revealed things in that interview.

How ridiculous. Unfortunately, only some of his followers have recognized how ridiculous Weinland is.

Something negative did happen yesterday. The government of the Sindh province in Pakistan banned both of the False Prophet’s books, stating in its press release:

CONTROVERSIAL BOOKS CONFISCATED/BANNED
Karachi, July 15:
The Government of Sindh has banned the two highly controversial books titled “The Prophesied End Time” and “2008 God’s Final Witness” written by Ronald Weinland under section 99-A, Cr. P.C. 1998. the book contain material which may offend the sentiments of Muslims, Jews and Christian and is likely to create resentment among different religious groups leading to law & order problem in the country
The Government has ordered to confiscated all its copies wherever found in the open market with immediate effect and to take necessary legal action against the writer, publisher, distributors, sellers and others concerned, under the relevant law.


So Weinland has finally achieved some official recognition. Too bad he won't be extradited to Pakistan, but he does like to travel. Could Ron be persuaded to visit Pakistan to promote his books?

Me thinks ole Ron will view this announcement to be a positive one and will no doubt create his entire sermon this week around it which, I'm sure, he sees as prophetic.

Could this news explain the brief disappearance of the blog yesterday? Maybe the tech support decided to play it safe, but reinstated the blog, after they sought legal advice.

"The Government has ordered to confiscated all its copies wherever found in the open market with immediate effect and to take necessary legal action against the writer, publisher, distributors, sellers and others concerned, under the relevant law."

It is unfortunate that Pakistan can't extradite ILFPRW (and it likely would give him entirely too much cachet if they did), but I do wonder exactly what the government views as "necessary legal action"?

Looking at the quality of the grammar in the text of the press release, it was either translated by an American teenager or someone for whom English is not their first language. Considering the source, I'd lean towards the latter.

Having dealt with people who didn't grow up speaking English, I recognize that they don't always assign the same meaning to words that we do. So when they say "necessary" they might mean "possible".

And unless we can persuade the False Prophet to go on a book promotion tour in Pakistan, legal action won't be possible against him.
