Some SF Weekly readers had a hearty chuckle when we showed them a pie chart illustrating exactly what would happen if gays were allowed to tie the knot: No, the terrorists would not win and schools would not start teaching gay sex.

But apparently Family Radio, an Oakland-based station, says that this pending reality of same-sex marriage is nothing to laugh about. In fact, it says, it's a clear signal that the world is coming to an end.

The exact date: May 21, 2011.

In an interview with SF Weekly's managing editor, Alan Scherstuhl, published today,

Harold Camping, the president of Family Radio (it's not a

church, people), claims that he knows -- for a fact -- that the world will end on that day (we can't wait to call him on May 22). 

One surefire sign

of this impending doom, Camping says, is the gay rights movement that's unfolding (some

would say not fast enough) before our very eyes.
"God has given us an enormous amount of proof, like the gay pride

movement and the extraordinary amount of wickedness in the world," Camping tells Scherstuhl.

So if you were ever considering experimenting with the same sex, now is the time -- you have 17 days left.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
