I guess when your so deluded to think the world will end next May it’s not to far a leap in logic to think you can cheat and ask for an early demise.
MOSCOW – Members of a doomsday cult that believes the world will end next May and that barcodes are a sign of the Antichrist are holed up in a cave in southeast Russia and threaten to blow themselves up if the authorities try to eject them.
Yesterday, priests and officials were trying to talk to the 29 mainly female followers of “Father” Pyotr Kuznetsov, founder of the “True Russian Orthodox Church” sect.
Inside the cave near Nikoskoye, a village about 645km southeast of Moscow, the cult has stockpiled food and 450 litres of kerosene. The cave’s inhabitants include four children, one only 16 months old.
My question is why expend any resources on these nutcakes?
A valid argument can be made “for the sake of the children,” I suppose, but beyond that, to hell with them. Post one Russian guard to sound the alarm if any try to escape into the rational sane world and arm him with a 4 by 6 foot replica of a barcode.
That should keep them in check until their self-appointed date with the Grim Reaper in May.
