The Chinese government has arrested 1,000 individuals who follow what they are referring to as an “evil cult,” because the group, “Almighty God,” believes the world is ending tomorrow and that we should spend our remaining time on overthrowing the government.

The group has reportedly been distributing both printed and online information on the alleged “doomsday” the world will face on December 21st, 2012.

“Dec. 21 is approaching, and on that day half of the world’s good people will die, and all evil people will die out,” one pamphlets reads. “[O]nly if you join the Almighty God movement can you avoid death and be saved.”

The group believes that, starting Friday, there will be complete darkness on earth for three days, and no electrical items will work.

The group, founded in the 1980’s, believes that Jesus Christ has already returned to earth in the form of a woman.

The issue with these arrests is that Christians who do not want to overthrow the government are being grouped with these radicals, and these arrests of innocent people are not being checked.

“The local police cannot distinguish who is with Almighty God is who is [with] the house church groups,” Bob Fu of the Texas-based organization China Aid explained. “We have already received reports that members of house churches have been arrested.”

“This could be used as a pretext to crack down on legitimate house churches,” he warned.

Regardless of the legitimacy of the doomsday scenario, people are acting as if the world is ending.

The ‘Sharknado 2′ Trailer Proves That Not All Sequels Are Created Equal

Buckle your seatbelts, motherf*ckers. The trailer for “Sharknado 2″ is here. The Syfy original movie is hilariously titled “Sharknado 2: The Second One” and it looks balls-to-the-wall crazy. It’s so crazy, in fact, that the narrator in the trailer literally says “f*ck it” half way through, stops talking and lets the madness take hold. This […]
