Franklin Graham: Second Coming of Christ will be on YouTube, Twitter
Source: Raw Story
By David Edwards

"Social media could have a big part" in the Second Coming of Christ, evangelist Franklin Graham said in an interview that aired Sunday.

"I believe there's no question, I believe we're in the latter days of this age," Graham told ABC's Christiane Amanpour. "When I say latter days, could it be the last 100 years or the last 1,000 years or the last 6 months, I don't know, but the Bible, the things that the Bible predicts, earthquakes and famines, nation rising against nation, we see this happening with more frequency."

"So what will the Second Coming look like?" Amanpour wondered.

"Well, the bible says that every eye is going to see it. And, you know, I thought how is that going to happen? There's so many phones today. And just look at what's happening in Libya or Egypt and everybody has got their phone up, and everybody is taking recordings and posting it on YouTube and whatever and sending it to you or -- and they get shown around the world. I don't know but he said they'll be coming on the clouds and the world is going to moan. They're going to groan," Graham explained.

1. totally realistic reasoning
I can see it now, hoards of good and righteous Christians ascending to the heavens. All on their cell phones twittering and uploading their videos of it as they rise.

4. When Christ comes back
all the super religious people are not going to believe that its him and will probably kill him again.

6. Waffle much?
" I believe we're in the latter days of this age," Graham told ABC's Christiane Amanpour. "When I say latter days, could it be the last 100 years or the last 1,000 years or the last 6 months" - ok. 100 days, 100 years, 100 centuries, 100 millenia, you know, we are down to the last 100.

Don't tell me he doesn't know that he is a big fat liar.

24. And the natural conclusion after that: Jesus will appear in an Aphex Twin video.


Or has he already?
