I agree. The stupidity is nothing short of breathtaking in its scope and brazenness.
"How, then, are we to understand Jesus’ words about “this generation”? He evidently meant that the lives of the anointed who were on hand when the sign began to become evident in 1914 would overlap with the lives of other anointed ones who would see the start of the great tribulation."
Doesn't the use of the word "evidently" usually imply, er, evidence?
