Hoc est corpus

Nick Kristof takes the Left Behind folks to task for being ridiculous and challenges them to a bet:

"if the events of the Apocalypse arrive in the next 10 years, then I'll donate $500 to the battle against the Antichrist; if it doesn't, you donate $500 to a charity of my choosing that fights poverty - and bigotry."

It's a bad bet for LaHaye and Jenkins. Presumably, they're planning on being raptured to Heaven when the 'pocalypse starts cooking. So, they won't be around to collect.
