(Newser) – Doomsday preacher Harold Camping, who incorrectly predicted that the rapture would come May 21, suffered a stroke Thursday night. Camping was taken from his Alameda home by ambulance to the hospital, where he remains, the Oakland Tribune reports. One neighbor who spoke with his wife says his speech is a bit slurred but he's otherwise "doing good." A manager at the 89-year-old Camping’s radio company asked for prayers and indicated a more detailed update could be expected today.
