Tyson Fury talks Armageddon

The End is Nigh says Tyson Fury, stating that Armageddon is coming and will be caused by homosexuality, abortion, and pedophilia.

Tyson Fury, a man never at a loss for words, has something important to tell you - the end of the world is coming. In another classically bizarre rant given to the Daily Mail, Fury predicts the apocalypse.

"We live in an evil world," said Fury. "The devil is very strong at the minute, very strong, and I believe the end is near. The bible tells me the end is near. The world tells me the end is near. Just a short few years, I reckon, away from being finished."

This kind of public proclamation makes me wonder why Fury even bothered saying he was looking to run for political office - with the world ending and all, seems kinda like a moot point.

"There are only three things that need to be accomplished before the devil comes home: one of them is homosexuality being legal in countries, one of them is abortion and the other one's paedophilia. Who would have thought in the 50s and 60s that those first two would be legalised?

"When I say paedophiles can be made legal, that sounds like crazy talk doesn't it? But back in the 50s and early 60s, for them first two to be made legal would have been looked on as a crazy man again. If I would have told you 120 years ago, that a 1000-tonne aeroplane is going to float through the sky, a piece of steel — ludicrous."

Fury may be kind of screwy, but he's under no illusion that he'll skate by without receiving some type of backlash for his statements. Even still,  that didn't prevent him from going on at length on the subject. In the end, he pretty much acknowledged as much.

"Maybe I'm going to get in trouble, maybe I'm going to have someone come here and try and assassinate me for saying it. They are powerful people. But he who practices evil will never prosper. They live for this world. I don't."

This, ladies and gentlemen, is Tyson Fury in a nutshell. No one can ever be certain what'll be the next thing to spew out of his mouth.
