Inadvertent theology

A couple months ago I posted about a wacky little rant cribbed from a rapture-oriented forum. The ranter assumed the authorial pose of a toddler throwing a temper tantrum, demanding rapture by god to leave this sinful existence.Judging by a comment I just received on the post, I stepped into the middle of a thorny theological debate:
So is the "day of God" (II Pet. 3:12) - which you admit is at least 1000 years ahead - also imminent because we're told to be "looking for" it? Also repeat the pretrib myths about the "Jewish wedding stages" and "Jewish feasts" (where's your "church/Israel dichotomy" now?)
I don't know, I completely forgot where I left it.
