Since there’s been a lot of coverage of very fanatical Muslims in the press recently, I thought it might be nice to have a little bit of balance by highlighting a completely insane Christian’s rant from 1993.
My favourite bit has got to be near the bottom, where we are told about “Pastor” Alamo’s booklet entitled ‘Messiah’, which apparently informs us of the 333 prophecies of Messiah in the Old Testament, and give the superb example of #219: “In the Second Coming, Jesus will have dreadlocks and a nose ring.”
You’ve got to giggle a bit at where, mid-rant about something else, he mentions tax evasion with the rapid follow-up “which I am not guilty of.” He was prosecuted for tax evasion the year after writing this article and spent six years in jail.
Truly, the idea that this man is still preaching hateful messages (and has access to guns) and is happily tolerated by legislators is very scary indeed. I’m not anti-Christian, I’m anti-‘complete nutters who will use anything to justify their own screwed up view of the world’. Really, this kind of person terrifies me.
But still, dreadlocks and a nose ring? That’s a funky Jesus, and he’s a-coming to judge us all (apparently).
