There's an unrepentant religious fanatic on the loose...a man who believes, "The Antichrist is probably a Jew alive in Israel today." This man (we'll call him MG for now) is a wealthy fundamentalist who preaches, "Communism was the brainchild of German-Jewish intellectuals" and the “Almighty does not hear the prayer of a Jew."
A reactionary with a devoted following, MG has wondered aloud: "How can there be peace when drunkards, drug dealers, communists, atheists, New Age worshipers of Satan, secular humanists, oppressive dictators, greedy moneychangers, revolutionary assassins, adulterers, and homosexuals are on top?"
He believes his divine connections can re-direct hurricanes, he deems his religious rivals as "worse than the Nazis," and he fears giving equality to women because feminism is nothing more than a "socialist, anti-family political movement that encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft destroy capitalism and become lesbians."
When a fellow unrepentant religious fanatic blamed the 9/11 attacks on "the pagans and the abortionists and the feminists and the gays and the lesbians" in America, MG stated: "Well, I totally concur."
More recently, he declared: "When you get through you say, 'If I could just get a nuclear device inside Foggy Bottom [where the State Department's building is located]. I think that's the answer [We've] got to blow that thing up.'"
This was MG's second nuclear terror threat on Washington, DC. "Maybe we need a very small nuke thrown off on Foggy Bottom to shake things up," he said in June.
This man is not being pursued by Tom Ridge, the US military, or any US law enforcement agency. His violent threats have not provoked any multi-colored terror alerts. He is free to pursue his fanatical agenda...in fact, he contributed $10,000 to John Ashcroft's political action committee in 1998.
MG is, of course, Marion Gordon "Pat" Robertson.
Consider yourself warned...
