    A closer look @ the m-shot of this fella above, reveals nothing but a lunatic parading as a prophet. This fella needs help not incarceration. There are many of his type out there in the society and they need true salvation. Consider what the scripture asserts – Many will say, Lord, Lord I cast out demons in your name, but the Lord will tell them “I do not know you.”
