Federal prosecutors say they are holding a Hawaiian man who allegedly threatened to attack Barrack Obama to prove the new U.S. president is the Antichrist.
According to a Secret Service affidavit, Mark Miyashiro told his psychiatrist that he wanted to test his theory by killing Obama and then seeing if he rose from the dead.
KITV-TV, Honolulu, said Wednesday that Miyashiro, 56, allegedly told the doctor he would carry out the attack with a slingshot and a marble; however, when agents checked his apartment they found a significantly more dangerous Russian assault rifle with a reference to the Bible passage Luke 11:21 carved into the stock.
Luke 11:21 reads, “When a stray man, fully armed, guards his own mansion, his property is safe.”
The affidavit, which was presented at a court hearing in Honolulu Tuesday, said Miyashiro didn’t recant statements about his alleged plot when agents confronted him.
KITV said Miyashiro’s neighbors in Kaneohe described him as volatile and somewhat scary.
