Cop killer Maurice Clemmons drove to New York in June to see local minister Bernard Jordan, claiming that he was Jesus Christ.
According to the New York Daily News, Clemmons, who was gunned down by a Seattle police officer on Tuesday, apparently "disturbed a June 13 prayer service, trying to rush the stage and yelling, and then approached Bishop Bernard Jordan at his gala 50th birthday banquet the next day."
Jordan, who runs a "cyber-ministry" and claims to be a prophet, says Clemmons told him he was Jesus Christ.
The Associated Press reports that Clemmons had also told Washington state investigators that he "had visions that he was Jesus Christ and the the world was on the verge of the apocalypse."
If he was killing FOOOORRRRRRRRRJesus
How do you know he wasnt? The facts seem to lead a reasonable person to infer that the man was religious whether or not he's beliefs were rational is not the point. He probably picked up religion in prison. I think its funny that every time someone commits a heinous actions, you all say "he's not one of us, he wasnt a Christian" but when a guy shoots someone or blows something up and he happens to subscribe to the Muslim religion then all of a sudden that one person represents the entire faith. I'm not saying YOU momof0304 think that way, because I dont recall what you wrote, but the prevailing sentiment was to blame the religion UNLESS the religion was Christianity (or a sect of Christianity).

Wow, mentally unstable for sure. Leads you to question how much leeway we give to mentally unstable people. I don't condone creepy institutions, but this is something that needs to be watched!
