I just can't make this stuff up. Another religious wacko gets the media's attention.
On 09-09-09 a bible-clutching hijacker tried to take over a plane headed to Cancun, Mexico. His name is Jose Mar Flores Pereira of Bolivia. His friends call him Crazy Flores. He wanted to talk to Mexico's president because god told him of an impending earthquake. He said he chose the date of the attack because it's the inverse of 6-6-6, and that the holy spirit accompanied him on his mission.
His wife said he just wanted to be listened to, to get the media's attention to tell them about a dangerous earthquake he claims will hit soon. (seems rather vague to me)
He used to be addicted to cocaine and has served jail time. When he got to Mexico a decade ago from Bolivia, he set about begging and thieving until a man took him to an evangelical church where he became a preacher. He's also recorded christian music on cd, in case you're interested.
As of yesterday he had yet to be charged with anything.
Seriously, WTF? god surely works in mysterious ways, huh?
