Remember Eric ... our judgment time, the final Yom Kippur has been given. You are a liar, you're a Lucifer, you're a pig, a greedy (expletive deleted) pig. You're an abomination. You receive my bullets in your office. Remember they will be placed in your heads. You and your children are Lucifer's abominations.
And according to this report Leboon has made other threatening videos aimed Barack Obama, the movie studio behind the movie Babe (Babe, he tells us, was "created by Lucifer"), federal judges (with this warning: "You will lose your first born sons as you sleep. I did this to the Pharoah."), and white supremacist David Duke.
Now I want to ask in absolute seriousness: why is it suspected that Norman Leboon is off his beam? Why the psychiatric evaluation? Don't get me wrong - I do think people who believe God talks to them are somewhat delusional (I won't go so far as to say crazy, but there is something definitely abnormal about this type of thing).
My reasoning is as follows: I don't believe in an anthropomorphic deity that would be capable of talking to anyone. For that reason, I reject all alleged divine communications from all sources. I may be wrong, of course. But at least I'm consistent.
On the other hand, for all those who believe in a personal God, a God who is concerned about mankind and life's drama, who believe that God is "in control" of what is going on and has revealed his will to his creatures, I don't understand how they can accept one purported revelation and reject another.
It is worth noting that this God of Enoch is the God of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. And what separates these three groups is the issue of divine revelation. Christians believe that later prophets added to the revelations given to Moses and the prophets of Israel (Jews don't believe this), while Muslims believe that a later prophet, Muhammad, received additional revelations that superseded Christianity and Judaism (Jews and Christians don't believe this).
The whole trouble is, if you believe God did talk to your religion's forefathers, how can you deny he spoke to those of other religious traditions? This is a thorny problem that rarely gets an airing.
There no doubt are those who would agree with Leboon that Cantor is a greedy liar. Some would agree he is a pig. Would that make it easier to accept Leboon as a prophet of God?
The usual response is for a religious believer to say that their God wouldn't say this or that. "My God wouldn't tell a person to do that," we are told. But again, how do they know? If you believe any of the holy books of the big three religions, for example, you find God telling people to do a lot strange things that would be totally unacceptable according to modern ethical standards.
If indeed there is a God who speaks to man, it follows that no mental evaluation could possibly prove or disprove that. And who is to say that God does not keep giving additional revelations and that these revelations might not seem contradictory to prior revelations?
This whole thing is a very big door that once opened seems impossible to close again. But 'tis not a problem at all for my religious philosophy.
