I first saw this story about the OC Smith crucifixion attack Saturday night. I was flipping channels and tuned in and when i saw the image of Smith bound and gagged with barbed wire, I immediately thought to myself (and I had never heard of this story before) was, "this looks like he did this to himself. Why did this guy do this to himself?" then as i watched the story, they were talking about how an unknown assailant did it. So i was rather confused because it looked to me like he did this... as the story went on, then they finally realized he did it. It is pretty obvious. But looking into his eyes as he tells the story, I can see this guy is mentally ill. And how did he know that the "JMJ" that was scraped into the homemade bomb meant "Jesus, Mary and Joseph"? Hmm? Anyway, too many people put too much clout into his words as medical examiner. It was as if he was deified. I suspect he testified falsely in many cases and it began to catch up with him, so he typed up those threatening letters to himself saying how God was telling him to end his evil ways of putting people on death row because every body lapped up anything he said. It was like two different personalities were coming against each other within himself. The whole thing about putting barbed wires around his head and around himself, and crucifying himself and pretending someone else crucified him is evident that he knows that he is deified by others, thus he was Christ.
