Old Coot In Utah Has Theory About Obama And Nuclear Warfare, So Listen Up
The mean cads at the Los Angeles Times recently discovered a crazy person's letter to the editor in some tiny, rural Utah newspaper and -- due to the meanness -- decided to travel all the way out to his lair so as to exploit the craziness for a big city feature. Some people in this world, right? And as a result, now we have to write about this poor old man and his hilarious theories about nuclear war, Obama, and the Mormons. Everyone is awful. Let's get to know the one good man in this world, Leeland Freeborn, a.k.a. the "Parowan Prophet."
Here is the Prophet's letter to Utah's St. George Spectrum , the one that caught the eye of the vulture at the LA Times . It is the fourth letter on this page , but we highly recommend that you read the others, especially the one about students getting lit on fire during school plays.
Readers remember me, also known by millions who have heard me on talk radio stations in the United States, across Canada, Ireland, Australia and Europe warning of World War III. They know me as the "Parowan Prophet."
I have passed 100,000 hits on my Web site with free survival information. Google has my site listed. Now I think that you should hear what my opinion about the Obama election is: that he will not be the next president.
I said on my home page in August that if he lost, to expect to see the "Riots" that 2 Peter 2: 13 tells us about. He didn't lose. But the story is not finished yet. I still think they may begin the riots before Christmas 2008 as I said.
Some of the news media will say that riots are justified. Now you know how much God is offended and just plain fed-up with our stupid excuses for not keeping all of his commandments in your Bible. Many readers will remember the many letters form me warning people.
Prepare now. We are downwind from Las Vegas. I hope you can survive.

It was enough time to sketch out his history -- a Mormon of substance, a father of 12, he had crashed his airplane in 1975 and fallen into a three-week coma, during which he went through "to the other side" and emerged a prophet.
Freeborn, now 66, took "a plural wife," as he put it, and parted ways with the church. He forfeited his wealth, spreading word of his prophecies. He appears to live now mainly on sales of newsletters and survival information packets advertised on his website.
Asked for examples of successful prophecies, he offered O.J. Simpson's murder acquittal and Al Gore's winning of the popular vote in 2000. But his core insight has been a repeated dream of seeing nuclear flashes to the west while shopping at a Wal-Mart during Christmas season.
So it's pretty clear that we will, in fact, get nuked before Christmas.
The LA Times vulture accepted an invitation to one of Leeland's weekly meetings, where it appeared he was losing potential followers, most likely due to the nonsense that was his entire gospel. And yet, we must praise the vulture for this lovely bit of writing:
The prophet's eyes reddened, and I could sense his frustration as he sized us up as two more likely nonsubscribers. As he dropped his head in contemplation, it occurred to me: How terrible it must be to believe what this man truly appears to believe, and yet have so few willing to listen.
In the storied history of crazy old coots that this blog has covered, we rarely feel as sympathetic as we do for Leeland "The Parowan Prophet" Freeborn.
