Christianist Plane highjacker "looked for God"

And even more evidence the opressive christian sharia is making its return. Oh where's the christian media?

A Bolivian religious fanatic who claimed he had a bomb briefly hijacked a jetliner from the beach resort of Cancun as it landed in Mexico City.

All passengers and the crew were later released unharmed.

The Bible-carrying hijacker used a juice can he said was a bomb to hold the 103 passengers and crew on the tarmac for more than an hour before masked police stormed the aircraft with guns drawn and escorted several handcuffed men away without firing a shot.

Police later said there was only one hijacker, and the other men aboard were detained because the suspect had told a flight attendant he had three accomplices. The others were quickly released.

Jose Flores, 44, later told police his three companions were "the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost".

Flores hijacked Aeromexico Flight 576 after a divine revelation, according to Public Safety Secretary Genaro Garcia Luna. Flores said the date - 9-9-09 - was the satanic number 666 turned upside down.

Flores, speaking to reporters after he was detained, said he took control of the aircraft with "a juice can... with some little lights I attached".

As the plane was landing, Flores stood up and showed his contraption to a flight attendant, Mr Garcia Luna said.

Mr Garcia Luna said Flores is a drug addict who was convicted of armed robbery in Bolivia, and has lived in Mexico for 17 years. Flores described himself as a pastor in southern Oaxaca state who had gone to Cancun to preach.

He is also a Christian music singer who in videos posted on YouTube sings of leaving drugs and finding God.
