    MIAMI, Florida (CNN) -- The minister has the number 666 tattooed on his arm.
    But Jose Luis de Jesus Miranda is not your typical minister. De Jesus, or "Daddy" as his thousands of followers call him, does not merely pray to God: He says he is God.
    "The spirit that is in me is the same spirit that was in Jesus of Nazareth," de Jesus says.
    De Jesus' claims of divinity have angered Christian leaders, who say he is a fake. Religious experts say he may be something much more dangerous, a cult leader who really believes he is God.

    Not saying I believe this guy, but what happens if God really does take a human form and goes public? Church leaders, absent a miracle or something, will ridicule him, as would the media. Next thing you know, you've got one angry diety on your hands.

    This one I got suckered in on... I thought "Man, if we start any more threads about Jones, we're going to start calling him Jason and he's going to have to work for AOL..."

    True. I don't remember Jesus sporting three Rolexes though.
