Former basketball coach Chris Craig threatens Catholics, Mormons and DHS

A suspect who made threats against select Fort Collins faithful were bizarre attacks against Catholics and Mormons in allegedly declaring himself a “Islamic jihadist” driving in a car with the words “F*** DHS” scrawled on the side in spray paint.

Fort Collins Police Department alerted residents about a man who announced that Mormons and Catholics in the area “would be destroyed” within the next two weeks.

Authorities say no specific houses of worship were mentioned in the screed, but they alerted assorted religious organizations anyhow, including St. Joseph’s Catholic Church. Parishioners there were told about the threat during weekend services, while an officer stood vigil out front.

Craig has been questioned and reportedly announced that he was the Archangel Michael. He said everyone would know who he was in a couple of weeks.

Fort Collins police spokesman tells 7News there are no current plans to arrest Craig, since he has yet to commit something that qualifies as a crime.

Craig also posted thirty pages of hand-scrawled no tes declaring President Barack Obama to be the anti-Christ and calling former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney a “false prophet,” among many other things. Here’s a screen capture posted by Westword blog.
