A Wisconsin man pleaded guilty to threatening to assassinate Barack Obama in January, but said he was just trying to get word out about the apocalypse.
Forty-two-year-old Steven Joseph Christopher told U.S. District Judge Henry Wingate on Friday that he is the second coming of Christ, and wanted people to know that much of the world will be destroyed in 2012.
