    This is for real….

    “On one of our relaxation days, whilst lying by the pool, I was chatting to God about some of our trip and asked if there had been angels traveling around with us. His answer to me was “Of course, you asked for them, so I sent them”. He then showed me a series of short pictures highlighting where the angels had been at particular points – for example angels either side of us as we stood on the train, angels in front and behind the night bus… As I lay there and wondered at the amazing favour we had been walking in, an angel walked up to me and just gave me a hug, then it sat there for quite some time, just hanging out – the best poolside experience I’ve ever had!”

    Crazy people like this are running about in Sri Lanka and it’s scary.

      Thanks Nimal. This is nothing short of disturbing. I’m assuming the children undergo an indoctrination process. Its disgusting

      This condition is called http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schizophrenia and is curable with proper treatment. However, when the schizophrenic imagery is consistent with the scripture of any major world religion, the patients are usually exempted from treatment and they rather start writing blogs about their spiritual experiences. This is nothing out of the ordinary, and well accepted normal behavior. Keep a safe distance from such known patients, and you will be fine.
