Honduran Congress: Ban 'Antichrist' sect building

Associated Press/March 25, 2009

Tegucigalpa, Honduras - Honduran lawmakers have asked authorities to stop a religious group led by a man calling himself the "Antichrist" from constructing a spiritual center in the country's capital.

Jose Luis de Jesus Miranda is banned from entering Honduras, but his Growing in Grace Church has 20 offices in the Central American nation.

The Puerto Rican native has "666" tattooed on his forearm and preaches that sin and the devil do not exist.

The Honduran Congress unanimously voted Tuesday to ask authorities to prohibit the sect from constructing the center in Tegucigalpa.

Miranda founded Growing in Grace in 1986 and claims to have 2 million followers in 35 nations - most in Miami, where he lives, and Colombia.
