This is Brother Nathanael. I have been seeing a lot of him since I moved to Summit County. He spends his mornings and evenings dressed like a priest, dancing in the median and singing about Jesus in Frisco, Colorado. Today, I asked about this dancing nut in a coffee shop near his favorite intersection and, with a smirk, was directed to look him up.
In the sixties, Nathanael was a hippie with a semi successful rock band, and his name was Milton Kapner. After that he became a successful industrial chemical salesman, until he gave it all up to become a monk. After leaving, or perhaps being forced to leave two monasteries, he apparently became paranoid over the idea that Walmart banned the use of the word Christmas, and that Jewish people are trying to take over the world. Apparently Neo-Nazis enjoy the "Brother's" efforts, as well. The title of this post is a link to one of his websites (where most of his anti-Jewish posts have been taken down), and here is another.
