Nna Alpha Onuoha.
A Satan-obsessed airport security screener who allegedly made creepy comments to a teen traveler in June is behind bars on suspicion of calling in threats to LAX and taping a menacing note inside his closet invoking the Sept. 11 anniversary, FBI officials said. Nna Alpha Onuoha, 29, worked for the TSA for seven years but was recently suspended after Los Angeles high school student Sarina Frauenfelder accused him of making inappropriate comments about her apparel as she passed through security June 16, a well-placed source told the Daily News. “You’re only 15, cover yourself,” Onuoha allegedly said, according to a blog post by Frauenfelder’s dad, the founder of the popular blog Boing Boing. Onuoha, a Nigerian national who’s now a naturalized U.S. citizen, was disgruntled over the resulting disciplinary action and flipped out Tuesday with a series of threats against LAX, officials said.

Pope Francis has written a long, open letter to the founder of La Repubblica newspaper, Eugenio Scalfari, stating that non-believers would be forgiven by God if they followed their consciences. Responding to a list of questions published in the paper by Mr Scalfari, who is not a Roman Catholic, Francis wrote: “You ask me if the God of the Christians forgives those who don’t believe and who don’t seek the faith. I start by saying – and this is the fundamental thing – that God’s mercy has no limits if you go to him with a sincere and contrite heart. The issue for those who do not believe in God is to obey their conscience. “Sin, even for those who have no faith, exists when people disobey their conscience.” Mr Scalfari said the Pope’s comments were “further evidence of his ability and desire to overcome barriers in dialogue with all”.
