Roy Masters (born Reuben Obermeister) is a strange cookie indeed. He has a weekly talk radio show (and a book) called Finding God in Physics, and does a daily radio show called "Advice Line", where he does the best he can to ruin the lives of people weak enough to listen to him.

His views are a weird hybrid of fundamentalist Christianity and the New Age movement. He used to be a full-time hypnotist, but apparently discovered that most people are already hypnotized, and need to be freed. He also thinks that after a few hand-waving references to quantum physics and gravity, he has proven the existence of his God. Add in abstinence-only sex education, traditional gender roles, vicious misogyny, past lives, and any right-wing conspiracy theory he has ever run into (and probably some that he made up), and you've got his views in a nutshell. He has his own version of mumbletypeg physics. He never met a right-wing conspiracy theory he didn't like. His Wikipedia page is heavily whitewashed[1] and seems to be defended by true believers.[2]

He hates Obama so much that when a caller calls the President a "communist", he runs with it. Unsurprisingly, he is also an enthusiastic birther.
