I know you’re out there . . .

. . . and I know you read this stuff because you are now afraid of being seen.  Instead of putting your odious little leaflet in the letterbox, you waited until I was away and stuffed it under the church door.

Well, it got a little soggy, but not to worry, it’s the same publication that you left last year.  Do you remember that?  Do you remember delivering your glossy  newsletter from “Tony Alamo Christian Ministries”, inside which you folded a black and white leaflet declaring that Pope John Paul II is a Nazi war criminal (“is” not “was” because the leaflet dated  from 1990).  The colour newsletter has testimonials from correspondents in various African nations – it declares “All the letters are recent, from 2003 to 2005”.

Do you remember last year that I thought it odd that you would  go to the lengths of reprinting material from 1990, but not include up to the minute news of Pastor Alamo.  Do you remember that?  Do you remember the CNN report from September 2008?  Here it is to jog your memory?

Federal and state police raided an evangelist’s compound in Arkansas late Saturday to investigate whether any children have been physically or sexually abused, officials said.  The raid is part of a two-year investigation into a compound near Texarkana, Arkansas, owned by Tony Alamo Christian Ministries, said Bill Sadler of the Arkansas State Police. About 100 agents were on the 10- to 15-acre site late Saturday and met with no resistance, he said.

But 2008 is old news when it comes to Tony Alamo, isn’t it?  He was found guilty of child abuse last July and sentenced to 175 years in prison last September.  He took girls as young as nine years old across the state line to have sex with them.  In case you missed the piece on Fox News, here is what the judge said about Tony Alamo:

“Mr. Alamo, one day you will face a higher a greater judge than me, may he have mercy on your soul,”

The judge is a considerably better Christian than I am, I would wish that a man guilty of abusing little girls would burn a long time in Hell.

I would have thought that someone so keen on delivering Alamo’s literature would have kept right up to date with things, like the New York Times report last Wednesday on the order for Alamo to make restitution to his victims.

Of course, Alamo claims the prosecution and the conviction are due to those who plot against him, doesn’t he?  Don’t his problems arise from the government and the Vatican, if one believes his literature?

But look at what he himself says, he says that ‘marriage’ with minors is permissible.  He says that young girls can be married before they reach the legal age of consent.  When Alamo himself advocates breaking the law of any society that calls itself civilized, his protestations of innocence ring completely hollow.

You creep around with your hate literature, pushing it under doors and into letterboxes when no-one can see you.  If you are so confident, why not come out into the light?

I would be quite happy to pass on to An Garda Siochana details of a person who supports an advocate of child abuse.

  1. God. It’s depressing.

  2. Dear oh dear.

  3. Hate literature would be a fairly common experience for many clergy, I’ve been sent nasty stuff for suggesting in the diocesan magazine that God might have greater priorities than people’s sexuality.

    This stuff marks a first in coming from someone who is a convicted criminal.

  4. The following was received from ‘Got Truth’ at Alamo Ministries.

    Pastor Tony Alamo was FRAMED by the very filth he exposed using this now controlled Vatican government, judicial system and the news media who convicted him before they even chose a jury. He was convicted with NO evidence against him. Just lying testimony from 5 false witnesses who sold their souls for $$$.
    Pastor Alamo is a TRUE man of God who preaches the gospel and exposes the head of every abomonation on the face of this earth. The pope, Jesuits and the Vatican who are the biggest pedophiles, run the pedophile sex rings and sodomites and pushing and running every evil thing happening now on earth.
    If you want the TRUTH go to the web site and read how the ministry parents children have been stolen from them by this Vatican Nazi government, DHS and other agency they are using. How they framed Pastor Alamo and how he is still VICTORIOUS IN JESUS CHRIST AND WRITING EVEN MORE GOSPEL LITERATURE. NOTHING CAN KEEP HIM DOWN. PRAISE THE LORD FOR RAISING HIM UP IN THESE LAST DAYS TO PREACH THE TRUTH EVEN UNDER THIS HORRIBLE PERSECUTION!!
    IF YOU WANT TRUTH GO TO THE WEB SITE AT http://www.alamoministries.com.

    Joh 15:18 If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.
    Luk 21:17 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake.
    Mat 24:9 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake.
    Mat 5:12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.
    Mat 5:11 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.

    Pretty much reinforces every point made in the post, and as anonymous as the creep who goes around pushing leaflets under doors.

  5. Ian. Have you looked at his website? I had a peep out of curiosity. So mad; please don’t give him any more thought or airtime, it just feeds into their madness. Sorry you had to come back from your BCR disco moment to that.

  6. Agreed, but for years people who talked the language of Tony Alamo held in thrall many of the Protestant community in the North. They loved the air of secrecy and conspiracy, pretending they were persecuted. Their horrible little leaflets and booklets were commonplace – and they would shout down anyone who disagreed. I have reached the conclusion that the more such groups are exposed to the glare of publicity, the more people will realize how odious they are.

  7. Best binned and forgotten about!

    People like that are to be pitied.

  8. Filth….

  9. It goes with a long list of scandals from those of that ilk:


  10. I remember “The Plain Truth” from my youth. Then I thought it was really heavy stuff. The dangers of German re-armament; the descent of the British Monarchy from the wandering Tribe of Dan. Life threatening and illusion shattering. But, in retrospect, it was really light entertainment compared with some of the stuff of today’s world.

    Having “progressed” to unbelief I do not feel the Christian obligation to forgive my enemies. I know that things like revenge can do you more damage than they do your enemies. That biological/emotional fact I understand. But in extreme cases like child abuse I really don’t think I would have either the strength or the inclination to forgive.

  11. Polo,

    When one considers a response I just received from someone calling themselves Allexus, a certain drift is forgiveable.


    Your comment is defamatory, for which reason it is not going to appear here, and is simply a repetition of the drivel from ‘Got Truth’. Oh, and don’t think you are anonymous – Woopra gives me your browser, your IP address, your screen resolution and your location.
