This story just broke on CNN! The following is from the Associated Press:

The Associated Press

FOUKE, Ark. (AP) — Federal authorities conducting a child-porn investigation raided the headquarters Saturday of a ministry run by a convicted tax evader once labeled by prosecutors as a polygamist who preys on girls and women.

Social workers interviewed children who live at the Tony Alamo Christian Ministries complex, which critics call a cult, to find out whether they were abused. The two-year investigation involves a law that prohibits the transportation of children across state lines for criminal activity, said Tom Browne, who runs the FBI office in Little Rock.

"Children living at the facility may have been sexually and physically abused," Browne said.

The raid, conducted by state and federal authorities, started an hour before sunset at the complex in tiny Fouke, in southwestern Arkansas. Armed guards regularly patrol the headquarters, but there was no resistance as agents moved in, state police said.

Oh yeah ... TONY ALAMO

I though this piece of scum had disappeared or died, preferably a long painful death. His claims to being a Christian arre based on how much money he thinks he can yank out of your wallet.

Used to rip the hair right out of the heads of women in his church, beat their children and break up their marriages. Tony Alamo, who was known in the Hollywood scene of the 70's for not only headtripping everyone he could, but molesting every little girl he came close to. He would openly use drugs himself and on others to help with their brainwashing. He had a little "ranch" just like Charles Manson located just north of Los Angeles in the Newhall/Saugus/Santa Clarita area where he inducted people into his Cult over a period of days in which people were not allowed to leave and were help under armed guard. He was also known along the Sunset Strip for kidnappings of underage girls.

Yeah, Tony Alamo ... where is that prize winner, I want to have a little talk with him that will make Gitmo look like amateur hour.

The article calls it an Arkansas compound not a Christian Church. Your title is misleading and inflamatory. Please change you title to reflect the truth. This is a cult and the 'minister' in charge is a well known manipulator.

When I was typing the title, it was what was on CNN. I could not find anything on, so I went to the AP. This is the current story on

(CNN) -- Six children were put into temporary custody after authorities raided an evangelist's Arkansas compound, a state police spokesman said Sunday.

The children were being interviewed as part of an investigation into whether they were physically or sexually abused at the Tony Alamo Christian Ministries near Texarkana, Arkansas, according to Bill Sadler.

About 100 agents raided the 15-acre site Saturday and met with no resistance, he said.

It was not meant to be inflamatory, so I apologize. If anyone knows if or how I can modify it, please let me know as I would like it to be accurate. I by no means wish to infer that this cult like group are in anyway representative of Christians in general! Again, my apologies.

Tony the phony has been an Arkansas staple for decades now.

There is a reason why people choose this state to go nuts, but that's another story.

From the time I was a child I knew about him. He lived a few towns over and didn't pay his workers to run his little city, Alma. (One of my daughters lives there now.)

As a teenager I could rely on one thing, when I went into the grocery store and came back out, a sermon of his would be stuffed under my windshield wiper.

I remember when his wife's corpse went missing because Jesus was going to raise her from the dead.

The guy is psycho.

He did design some pretty awesome clothes though.

Religion, If it doesn't make you crazy, your not paying attention.

I see you meant no harm. CNN as well as the other MSM are notorious for this type of behavior. No offense taken.

I hope they finally remove this nut from the population.
