Bernard LaZar Hoffman, known to his followers as “Tony Alamo”, is finally back off to prison again, where he belongs. Hopefully he will be sentenced to the maximum 175 years possible if society is lucky. Anyway, barring appeal it looks Tony Alamo will die in prison, where child molesters of all backgrounds belong.
In many eyes this conviction might have been less of a blow to religious fraudsters than to paedophiles and child molesters, but still a body shot nonetheless. Yet in the case of Tony Alamo’s conviction in Texarkana, it is devastating to both the sex offenders and the religious fraudsters who exist on the fringe of sanity.
Because according to the testimony of the victims Tony Alamo committed his particular evil in the name of God. God said the little girls had to marry Tony Alamo and have sex with him. And Tony Alamo was the mouth of God. That’s obviously been alright with his followers who have gone along with this for quite some time. Sure… It is an acceptable answer for the brainwashed but for us normal folk it’s disgusting, wrong and criminal. And that’s why the Tony Alamos of the world belong in jails and nut houses, not churches.
I know this verdict has to be very disappointing to crackpots like Thomas Richards out there who’d backed Hoffman’s cultish spew until Tony Alamo’s conviction was all but assured. Some of the nuts with the harder shells probably are still backing Tony Alamo. Surely at this point they must well understand that society frowns on cult leaders referring to themselves as “prophets” whose direct line to God allow them carte blanche to take any woman in their cult following. I have to ask the question: Is it a requirement to be psychologically sick to join such a “ministry” or do you just have to be callous toward common sense?
But again, some of these folks already have been counting their losses and licking their wounds in advance. Thomas Richards has even threatened me in blog comments to my last post concerning when I pointed out that Richards had changed his position on his old pal, preacher Tony who reckoned himself a prophet. Feeling obviously threatened by my post as usual Thomas Richards called me a “weasel” and promised to come up with some story “exposing” me as being connected with the Vatican. (Have at it, Tommy! You conspiracy guys eat up everything, crap it out, and expect others to suck down your concoctions, don’t you? Stop drinking the Kool Aid!) Thomas Richards then lashed out like a wounded animal and alluded that I liked little boys, for which he deserves one hell of a swat. After Tommy’s comments, some nut from Tony Alamo’s “ministry” said that God was going to pop my head off like a cork from a champagne bottle. (Wow! How’d this whacko know what God is going to do to my head? I guess God speaks not only to prophets but to nuts as well! These guys are just too much.)
Anyway, once Thomas Richards has proved to the world that the Catholic Church is pulling strings to use me in their grand scheme to rule the world then the rest of his kind will be busy explaining away Tony’s incarceration, putting the blame on the Catholics, mainly Jesuits, who wanted him gone because he was the voice in the wilderness exposing them for their crimes against man and God. I expect the Jews to get mentioned a few times as well. It’s all part of one big conspiracy against the true Christians – yeah, we know the story. Maybe they can get Jack Chick to print up a comic about their persecution?
Anyway, the verdict is cause for sane people who think the Tony Alamos of the world should pay for their crimes against children. While I am celebrating tonight over a beer or two with friends I am going to make sure to raise a toast to Thomas Richards and the rest of Tony Alamo’s sheep, bugle boys and guard dogs.
Oh, damn! I almost forgot… Didn’t that fraud “Dr.” Alberto Rivera get in bed with Tony Alamo some time back as well? Sure he did! You can even hear Alberto Rivera’s pontificating on Thomas Richards’s own YouTube channel. Damn sure proves the adage about water seeking its own level, now doesn’t it?
Tommy, when are you going to realize that you keep betting on all the wrong horses?
I can just hear the joyful noise from the crowd outside the court house in Texarkana…
“Bye, bye, Bernie!”
