      Tony Alamo is a born again Jew. The Bible says in the last days of this earth, the Jews would be preaching the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ to you gentiles.
      Tony Alamo tells it like it is. The government is corrupt the main stream media is the mouth of satan.
      Everybody knows the government is corrupt but you scared monkeys are too afraid to say it publicly, openly, like Tony Alamo has on his audio programs.
      There are over 1,000 audio programs on his web site for you to listen to. http://www.alamoministries.com

      One day every one will stand before the Living God and make account of everything they have said or done on this earth. You will be judged by God from the King James version of the Bible, you better start reading it now before it’s too late.
      Or you will be that scared monkey shaking before the living God that created the Heavens and the Earth and you.

      Pity this asshole’s crimes will not get him the electric chair, he screws millions for millions, then purchases little girls (of course not American little girls (god would really not like that)) for his perverse pleasures, and some of you are so nuts that you still protect him.
      Wake up people, this is an evil child Rapist, he deserves whatever he gets.
