Another Preacher Falls

Tony Alamo, a televangelist who has been preaching God's word for 40 years, is accused of child molestation. As part of the investigation, authorities have raided his compound (you can never be too careful with the kind of Christians who live in compounds) in Arkansas and are questioning several children found on the property.

Reached by phone in California, Alamo denied the charges and claimed that he was being "persecuted" just like Jesus. Alamo added that he is not a pornographer and that "I love children."

Um.... Just a suggestion, Tony, but if you're accused of molesting kids, it's probably NOT a good idea to tell the cops that you "love children."
