HISTORY
Tony Alamo (born 1934 as Bernie Lazar Hoffman), is a controversial American preacher, singer, entrepreneur and evangelist. He ran a fundamentalist organization particularly critical of Roman Catholicism and believes the Pope to be the Antichrist. He also created and manufactured a line of Tony Alamo-brand sequined denim jackets, a business that eventually landed him in jail after being convicted of tax evasion.

(although I do not believe them, here are Tony Alamo's own words defending himself before his February trial)
BY TONY ALAMO:
"The newspapers are saying that I am promoting polygamy. I do not promote polygamy, but I do preach the Bible. I do not promote teenage marriages or young marriages, but I do preach the Bible. God prefers women who have reached puberty to marry rather than commit fornication and first degree murder by aborting their children. Both of these sins send the person to hell and to the lake of fire.

The news media lies by saying that I promote polygamy. I do not promote polygamy, but I preach the Word of God, which the newspaper seems to disagree with and the government disagrees with. I preach the Bible, which never condemns it.

Also the Bible tells us how to raise a child and sometimes we must discipline them as God disciplines us. Now the government and the news media do not want us to preach that part of the Bible. Now the anti-Christ government is telling us what we can preach and teach from the Bible and what we cannot preach and teach from the Bible. This is why our forefathers came from Europe, from under the rule of Catholicism, to serve the Lord as the Bible prescribes.

They’re even saying in the paper that they found some pictures. You can go into every house and find pictures, but they are not pornographic. The newspaper is painting a picture that is totally false.

What they are doing is changing the charges on us now. They could not prove that there was any pornography or child pornography and they cannot prove the other charges either. So now what they are doing is bringing in the over twenty year old child abuse charge, which was dropped. The government cannot prove the charges."

Tony took a flashy name that was catchy to replace his real name Bernie Lazar Hoffmam. Hoffman may still be his legal "in court" name; I hope the spelling is accurate. The "World Pastor" was aware his self-chosen new name would be confused with the name of a former singer also named Tony Alamo and would evoke the memory of the phrase: remember the Alamo, but the jailed pastor pronounces his name:[uh LAHM O] or [ah LAHM o]. To make matters more confusing, he spent a lot of time in in the town called Alama.
