Judge Grants Name Change for Sion

Judge Grants Name Change for Sion

There are 10 comments on the www.texarkanagazette.com story from Apr 16, 2010, titled Judge Grants Name Change for Sion. In it, www.texarkanagazette.com reports that:

Tony Alamo’s 18-year-old son told a Miller County judge Thursday that his father’s name was keeping him from finding a job. When asked by Circuit Judge Kirk Johnson to more specifically describe the inconveniences posed by the surname Alamo, Lazar said he believes he has been turned town for positions in nursing homes because of his last name.

“They don’t really say it but I can see it in their facial expressions,” Lazar said.

Lazar told Johnson he intends to move “back to New York” once his name is legally changed. Alamo ministries operates churches in Fouke, Fort Smith, Ark., Saugus, Calif., and New York.

Johnson told Lazar he would sign the order after he submitted proof of a background check revealing no felony convictions or pending criminal cases.

“Take this to the sheriff’s office and if there’s no problem we’ll get this resolved,” Johnson said.

Lazar returned about an hour later, and Johnson signed the order.

Lazar’s father, whose given name is Bernie LaZar Hoffman, changed his name to Tony Alamo in the 1960s. Alamo was convicted in July of bringing young girls he had wed across state lines for sex. In November, he was sentenced to 175 years in federal prison.

“I’m not going to answer that,” Lazar said when asked if he planned to assume his father’s position as leader of Tony Alamo Christian Ministries.

“It’s not my job to answer questions about people’s suspicions,” Lazar said.

Lazar said the media have “misrepresented our ministry” and made “everything sound horrible.”

I suppose now we'll have to warn all the good citizens of New York City!

I hope the Feds are watching this situation. No doubt that this is another Alamo scheme to move the business interests to his son who is now of legal age.

i dont know Sion too well,but i do know that if he did resume his dads position,he would run it a lot differently,not like Tony did,because he lived it.(the beatings,and wittnessed the abuse that his mother indured and his friends),so i think he would know better,
but i could be wrong.

The fact that he refused to confirm or deny whether he was going to resume the Alamo organization's activities, is a red flag right there. Is he going to distance himself from the family legacy? Is he going to uphold it? And if so, is he a chip off the old block? Time will tell.

These statements here say it all. The apple never falls far from the tree.

The best thing you could do here, is to go after everyone in a leadership or authority role in that church, and bring down the entire shooting match.

Ahem! What about the other two children begat by the World Rapist? I think their names are Tabor and Mishael. Are they gonna have any say in future Cult operations? Let's not forget that these poor children were born from an adulterous environment!

Pray for them.
