Those bunch of bastards have no right to take away the properties of the church members. It's not Tonys. It belongs to the members who live there. He can't live there because he's serving a 175 year sentence. Not to mention, those "girls and boys" don't deserve a penny for their outrageous lies.

FC, From your use of the terms "bastards" and "girls and boys" I suspect you're either a. clandestine current member and Alamo supporter or someone trying to sound like one for some reason. In any case I agree the properties aren't Alamo's but, rather, belong to the Congregation passed and present not just the ones living there now. Not sure who" boys and girls" refers to but I think the successful litigants against Alamo certainly deserve their awards and don't think what they had to say in court were lies at all. The "outrageous" quality was

from the evil cruel actions of Alamo and his agents against the litigants. The money to pay their awards should come from Alamo himself and from those who harmed them by Alamo's instructions.

Although Bernie claimed the money he spent on his own frivolous lifestyle was his from "investments", in reality it was money stolen from the hard work of the brothers and sisters. I only wish that the money came out of Bernie's pockets. Because of his crimes the congregation is forced to suffer even more.

FC, If you are a current member, Guess what? The joke is on you. Do you know why the properties will be seized? The properties will be seized because of tony's actions. Does that clear the air for you?

I've heard from Alamite insiders who left the compound that Alamo has off shore accounts where he stashed millions of dollars. Harder to deal with those than simply pulling a Simon Legree and throwing families into the streets to wander homelessly so rhe courts and their agents can sell their homes to satisfy Alamo's debts.

Tony is serving 175 years in prison because he raped  many underage children, starting as young as 8 years old. Why do you think these girls are lying? Is it  because Tony Alamo says the girls are lying ? Just because Tony says they are lying  does not make  what the girls are saying untrue. When people get caught in wrong doing or crimes, they lie to defend themselves! The jails and prisons are full of criminals, who claim they are innocent. Tony Alamo has been proven over and over to be a liar . Why would you defend a child rapist? Are you so blinded by your devotion to Tony that you can not examine the facts for yourself? Many of the foundation children were brutally beaten  by Tony Alamo himself, or by Tony Alamo 's instructions. It is sad the brothers and sisters are losing everything we all worked so hard for. Too bad Tony didn't listen to Susie regarding spanking  the children. Susie told me personally, " The day Tony or I lay a hand on you people's children, is the day the government comes in and takes the  Church  down".  Tony not only beat  or instructed to beat many of the foundation children repeatedly. He went down from being a child abuser to a pedophile, using the Bible as a tool to force his great grandfather aged self on the most innocent 8, 9 10 11, 12, 13 , 14, 15, 16 17. Year olds. Lying to them and telling them they would go to hell if they didn't marry him, because "God" told him these little girls were to be his wife.  All the hardships that have come upon the foundation and the people have been caused by Tony Alamo's actions and behaviors.  Tony Alamo should have kept his dirty hands off the children. This is all his fault, he is a brute beast made to be taken and destroyed. He will never get out of prison, but yet you all still let him control your life. He is still kicking people out unjustly, He still takes people off driving, he still is banning people to their houses, he still is calling you all names and sending you discouraging messages from his prison cell, telling you all this  is your faults because you are not right with the Lord, or your not working hard enough, or your not reading the Bible enough ,or your not praying enough. His methods of operation and running the foundation have been the same for over 40 years. Screaming  and yelling, name calling , you have to  choke down his lies and attacks against you, your family and your children, if you try to stand up and tell what happened, then you are accused of defending the devil. Most of you know in your hearts the stuff he says is wrong, but your blind devotion to him and the fear of leaving will not allow you to act, will not allow you to search out the matter and find out for yourself what has really happened to these "boys and girls".

Tony has no conscience and no fear of God. The only thing Tony Alamo fears is losing control over the very few innocent followers he has left and being exposed for what he truly is...this is why he wants to control what his followers read and watch and do...he must control all information that enters their minds. He makes himself their only news source, their only history book, their only gossip tabloid, their only Google search, their apostle of the time and even one of the two witnesses! Loyal followers, follow God not man! The Arch of safety is larger and broader and more extensive than Tony makes it out to be. The Blood reaches even the lowest valleys!

The members who may possibly be put out of their houses are gettin what they deserve for allowing the abuse in the first place. Also maybe then if they are all homeless, the families can reunite with their actual family members.
I dont feel sorry for any of them. They knew this was coming especially when Alamo got sent to prison.

You don't represent any inner voice of mine. You speak cruelty.

... nor mine. I'm saddened by the prospect of families losing homes. The rank and file may be deluded, but are hardworking and well intentioned. I doubt that they are fully informed about Tony. It's very sad that they have to suffer for the crimes of Tony and his inner circle.

I would welcome a conversation with the current members and would help them get on their feet if they desire to leave. The problem is they have a hard time talking to us. The reason is they stood by and supported ta when he committed those crimes. It is difficult for them to admit to that. Being in a cult is one thing but, being in cult with a cult leader that did what ta did is a whole nuther ballgame.
