Evangelist Convicted of Child Sex Charges

Tony Alama, the Christian mega-preacher from Arkansas, was convicted on Friday of Mann Act violations for taking girls as young as 9 across state lines and having sex with them.

The five women, now age 17 to 33, told jurors that Alamo “married” them in private ceremonies while they were minors, sometimes giving them wedding rings. Each detailed trips beyond Arkansas’ borders for Alamo’s sexual gratification.

Here’s my favorite part:

“I’m just another one of the prophets that went to jail for the Gospel,” Alamo called to reporters afterward as he was escorted to a waiting U.S. marshal’s vehicle.

Of course you are, Tony. Of course you are. Rot in prison, you bastard.
