Tony Alamo Ministries pass out flyers in S’Port

The Tony Alamo Ministries raised some eyebrows today, looking to recruit new members to its flock.

Alamo was convicted in July 2009 of taking young girls across state lines for sex.

But, while he awaits sentencing, some of his followers have been passing out flyers.

Some residents of the University Oaks Apartments, just off Shreveport-Blanchard Road in the MLK neighborhood called us about those flyers.

“More kids live within the projects, so they’re easy targets,” says resident Meggy Baker. “And the parents might not have any knowledge of what bus they might be getting on. They just might be getting on the wrong bus just heading to who knows where.”

State child-welfare officials say a baby born to followers of the convicted evangelist, is at substantial risk of injury.

But a lawyer for the group calls the claim retaliation, after the group filed a lawsuit claiming the state is infringing on the religious freedoms of ministry members.

    On Sunday Sept 28th, Tony Alamo leaflets were put on at least one vehicle on the Schumpert Campus.

    I live in Tucson, AZ and have had two flyers inserted under my windshield wiper while shopping at the Home Depot at 4302 N Oracle Rd (Sept 25th) and again at the Fry’s grocery store at 3725 W Ina Rd (Oct 16th). The literature promotes polygamy with underaged girls. After investigating this man on the Internet, I found your site. Someone should stop the persons distributing these flyers as he promotes breaking the law in the name of religion.
