Church compound raided by feds for child abuse and child porn

Hell, even the name of the church sounds suspicious, Tony Alamo Christian Church.
Hey Tony, let's start a church!

No one was arrested, but U.S. Attorney Bob Balfe said before the raid that he expected an arrest warrant for Alamo to be issued later. The federal investigation centered on the production of child pornography, while state police were looking into allegations of other child abuse, he said.
Tony wasn't at the compound that day but stressed to the press that he wasn't into pornography.
In a phone call to The Associated Press from a friend's house in the Los Angeles area, Alamo — who was also once accused of child abuse — denied involvement in pornography.

"We don't go into pornography; nobody in the church is into that," said Alamo, 73.
Well I should certainly hope not, Tony. He claims that Catholics are behind this raid.
"The Catholics don't like me because I have cut their congregation in half. They hate true Christianity."
To be fair, I don't know what his church is all about, and today just about any cult can be labeled "christian" and given tax exempt status. Personally, I feel that unless they have cemeteries for their followers, I don't give them much credence.
