Tony Alamo still has some supporters busy spreading his hate-filled anti-Catholic message. But they're doing a poor job of defending it.
From time to time in recent months I've found Alamo newsletters left on the car windshields near where I work. Today, for the first time, I actually saw a fellow doing it. As I approached my car he quickly scooted away and started stuffing tracts on cars in the next row over.
Then a security truck pulled up near they guy to ask what he was doing. As soon as the truck stopped, the Alamo tract guy started running like a scared rabbit. He stuffed a few more tracts on cars in another part of the parking lot, then disappeared.
Today's tract newsletter is titled TREASON, and the first page shows a color photo of Pope Benedict and President Obama shaking hands. The entire tract is nothing but ugly, hateful anti-Catholic, anti-Obama conspiracy theories. (Did you know, for instance, that Jesuit University in Scranton is a major recruiting station for the Black Pope's Central Intelligence Agency, that Obama's team is riddled with demonic Jesuit agents, and that Joe Biden is a Jesuit puppet?)
Alamo's already-tenuous grip on reality seems to be slipping. Small wonder the tract-stuffer was uninterested in defending his actions.
