But for the sex crimes

Court cites unseemly use of eternal damnation threats

TEXARKANA, Ark. — Evangelist Tony Alamo used his stature as a self-proclaimed prophet to force underage girls into sham marriages with him, controlling his followers with their fears of eternal suffering.
It's Evangelism-business-as-usual. (Some may feel free to quibble over the exclusion of sex crimes, but I'm not quite that "militant.")
