SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) - "He is definitely a man who arranges marriages of little girls, and orders beatings of little children." These are only a couple events Anthony Lane says he witnessed during his two month stay at the Tony Alamo Ministries in 1996 before being kicked out of the church and out of the lives of his three children.
"I felt like I had lost any reason to live I didn't have a reason to live in fact I was suicidal."Lane was kicked out of the church after he says he questioned Alamo's teachings, and after a while he found help and support through a group know as PACA or Partnered against Cult Activities.
"PACA has been giving me counseling about what steps I should take and giving me number of people I should call." Such as lawyers, who Lane says has been working with him to get custody of his kids from his wife who is still with the church, but he says it's not easy, when Alamo cuts off contact to his family.
