    Slavery has never been against the Christian creed. Guess some wanted to go old school and bring back the good old days.

    A visa process being misused?
    Didn't expect that to happen.

    Probably approaching the same level of silence you would have if it was a mosque doing this. Regardless of religion it is wrong and the leaders of the church should be arrested and tried.

    It has happened with Muslims in the past. Not on a large scale like this, usually just a maid or other servant. The people who did it either fled the country or were prosecuted, as they deserved. I hope these people get their comeuppance.

    Sounds a lot like common Scientology practices to me

    Now you just need to mention Trump, gun owners, white people, and cops to hit your daily quota of talking points.

    What this church is doing is insane. Is anyone disagreeing with that?

    Why are you arguing with yourself? Nobody is defending what this church did yet you use it as a reason to pick an argument with others.

    Wow guys a religious organization (supposedly for the benefit of society) is abusing immigrant minors and most of the posts here are "imagine if they were <X>, what would the <Y> wingers say!"

    SHAME.

    For the good of all man kind drop the partisan B.S!
