Description

The Daily Courier finds that a local church, with ties to other churches throughout the U.S. and overseas, is engaged in a number of unorthodox practices which includes the physical and mental abuse of its members. For years, the Daily Courier had received occasional calls from anonymous sources alleging abuses, but no one was willing to step forward and tell their story until a senior minister came forward. The Daily Courier followed trails which led to across the U.S., ultimately uncovering a sinister organization which made indentured servants of its members in order for church leaders to pay for their extravagant lifestyles. (February 28, March 1 - 3, 1995)
