Re: “Meet me at the Maté Factor

Jessica, I do understand what you are saying, and appreciate your reply. Indeed, you are right that, "paying them paltry amounts of money for their work," is an iunderstatement. And, "that they "do not like the way they treat their women."

"On Oct. 21, 2014, CBC News reported that, “Twelve Tribes religious group targeted by child abuse allegations - the Manitoba government says the welfare of the children at Twelve Tribes will be looked into by Child and Family Services Department staff.” On Sept. 5, 2013, German police raided two communities belonging to the Twelve Tribes and removed 40 children to protect them from continued abuse."

"Men and women work long hours 16-18 hours with no wages and little if any medical care. Members give everything and receive nothing in return except dances, hugs, baked squash, millet, beets, maggot infested potatoes, teachings and house arrest. The twelve tribes routinely use people and then cast them aside as weak."

You are a brilliant writer/author/editor, Jessica, and you are correct, "This is a story about a new business in Savannah," not an expose. Cheers

Re: “Meet me at the Maté Factor

Dear Jessica Leigh Lebos (Reporter) - I understand that you write about, "anything involving free food for more than 20 years," but it appears you did not do your homework concerning who and what the "Twelve Tribes" cult does besides offer you free food and drink? I am a journalist for the 'Cult Examiner' and 'Wire Service' and I'm stunned that you did not mention the controversies surrounding this cult community. On September 5, 2013, German police raided two communities belonging to the Twelve Tribes and removed 40 children to protect them from continued abuse. Within the community, parents routinely deny their children immunizations and medical care. They don't want doctors to discover the many scars on their children's buttocks from severe beatings. - David Love: davidloveletter@gmail.com
