As Radar reported, an FBI investigation was launched in October 2009 over claims that dozens of church members “live and work in slave-like conditions” facing “severe limitations of civil liberties, including physical abuse,” according to one agent’s report. The Church has always strenuously denied all claims of abuse. In 2013, they insisted they had no evidence that this FBI investigation had occurred.

Others were made to “crawl around the conference room table,” a witness claimed, “for a few days in a row until their knees were bloody. Some people had to stand in the middle of the room with signs around their necks that said things like… ‘I’m a w***e.”
