A sex-slavery cult was broken up by officials in Mexico. According to a Jan. 30 Fox News report, cult members were forced to have sex with the leader, who claimed to be a reincarnation of Jesus Christ.
The cult “Defensores de Cristo,” which means “Defenders of Christ,” operated out of Nuevo Laredo, which is just across the border from Laredo, Texas.
Members solicited women who were forced to perform sexual services, including prostitution. The National Immigration Institute filed a complaint against the cult over a year ago.
Prosecutors raided a house operated by the cult and found members, including many women and children, living in filthy conditions. Approximately 20 people have been arrested. Defensores de Cristo, led by Ignacio Gonzalez de Arriba, was a thriving group, heavily protected by the drug cartel.
This is the second bizarre news story to come out of Mexico this week. News broke earlier this week of band members found in a well. The band members had been kidnapped by gunman while performing a private party. They were then murdered and their bodies were thrown down a well.
