    Seriously, there is nothing in this world other than the Bible education to combat slavery from within. Secular attitude only increases the victims because secular people are selfish and immoral.

    This is a laudable proct by CNN and will go a long way in helping to stamp out this inhumanity to man. However, another form of slavery in the developing world is perpetrated under the guise of outsourcing by mostly multinational companies. Young persons are engaged as 'contractors' i.e. on contract and and in some cases on the job for twenty to thirty years. He/she is more or less a second class worker with little or no rights. This stems from the unfavorable terms of such contract which the individual is unable resist due to the prevailing unemployment situation in the country. The pay is also a far cry from what obtains with those of so-called expatriates on contract. S/he there trudges grudgingly and unhappily in the workplace because there is no certainty that the job will not be terminated at the end of every six months which continues for long year. It is that bad.

    LEGAL SLAVERY. House maids from poor countries are held as slave labor in Middle Eastern countries. Their passports are confiscated worked abused raped not even fed properly. They cannot go out of their homes. Some have been tortured and even a 17 year old when she was employed in Saudi Arabia is facing beheading because the infant in her choked to death when feeding. This is a legal form of International Slavery. This is modern day SLAVERY. What is CNN do about this. Here is Rizanas case. http://www.lhrtimes.com/rizana-nafeek-maid-faces-death-by-beheading-in-saudi-arabia.htm

    Why does this lack of love and concern still roam the earth because of hatred in side your self? Its the guilt that one is in denial about Society amongst society is under an act of perpetration. When you are a God fearing creature you are awaRe of whats being done wrong especially when you have power to expose this trife. One kind of miracle from God shall be revealed through another God fearing man or woman. It is to take action and not suppress these facts because its not an act from God. Those who posess the info and ignore it will be judged. There is a method to life on earth and heaven or earth. When God is given the glory accept Him and expect my mighty God to be responsible and prevail when u surrender. Confidence and having pure faith is the guidance from God instealed in you. Give this demension of hell that being perpetrated to God will in His name to an end it will become. As this life is on earth and not in heaven.

    Religion in my case is the reason for slavery. Some religions are ok with slavery Hindus for example seem to have no problem with it. In my case that is going on here in Phoenix involves Asain Indians who have taken slavery to a new low here in Phoenix. They enslave U.S. citizens who are down on their luck veterans native americans and the like. They dont see a problem as long as they make their millions each year. By the way I busted the ring that held me and others. We are in U.S. Federal Courtt on Wed the 27th for a hearing will keep you posted on it
