Hana and The Pearls in The Seattle Times

Jeff Hodson of the Seattle Times provides extensive coverage of the death of Hana Alemu “Williams” as well as the Pearls’ teachings in Did Hana’s parents ‘train’ her to death?  I am grateful to see  this blog mentioned and linked to  in this article.  Letters to the editor regarding that article are here.

About Hermana Linda
Hermana means sister in Spanish and Linda is my name. I was born in late 1960 to a mother who had traveled around the world and had been impressed at the baby wearing she saw in Africa and Japan. While in Japan she purchased the baby carrier in which she is wearing me in my avatar. By the grace of God, I trusted Jesus as my personal savior in 1983. He gave me a husband in 1987 and 2 sons in the early 1990's. All glory to God.

    Hi. I would like to ask you if there is a legal way to make them pay for their teachings. Obviously there is a first amendment privilege situation but what about a class action suit ? There has to be a way. Any ideas?

    • As I mentioned in this post, there does seem to be a law firm looking into that idea. However, my goal is really just to warn people away from their teachings and to provide arguments against those teachings. Their beliefs are sincerely held religious beliefs and when we abridge the right to express sincerely held religious beliefs we start down a slippery slope.
