Shows how a church forms a charity, Streetchild of God, and then uses the words right out of the Bible to justify covering up for the members who abuse children for sex. They use what Paul said in Corinthians Chapter 6, Verse 1 to avoid the rules of civilized people and the rule of law. Any excuse to avoid being punished for what they have done to children. This movie shows exactly what happens to the children [a seven-year-old child rolls over in bed to present her genitals for use by the male) and exactly how the church excuses it. "God Will Forgive Anything!")
