New Mexico Removes 3 Minors From Cult's Strong City Compound

The AP reported yesterday that New Mexico authorities have removed two girls and a boy-- all under age 18-- from the "Strong City" compound of The Lord Our Righteousness Church near Clayton, NM. The children are currently in state custody. The move took place after allegations of inappropriate contact between the three minors and the church's leader Wayne Bent (also known as Michael Travesser). In a statement on the group's website, Travesser says there has never been sex with minors.
