The “Sound of Freedom” is a movie about the true story of Tim Ballard, a former Homeland Security Investigations officer who founded and now heads Operation Underground Railroad an organization that conducts sting operations within the United States and abroad to rescue victims of child sex trafficking and aid in the arrest of the traffickers.
The movie was released on July Fourth earlier this month. Although it was released to 2600 theaters nationwide the mainstream news media is trying to discredit or ignore the film and its message, Rolling Stone and other outlets called it a “conspiracy theory.” The New York Times and the Los Angelos Times who publish film reviews have reported nothing on the film.
This may be because America is the number one producer of porn that fuels the sex trafficking industry and the greatest market for sex trafficking. It has also been labeled as a “Christian” movie, but I cannot even imagine non-Christians who are not appalled at the child sex trafficking industry.
Some may think child sex trafficking began and ended with Jeffery Epstein, but the human trafficking industry is soon to become the greatest money maker for organized crime. It is pulling in $150 billion annually.
The movie tells the story of a Cambodian boy who was being trafficked through the southern border for sex and was rescued by Ballard. He then learns the little boy’s sister is being trafficked in Central America and he leaves to rescue her.
Have we become so callous in America that the sexual exploitation of people, of children, does not stir our outrage? I suppose the devaluation of children by means of abortion has created an atmosphere where we no longer care for those children who are alive.
We read in the Scriptures, “Do not participate in the unfruitful deeds of darkness, but instead even expose them; for it is disgraceful even to speak of the things which are done by them in secret,” Ephesians 5:11-12.
This is what the “Sound of Freedom” is doing; it is exposing the societal evil of human trafficking for what it is, “the unfruitful deeds of darkness.”
It has to be the most hellish experience anyone could imagine to be trapped in sexual slavery, especially to children. Let this be a wake up call to pray about what each of us can do to end this evil practice.
