We should all be tired of phony Christian ministers arrogantly dictating to the public and encouraging the self-destructive wars of Bush and McPain. Jesus is embarrassed for how He has been misrepresented on earth.
Your idol Obama just started another war today. By tomorrow you'll be blaming Bush, right?

Listen everyone, all of you do Wrong things and here you are talking SH*T about someone that's done a bad thing. Look at all the bad things you have done. One day all of you will stand before God and you will realize you are no better than Manuel Taboada that you've all sinned and all of you deserve the punishment that he's getting for all you have done. I know it's a perveted discusting thing and it should've never happened, but it did things happen. Just remember we all have done wrong, and we all deserve the punishments he's getting,and we all deserve to burn in hell.

No, you're wrong. Most of us haven't done anything on this scale, or even close to it, so you can can that shyt right now. He can give his heart to Gawd, but his ass belongs in a jail cell here on earth.

I was in a cult once (young & vulnerable)--if you want to know how it could happen, watch this instructional video "Mind Control Cults". They used nearly every trick in the video. Needless to say, I'm somewhat wiser now (I escaped and hid out for a few years).

It's funny how all of these people on these comment pages can judge and condemn the man. But Hawaii law says that you can go to jail for ten years just for kissing and hugging of a child that someone accuses you of inappropriate contact. Even though it's not truly sexual in nature. That's a fact, so from what I can tell, NOT one of the people who condemned this group as a cult or commune actually ever spent even ONE day with these people and saw first hand for themselves what was going on there. You all are just making your own conclusions in your own twisted minds and assuming things about this group. But the fact of the matter is, not one prosecutor, or cop, or judge spent even one 24 hour period living with these people. You can go to prison for ten years for sexual assault even if you did not have sex with the "victim". That's a fact. If you don't believe me then call Honolulu PD yourself and you will see the truth. These were all good people that lived together and worshipped God. You all just believe the PRESS like a bunch of suckers when the PRESS wants a controversy to sell.

The girl involved in this case was never moved into Manuel's room. That never happened. Shit, that's the truth. Whoever reported that is lying their ass off.

This is a seven-year-old story. How did it end up? Did anyone go to prison? Was the girl lying ?

You wouldn't be saying that if it was YOUR daughter. Unless you'd been brainwashed. When it comes to crimes against children, it should be GUILTY until proven innocent.
Let him be tried. A lot of kids accuse people of being an abuser because they know it garners them a lot of attention. Others just hate their parentsm teachers of ministers. I think this guy is guilty as hell, but we aren't going to start witch hunts again. On that note, I propose we hang all rappers and hip-hoppers without trial.
