I think it is a shame that the man who runs the company, Rogwr Catarino, ran the place in the ground saying they were a Christian based company and have done nothing but lie to and cheat the community. That is not very Christian to me.. As of today the company is debt close to 13 million. Some employees are yet to be paid for upto 6 weeks of work. I personally have done several repair jobs for them on "emergency basis" spent my money, used my equiptment, and my labor into helping them and they are yet to pay me since July. They are a disgrace. I would not want to face judgement day knowing I hid behind Gods name to lie and steal.

That's how corporate Christianity works. Just look at Romney.

They beat Ernie Sullins and all their employees out of money. I think even the town is having problems with them paying bills. What a fraud they are.

Heard they were trying to move operations to Washington Co. I hope no one deals with them and they get squashed in court

Christians are taught to forgive each other instead of being accusatory. Being in debt or owing debt is not Biblical but neither is casting stones. Have any of us sinners ever not paid a debt??? Think about it. Shame on you and your perfections. Amen and Amen.

Who said I was publicly claiming my faith? They hide behind God's name and lie and cheat people. I hope the place burns down if they aren't going to pay me. I know some money has to be coming in soon as they are looking to get rid of inventory maybe they can try to repay some of those who helped them get on their feet.

You need to watch who you're doing business with.....or you will not even be a business owner.....much less an owed business owner. Look at one of the main men in this endeavor and you should have known better.

When told by one of his officers that Jefferson Davis, President of the Confederate States of America, should be executed, President Lincoln replied: "He who is without fault, cast the first stone.".

I'm all for turning the other cheek and all that, but First Fruits not paying their bills to people who jumped in to help them is wrong! Tough times are tough times, but if I can't afford to get my car fixed and the mechanic gets it running so I can go to work, I'm gonna pay him first because he helped me out of a bad spot. Too many people wanted them to make it so bad they kept helping even when they shoulda knowed better because they didnt want them to lose their jobs. But the owner decided not to pay, so all of us are hurting. I guess when they go back to where they came from they won't have to look at all the people who they hurt. Made Christmas bad for alot of us. Robyn says to forgive, but God didn't forgive the snake that gave Adam and Eve their "First Fruit", did he.

Thank you. I'm glad to see you understand. Roger Caratino owes more people than I can count on one hand. No one should ever beg for help then turn their back on you.

I guess that's why me a lot of other people don't attend Church. I've seen too many "Sunday Only" Christians.

A lot of good people worked at First Fruits / Trinity Bottling. Only one person is to blame for all of the wrong doing that has went on and continues today. The person who is first to bring up religion in a conversation, first to place blame else where, etc... but all the while is as he calls himself "the quaterback" and calls all the plays.

God is forgiving but, blasphemy is damning. Remember that when you screw some on over and then run around claiming to be the best Christian in the world. Nd Wondering, I'm glad you didn't get tied up with them. Im happy that things turned out for the better with you. Hope your future is bright.

Well maybe they can sell their soul to the devil and get out of debt. Or to King Obama maybe.
