Moorish Science Temple of America
The Moorish Science Temple of America is an American religious organization founded in the early 20th-century claiming to be a sect of Islam but having equal influences in Buddhism, Christianity, Freemasonry, Gnosticism and Taoism.
The rival factions are disputing which group is the true representation of the temple established in the early 20th century as a sect of Islam that blends influences from other faiths.
Conway Sheild, legal advisor for the company, characterizes the dispute as “bizarre.”
“Why would I have taken my son to the hospital if I was against treatment? It doesn’t make sense,” the mother said.
The 22-year-old woman who is accused of refusing treatment for her malnourished baby won release yesterday.
For decades, the U.S.-based Nation of Moorish-Americans has espoused that, thanks to a historic treaty, millions of black Americans are actually a divine and sovereign people, and also citizens of Morocco.
