It’s a relentless fight to expose a cult-like religious group. Love Holy Trinity Blessed Mission is accused of brainwashing hundreds of Iowans. One Iowa woman is on a mission of her own…to bring the group down.
“The truth will set some free and will drive some crazy”, said Donna Backstrom. Her new web site, “A Cult In Our Midst” is getting a lot of attention…good and bad. She sat down one weekend and put together the latest detailed information about Love Holy Trinity Blessed Mission, and its leader. “What we need is a vehicle where we can share the truth, the true facts about Love Holy Trinity Blessed Mission. The fact that it’s a cult, and share some of the depths they go to separate families to alienate families”, said Backstrom.
It’s personal to Donna. Her niece Juanita is in the group. She lives in Chicago and hasn’t spoken with her mother or her Aunt Donna in nearly a year. “I have high hopes of getting her back one day, but I’m not silly enough to think it will happen by magic. We’re chipping away at this cult brick by brick we’re getting there”.
Donna’s web site is just the tip of the iceberg. She has so much information on the group, she’s in the process of writing a book. “The book will have everything, but what I want for now is just day by day. What’s happening in Chicago…what’s happening here”, said Backstrom. It’s just another way to raise awareness like letting people know the group is not recognized by the Catholic Church. “We have lives at stake, not just my family, other families”, said Backstrom. All reasons why she refuses to give up.
Our repeated calls to Love Holy Trinity Blessed Mission over the last several months have not been returned.
