The bishop of El Espinal in Colombia, Miguel Fernando González Mariño, thanked the producers of the film “Sound of Freedom” for exposing the “international multimillion-dollar commerce in children business” despite those who try to discredit the film.
“Sound of Freedom” was produced by Mexican actor and pro-life and family activist Eduardo Verástegui. The film is based on the true story of U.S. Homeland Security agent Tim Ballard — played by Jim Caviezel — who quits his job with the agency to go to the Colombian jungle and rescue children who have been kidnapped by sex traffickers.
In an article published on the diocesan website, González pointed out that the business of trafficking in minors “involves our country and demonstrates social and family degradation.”
The prelate, who also referred to the difficulties that the film faced in getting shown in the theaters, noted that “it doesn’t suit some people to talk about this scourge because it threatens their finances and they have taken it upon themselves to discredit this film.”
