TORONTO - In the heart of pastoral Ontario, Carol Christie lived a nightmare that she insists exists to this day. And finally the OPP are looking into her bombshell allegations of a church cult that condones polygamy, underage sex, physical abuse and brainwashing.
Now 59, Christie once dreamed of being a nurse. Instead, her mother groomed her to be the sex slave of Stan King, a charismatic, self-proclaimed “Prophet” of a fundamentalist Mormon sect who decreed he could have as many wives as he wanted.
Including girls as young as 10-years-old.
When Christie was 18, she says she was beaten and drugged by a fellow member of the Church of Jesus Christ Restored, and then taken to live with King and his other wives at his farmhouse in Sauble Beach. He was 24 years her senior.
Eventually the church would buy a bankrupt ski resort outside of Owen Sound and set up residence. She soon won his favour because she bore him two sons. “I belonged to the Prophet. He owned you and you danced to his rules and you did whatever would make him happy,” Christie recalled bitterly.
Even if that included group sex.
