Creepy Christian Group Travels to Thailand to Save Sex Workers For "Daddy"

 This is the story of a video by eleven young women from the U.S.–almost exclusively white–who went to Thailand to save the “bar girls” to Jesus. “We found that we were the perfect ones to fight for them,” say the title cards. “Because we used to be women in chains… Just like them.”

This is then illustrated by a series of “testimonies,” written in Sharpie on cardboard, squicktacularly set to the contemporary Christian song “When I’m With My Daddy.”

Just like a woman willingly or unwillingly providing sexual services in Phuket’s red-light district, their “chains” include masturbation, not fitting in a magazine, and perfectionism. “I stopped touching my neener through the grace of Jesus Christ–and so can you.”

I had sex … Now I’m pure

I struggle with masturbation … No condemnation for those who are in Christ

Felt like I was supposed to fit in a magazine … Now I fit perfectly in His arms

I labeled myself as an adulteress at 17 years old … Daddy called me his bride

Ew.
