Journalist Threatened After Reporting About Christian Legislator Who Gave Adopted Children To Abuser

In March 2013, Justin Harris shared photos of the newly adopted girls on some of his social media accounts – the photos have since been deleted. By October of that same year, for an unknown reason, the Harrises decided they didn’t want the girls they adopted anymore, so they decided to “rehome” them, which means they legally gave the girls to another family – Eric and Stacey Francis. Eric Francis, who had worked as head teacher at Harris’ Growing God’s Kingdom Preschool, was charged with sexually assaulting the oldest adopted daughter in April 2014.

After the Arkansas Times reported this story on *March 4, 2015, journalist Benjamin Hardy wrote a follow-up article dated March 5, 2015 titled Rep. Nate Bell blasts adoption story before seeing it; ‘rehoming’ bill introduced. Hardy explained his initial article received a lot of attention on social media, noting that people are outraged at the idea that adopted children can be handed off to another family with no consequences for the parents.

2. I for one am not surprised by the story.

Justin Harris and his ilk, seem to think that Christianity gives them a shield against anyones opinion of their behavior. West Fork is right smack dab in the part of the state where the Duggars and their quiverfull movement hold court. After all if you criticize any of their behavior you are attacking Christianity!
Justin Harris and his daycare were involved in a story not that long ago about them teaching their religion in a daycare that recieves state funding. It's truly amazing to me that 2 of our most liberal cities are surrounded by such backwards thinking individuals!

5. so Harris R owns the pre-school, hired pedos with state money & even gave away state adopted kids

2012-Growing God’s Kingdom relies on Arkansas Better Chance state money to fund schooling for low-income families. This year the school has received $534,000, according to the Department of Human Services.

7. You don't "re-home" children. They are not stray kittens.

 

The absolute gall of Harris makes my head hurt. He belongs in prison, and should never be allowed near a child again.

8. This is the most disturbing story I have read

in a very long time. "Rehoming" children like they were stray animals sounds like a pedophile's dream come true. Just beyond disgusting.
