The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has issued a strong rebuke of the former leader of Operation Underground Railroad.
Tim Ballard has made national headlines as the inspiration for the movie “Sound of Freedom,” but officials say he used the names of Church leaders without authorization.
Vice News published an article on Friday, reporting Tim Ballard regularly met with Acting President of the Quorum of Twelve Apostles, Elder M. Russell Ballard. Vice reported that Ballard claimed Elder Ballard – who are not related – kept in close contact about rescue missions, and that Elder Ballard was a partner in a for-profit venture called “Slave Stealers,” which would have controlled OUR and other non-profits to monetize the attention raised by OUR rescue missions.
