Ten U.S. Baptists detained trying to take 33 children out of earthquake-shattered Haiti without government permission
Ok, my first comment on this story is that these people came all the way from IDAHO to rescue orphans?
I mean like ok, let me not be to cynical here but I just don't get it. Not to mention these guys don't look
to be dressed like "christian" ministers to me more like a)cult followers or b) opportunist trying to traffic the
children out of the country. Just something in these guys eyes just doesn't sit well with me. I still can't get
over the fact of leaving from IDAHO to bring orphans across the border. Did a church in Haiti even call
for their help? If not then WHY are they even there? I think the Red Cross and other organizations are in
a much better position to help the people of Haiti. I would like to help the children of Haiti but you don't
see me boarding a plane to the Dominican Republic and making my way into Haiti to rescue orphans - why?
Because that's the governments job.
I hope someone gets to the bottom of this and can make sense out of this because right now I'm just seeing
a whole lot of crazy.
