This is terrible, and I don't want to blame this on all the Baptists, because they come in at least 3 flavors that I know of. These are Idaho Baptists, appearently some of the worst there is.

Of course, they're claiming it's all just a misunderstanding, but there is MONEY behind this, and it has to do with adoptions: they can adopt these kids out (for money including govt. money) once they get them fattened up in the Dominican Republic.

What next? Here is the group claiming it was all a big misunderstanding. Was it really?

I agree it must be a big misunderstanding. Being Baptist from Idaho, they may have no idea that you have to grease the skids even to do a good deed. Who knows, all the grease skidders may also have been killed. Remember, Idaho is a red state. If they would have been Baptist from Atlanta, they would have knwon that you had to render unto Caesar's pocket to do a good deed. I wonder if Caesar had a Swiss bank account?

It's a shameful day for the Baptists no matter what state they're from.

These Idaho Baptists went to the Dominican Republic and found an empty hotel and rented it out.

Then, they went into Haiti and started taking these kids without any paperwork at all. In fact, I don't think the parents even got a RECEIPT for the child they gave up to these international traffikers.

Kids were taken from their parents on the same day they approached the parents. No cooling off period for a change of mind, nothing.

This group is being condemned by other charitable groups for their actions in this matter.

So your really think their actions were of nefarious intent? I see them as being very naive thinking they could save the world one person at a time. If they had criminal intent, taking the children from Haiti to the Dominican Republic is like taking your criminal activity from Atlanta to Birmingham, your much more likely to be busted in Birmingham. They now know what every Donkey knows, it takes a mega-buck government programs to change the world.

It does appear to be a fact that some (or most) of these kids simply were not orphans. They had parents.

If nothing else, it is a wake-up call that some due process has to be put in motion and followed down there or it will become more lawless than it already was to begin with.

Yohoo, Pastor Crow, you need to update your story.

Baptists appear in better light today as Haitian judge investigates. http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/35221007/ns/world_news-haiti_earthquake/

I have some understanding of the problem as our own church has a rather murkey past when it comes to our missionary work. The work of our brother Jesuits in the old days comes to mind.

Anyone in need of a good laugh about the exploits of the Jesuits and other religious foibles may want to read "Candide" by Voltaire. One of the funniest books ever written.
