Lions and Tigers and Baptists, Oh My!

Seems I’m not the only one who has been bothered by Baptist bent on burglering babies.  Haiti is having it’s own problems with that plague.  For those who have been under a rock, a bunch of Baptists on a mission decided they could just load up some kids off the street and whisk them away to a better life.  God knows if they were allowed to stay with their parents they might take up dancing.

While the dunkers don’t seem too good at this whole child trafficking thing, I wonder about what’s happening with folks who a little better at it.  The disciples of John seem to think that Jesus will provide some type of spiritual-diplomatic immunity, others know better.  They are craftier, sneakier, smarter.  Child snatching isn’t just something they do with their vacation time, it’s their profession.

Make no mistake, they are in Haiti.  They are looking, taking, profiting.

Right now everybody seems to be focused on the folks that got caught.  Maybe we should think about the others that are surely still out there.

In happier places, the weather relented a bit this weekend and I was able to go outside without risking my exposed skin freezing in a matter of minutes.  That was something.

  1. I wondered the same thing – given the chaos in Haiti, how many professional baby burglars simply paid off the border guards? Authorities estimate up to 2000 children a year are kidnapped in Haiti annually, and that was BEFORE the quake.

    Nothing like evangelicals who KNOW God is on their side – in this case perhaps She was on the kids’ side, by making sure the criminals got caught before they could whisk the merchandise off to the Dominican Republic, where they had plans to build an orphanage/school/church complete with resort cabins and cafes for prospective American adoptive parents. Total marketing concept! Come for fun in the sun on the beach, bring a baby home for Jesus and save him from voodoo.

    At least UNICEF and Save the Children are warning people to NOT attempt to adopt children of this tragedy.
