A group of Baptist operating in Haiti was caught and is being detained by law enforcement for trying to flee the country with a bus filled with Haitian children, apparently, with little or no regard for the victim’s parents or next of kin. Some offered that the group is so doped on their religious views and indoctrination of the children that local laws and rules do not apply.
The officials are suspicious of child trafficking, since the group had no documents or paper work authorizing them to transport the children from their home country.
"Saving" the children by indoctrinating and brainwashing them. Same as domination, control and manipulation. If the allegations really are true, the group that went there is incredibly arrogant and feel they are above the law.
I'm sure Pat Robertson is proud of them and reserving a special place in heaven for them.
Being religious doesn't give a group of people the right to take children away from their country of birth without the right paperwork, permissions and extensive checks.
In natural disasters, children need to be protected and reunited with their natural families if at all possible. Support should then be given to those families if they need food, shelter, medical attention and education.
The situation in Haiti is not an opportunity for childless couples to grab a child to adopt or religious groups to bag a few kids that they can convert. People who genuinely want to help an orphan with no family by adopting them in these situations need to go through the proper channels, even though it may take a long time

Is religious attendance up or down (increasing/decreasing) where you live?Some churches appear to be growing, while others are closing and being sold. Finding students who want to train for religious service appears difficult for some faiths. How is the religious climate where you live?
