    Re: Haiti detains Americans taking kids across border

    Since these Church members are Central Valley Baptist Church in Meridian, Idaho and the East Side Baptist Church in Twin Falls, Idaho I am a lot concerned than I would be if they were from Utah and members of the radica Mormon Cult of child exploitation preteen rape and abandonment of young boys to eliminate competition.
    These people just seem to out of touch with reality in doing this incredibly stupid stunt.

    " ... The Americans said the youngsters had all lost their parents in the quake.
    But George Willeit, a spokesman in Port-au-Prince for SOS Children's Villages, which is now looking after the children, says at least one of them, a little girl, said her parents were alive.
    He told journalists the girl said she had believed she was being taken to a boarding school or summer camp.

    Mr Willeit said many of the children had been found to be in poor health, hungry and dehydrated.
    One of the smallest - just two or three months old - was so dehydrated she had to be taken to hospital, he added.
    Haitian authorities said none of the children had documentation or proof they were actually parentless.

    "This is an abduction, not an adoption," Haitian Social Affairs Minister Yves Christallin told AFP news agency.
    The leader of the Idaho-based group, Laura Silsby, said the arrests were the result of a mistake. .... "

    You betcha!

    So the Haitian authorities should've just waved them across the border?

    Tell me, what's to stop bad guys from saying "hey, we're religious relief workers who are transporting these orphans to an orphanage in the DR"?

    We've all read this. They weren't taking the kids home, they were moving them to a better orphanage.

    Irrespective of their intentions, and I, for one, am prepared to accept their good intentions on face value, they were committing an obviously illegal act. To take young children across an international border without prior authorisation, and/or appropriate documentation, is so obviously illegal even to the dumbest high school kid, that I am incredulous that the people concerned were ignorant of this fact. Particularly as they are part of an organisation. Such a situation is horribly susceptible to abuse.

    Oh my God! They arrested another group of Baptists

    Port-au-Prince, Haiti - The Haitian government is in a chaotic state, now targeting numerous Baptist Mission groups for persecution. We learned today that a group of 19 Landover Baptist Church members are being held in Port-au-Prince after trying to take 125 children out of Haiti.

    The church group, most of them from Iowa, allegedly lacked the proper documents when they were arrested and handled in an uncivilized manner at 2 AM on Friday night in a bus caravan along with Haitian children aged two months to 16 years who had survived the earthquake. When police officers asked them for documents, group members held up their Bibles and said, "We're working for Jesus! And the Son of the Living God does not require any documentation!"

    Ha, those Baptist Americans are incurable. Are they not aware that Haitians are Satan-worshipper Catholics, for crissake!
