    But today we learn, that of the 33 children, 21 were not even orphans. They came in fact from the same village and were willingly given up by the parents/relatives or so it seems. Even if the parents willing gave up these children, then it STILL requires official documentation and permission from the authorities and still does not explain why these 10 said they were orphans when they were not. What else did they "lie" about?

    I fully understand the situation in Haitii but that does not excuse these people for breaking local laws and international law on the subject regardless of their intentions.
    The parents are willing to give them up because of the poverty. That means a need for food and water.

    You don't know that. There is a lot we don't know about this.

    Which is why I re-emphasize that it is premature to make a conclusion as to who is right and wrong with so little information available as of yet.

    But you must admit that this portrayal of Pete's that they were riding around snatching unsuspecting kids up off their doorsteps to take them to the Dominican Republic is a bit dishonest considering what we already do know.

    What does he think these baptists were doing? Fulfilling their master plan to run their very own Dominican orphanage by repopulating it with Haitians?

    That's just dumb.

    So poverty in Haiti is not the reason?

    Does the rest of the US contingent wisk victims across the border into the DR in order to give the food and water?

    Victim: I need food and water.

    US Relief Worker: Quick, cross the border with me and Jesus will feed you

    There's also no indication that this is what happened either. Let's at least make an attempt at honesty before you start with the typical Christian bashing.

    Nice try but sounds like sarcasm and BS to me

    Sometimes I think you guys look to see if someone is listed as being "liberal" and then post something that has absolutely nothing to do what was said, make a smiley to make yourself feel superior, and then sit back thinking that somehow you have made a good point and that everyone is in awe of your superior debating skills.

    It's a puzzle, that's for sure.
