More on kidnapping children for Jesus

So I seriously doubt that they were actually kidnapping children for nefarious purposes. More like they honestly thought they were doing a good thing, and that because they claim allegiance to a mythic sky god they were somehow above the law and so no one would stop them.

Er, sorry, it doesn't work that way. You can pray all you want to, but you still have to fill out the paperwork, just like the all the godless heathens in the world.

I'm calling this a very harsh lesson in equality.

What's even more telling is that the Christian blogosphere, or as much of it as I've been able to track, was all up in arms when this report first came out, and everyone thought it was child slave trafficking. But once they heard it was Christian Missionaries taking children for adoption by Christian parents so they could finds a "new life in Christ" they all shut up on the subject.

Call me a cynic, but I can only interpret their lack of condemnation as support. perhaps kidnapping children to brainwash them into the faith isn't such a bad thing in their eyes.

Which is disturbing as all hell.
