ill wait and see what happens. maybe it was a mistake? you guys seem awfully sure about this. and russunition seems to have already decided. but, i guess it only matters in certain cases.
now, if some of those kids had parents, then i would say they are all better off not being in haiti. happy?
I haven't made my mind up yet, just going by what many of the news sources are reporting at the moment. Nobody has the right to take children away from their parents unless the parents are directly harming or willfully neglecting the kids. Taking kids out of a country without following procedure is not only ethically wrong but also highly dangerous... it could be a fucking paedophile ring for all we know (the Catholic church turned out to be, maybe the Baptists are too).
How would Americans feel if Swiss religious groups were taking kids out of the US because American society was so 'dangerous' and because the 'quality of life' would be better in Switzerland? A ridiculous comparison I'll admit, but it's the same logic. You can't just do what you please because of the subjective opinions of a small group of people, there are procedures to be followed. Your attitude reminds me of the way the Australian authorities tried to resettle Aboriginal kids with white families only to have to apologise for the horrible atrocity years later.
