There's a great article in the times online by Richard Dawkins about the loathsome attitudes of the religious when natural disasters happen such as the recent one in Haiti. Further religious loathsomeness was in evidence the other day also when a group of US baptists were caught trying to smuggle children out of Haiti no doubt to take them back tothe US to save their souls and have them adopted.
The fact that they had not bothered to check if all the children were in fact orphans or, even worse, follow the necessary procedures for getting approval to take the children out of the country illustrates once again the arrogance of the religious when they are "on gods mission". Law, morality, common sense , logic - none of it matters when the religious think they have Gods calling to do his work.
Fortunately these Baptists were caught before they could spirit the children away and they are going to be dealt with by the Haitian law. No doubt they will get a slap on the wrist and sent on their way given that the US is the major player in the disaster recovery operation. Haiti unfortunately simply cant afford to have problems with the US at this point. These child stealing baptists really deserve to be in jail for child abduction..
