Bad Judgement

February 2, 2010

What were they thinking???

A group of ten people from Central Valley Baptist Church in Idaho have been arrested in Haiti and charged with child trafficking.  They arrived in Haiti, gathered a group of children,supposedly orphans,  loaded them on a bus, and headed back out.  They never intended to try proper channels.  

They thought the end justified the means.

They were wrong.

The goal of providing good homes for orphans is a wonderful goal.  That doesn’t mean that you can just go grab a few children off the streets and make a run for the border.  They should have gone through the proper channels and done things legally.  Yes, it takes longer, and costs more money, but it should be done the right way. Of course, now that they are sitting in a jail, they probably realize that they should have done things differently.  I do not believe that they were going to harm the children.  I believe that they have good hearts…just really, really, really, bad judgement.
