Here’s an update on the crew of evangelicals who got caught trying to smuggle stray children out of Haiti.
First, the lawyer who has been representing the evangelicals in Haiti courts faces sex trafficking charges that pre-date the Haiti kidnapping episode. He also has no license to practice law in Haiti. Make of that what you will.
It appears the accused kidnappers for Christ have yet to be released. But never fear; their cause has been taken up by U.S. righties, who are outraged at how the kidnap crew is being treated. Glenn Greenwald points out that U.S. righties have, um, a double standard.
In other news — there’s a long article from the New York Times Sunday magazine on the ongoing efforts of conservative Christians to use public schools to indoctrinate children. Highly recommended.
