#2560: Phoenix church helps support Haitian children (fwd)
Oh, brother, the mighty Christians are at it again!
Why, oh why, don't these organizations ever address the root causes of
poverty in Haiti? Economic exploitation by the USA and multinationals, the
disempowerment of women, etc., etc.
These groups might feed a few children (I guess in this case girls need not
apply), but down the hatch with the food goes religious indoctrination,
usually a right-wing political line, anti-Vodou propaganda, and a philosophy
of "resignation" and dependance.
When one of these churches goes and pickets USAID, when they start to agitate
against sexism and domestic violence, when they RESPECT Vodou clergy just
like they would respect Rabbis or Catholic priests back home in the USA, then
I will start to pay attention to them.
Peace and love,
