Arrogant Americans 0, Haiti 1

The group of American baptists who went to Haiti to "save the children" by shuttling them across the border to the Dominican Republic is the latest example of the arrogance of Americans who think they know what's best for Latin Americans, as well as those who do whatever they do in the name of their personal God. Christians and other evangelizing groups are everywhere, spreading their own gospel "truths" and "converting" the natives. It's the old colonial mentality at its best, often under the guise of "doing good."
Perhaps the United Nations or the U.S. Congress could institute a ban on all missionaries... It would be a start.
