I hope everybody gets home safely to their families and the kidnappers find jobs to help their families without breaking the law or hurting anybody.

Haiti is bordering on being a failed state.

As if there aren't plenty of places these American Protestant zealots couldn't help in their own country, they have to go abroad and get into trouble.

I have a hard time mixing the kind, honorable, hard-working, Haitians who I know in the legally US with the gangs described above. When I think of Haitians, I see in my mind a happy, smiling, people trying to make a better life for themselves and their family back in Haiti.

BTW, 87% of Haitians say they are "Christians", so "missionaries" aren't exactly pushing a religion onto unwilling people. The French colonists certainly had huge hand indoctrinating people there into Christianity.

From religious families in the US, it is common to send teenage kids to Latin America for 2-4 weeks each summer with a church group. There are many reasons for that which are beneficial for the kids AND the people in those locations.
