Washington Post – Va. Missionaries Talk of Raising Muslim Tsunami Victims in Christian Home: A Virginia-based missionary group said this week that it has airlifted 300 “tsunami orphans” from the Muslim province of Banda Aceh to Jakarta, the Indonesian capital, where it plans to raise them in a Christian children’s home… Most of the religious charities do not attach any conditions to their aid, and many of the larger ones – such as WorldVision, Catholic Relief Services and Church World Service – have policies against proselytizing. But a few of the smaller groups have been raising money among evangelical Christians by presenting the tsunami emergency effort as a rare opportunity to make converts in hard-to-reach areas.

I can see it now: “Now children, do you remember yesterday when we were talking about the tsunami being a punishment from the One True God…?”

This is why a wry smile crossed my face when I heard yesterday that Brown plans to get the US involved in his plan for Africa… especially when one of the central issues is the AIDS epidemic. He’s fooling himself if he thinks the US won’t have a bunch of ‘moral’ conditions attached.
