Evangelical Christians have been on the prowl for babies to adopt for the last decade or so. They even have a revivalist weekend every year called “Orphan Sunday.”

The drive for orphans has created a black-market for babies. In Guatemala it got so bad, gangs kidnapping babies, that the government had to step in and stop adoptions from the United States. Romania had to stop halted international adoptions, because kids were being bought from their parents.

Some Christian groups have begun to heed the call to do good works overseas, by focusing on aid that keeps families intact or improves local foster care and adoption


If it smells like religious intentions are involved, it’s got to be fu*ked up.
