Sound Off: Your comments 2/4/10

Editor's Note: After last night's AC360°, many of you wrote in to comment on the Americans charged with kidnapping in Haiti. What do you have to say about the program? We want to hear from you.

With abundant orphans in Haiti, these Christians were doing a very un-Christian breaking up of existing families with false promises of a “better life”. This should be held up to legal consequences.

Why hasn't anyone mentioned the 34 Haitian children taken by the Pennsylvania Governor, Ed Rendell, days after the earthquake? Where are these children now?

I think you are being distracted by the missionaries from the real story of what is happening to the children of Haiti – the ones that are actually being sold into slavery. And I wouldn't be surprised if Haiti's government was behind it too with using the missionaries as a distraction as to what is really going on. Set your eyes elsewhere and I bet you find much worse.

    These other nine people probably didn't know what the real intent was of this supposed Christian woman. After watching your report last night I'm of the opinion that she should be convicted of deceiving members of her church into thinking they were going to "rescue" children in Haiti. Not to mention, attempted kidnapping and ignoring proper legal ways to help. Send the other nine home and let it be a lesson learned for them.
    Also, let's not lose focus on the other children in Haiti who are still very vulnerable to illegal slavery and other unsavory situations.

    Is the corrupt haitian government charging the well intension church delegates who want to give these children a better life? Why should I believe on this government that is known for corruption?

    In reference to the 10 Americans who are charged with kidnapping, I feel what the Haitians are doing is absolutely ridiculous. The Haitian government could not take care of their people before the earthquake so how do they expect to take care of them now. I realize this church group was over zealous, but they had good intentions and did not mean any harm. At this time I will not donate anything to this country and most of my friends feel the same way until they allow the Americans to come back to the U.S.

    What this woman did, is not the Christian way of doing things, if anything actions like this is what gives Christians a bad name. After seeing your report, I do think the other nine people involved may have been trying to do the right thing for the right reasons, they may not have known what they were getting into.

    My comment follows a comment that hits the nail on the head. I did not want to believe that to follow the Hati tradgedy it had to be scandal that would keep the story and ratings going. All the millions people funneled through there is proof enough to know we are iterested in knowing how the money is spent and that the relief is getting there. WHERE ARE THE TENTS? I think the story behind the story is why are Hatian famillies giving up their children? It would lead me to believe relief efforts and a better tomorrow looks doubtful to the Hati's parents.
