"Kidnapping for Jesus"

Imagine if a voodoo minister from Haiti had shown up in Boise after an earthquake, looking for children in poor neighborhoods and offering “opportunities for adoption” back to Haiti.

Good rant by Tim Egan in the NYT about the Christianist missionary urge.

The same thought had occurred to me.

Although if I had >140 characters I might have worked a smutty reference to the missionary position. Because that's the kind of juvenile that I am.

You're not juvenile. I know this because I am supremely mature, and the only reason I didn't make a missionary position joke was because I couldn't think of a funny enough one.

Oh, and congrats on beating the MSM to the punch. Sorry I missed it when you first tweeted it.
