• Christian Churches Redefine the Meaning of "Orphan" to Justify Participating in Child Trafficking

    The recent arrest of Mormon Paul Petersen in Arizona, a politician and adoption attorney, has shown the public that religious institutions and churches are a big reason why child trafficking exists today. Paul Petersen allegedly used his position in the Mormon Church to move to the Marshall Islands as a missionary, learn the local language and culture, and set up a very lucrative adoption business trafficking pregnant women and their babies to the U.S. The child trafficking business today, which includes trafficking children from outside the U.S. into the U.S. through adoption agencies, as well as trafficking children within the U.S. through the government-funded foster care system, is quite possibly the most lucrative  businesses in the U.S. today, if one includes "legal" ways of trafficking children, as well as illegal ways. In the Petersen case, for example, his organization was illegally selling babies through adoption for $35,000.00 to $40,000.00 per child. This is not a problem strictly confined to the Mormon Church, nor to the Catholic Church which has been rocked with scandals regarding pedophile priests. The biggest religious player in trafficking children today, is probably the Evangelical Church. If the Evangelical Church immediately stopped participating in overseas adoptions, and stopped participating in the government-funded foster care system, it would have a serious impact in stopping the flow of child trafficking today. When one looks at the rationale used today by the Evangelical Church to participate in government-funded programs that are documented to be involved in child trafficking, we learn that the church is using the term "orphan" incorrectly, and instead of obeying scriptural principles to care for "orphans and widows," they are actually doing the opposite, by completely denying parental rights and participating in the lucrative child trafficking business.

    Hi:


    Please contact me. I agree with what you are saying 1000% and worked for years trying to expose the fake orphan scam in northern thailand by which missionaries trafficked Akha children to their own fake orphanages which were cash cows while they alienated these children from their culture.


    I believe these children were trafficked because of the use of deception for money profit.


    Churches in Oregon and beyond are involved in this evangelical scam.
