21. No,they had no business there

May 24

Every culture that has existed for the last two thousand years has been destroyed by missionaries "preaching the word"

Their people have been slaughtered, their culture overrun.Mind you own damned business - your religion is a constant flow of contradictions and is A GUILT BASED con. Christianity has not been the panacea promised.

They had no business being there. Insane. #PoisonwoodBible TomDaisy May 24 #1

It happened at a church. A Haitian was also killed. Haiti is crazy right now. Americans shouldn't be there. LeftInTX May 24 #39
Yes, I agree with all of that... Think. Again. May 24 #41
I doubt if that was why they were killed. The mission runs a school and group home. LeftInTX May 24 #42
I have no idea why they were killed... Think. Again. May 24 #44
What if they were working for the UN? Often UN workers get killed in conflicts. Even vaccine workers get killed. LeftInTX May 24 #45
You do realize that the UN.... Think. Again. May 24 #46
