Nickel with tin plating

We probably have a lot of common ground. There are many times I wonder if Christians understand Christianity.Nan - I am pretty sure that you were among the Good Guys - and I have it on the authority of a friend who was one of the last Peace Corps workers in Haiti - when the Peace Corps pulled out in 2005 - that without the Christian missionaries she believed that Haiti would essentially collapse.
As you have perceived, I am not a fan of religious missionaries - not of any ilk - This entire hemisphere would have been better off without Columbus coming "with a sword to conquer in the name of Christ" (which is oxymoronic, imho) and following perhaps the earth based religions of the North American indigenous people...
Have never actually met a Christian missionary who was tolerant of pagans - And I am really not such a fan of "the Good Book" which ends pretty badly - again - imho...
But - I am a huge fan of Jesus - I just don't see much of him in his followers.
but - well - it is what it is...
Again, as a small potato, I did not see anything bad. I heard rumors about MINISTUAH while they were there. That's about it.
