    Thanks for the interesting post, as always!

    I am esp. interested in the Color Lines piece - it somehow fits in with a newish front in over-seas evangelical mission work and adoption. The discussion and criticism has lit up a lot of folks I know...
    This book started it all, I think
    then this type of response
    and then this

    as you can imagine, this is a very emotional issue, but for all involved, very important to start to talk about.

      and interesting debate.

      I don't trash all the work done by evangelicals - I saw really good people doing HIV/AIDS work no one else would touch in PR.  I've also seen the other side - so I tend to judge agencies (secular and Christian) on a case by case basis.

      Join us on the Black Kos front porch to review news and views written from a black pov—everyone is welcome.

        I am in touch, through Haiti and Katrina work, with many evangelicals. Have great respect for most, and am really glad this discussion is starting and it is fierce!!
        There is a lot of deep questioning going on about adoption in some circles, and as you can imagine the folks involved in Haiti are being touched by it - there is a huge market for children and the poverty of Haiti makes a perfect foil.
        I need to read the book - haven't yet, next one I order, though.
