From a press release issued today by the American Baptist Churches USA:
Important Correction To Media Reports About Baptists Arrested In Haiti
The 10 people arrested for child trafficking in Haiti are not members of churches affiliated with American Baptist Churches USA (ABCUSA). Some media sources have labeled these individuals as American Baptists. While the people involved are Baptists from the United States, they are not members of the denomination known as ABCUSA.
ABCUSA currently has missionaries doing ministry in Haiti, but they are not involved in this incident in any way.
Something tells me that if Baptists from America, but not American Baptist Churches USA members were being praised for their efforts rescuing Haitian orphans this press release would have never been issued.
