The abuse of children in third world countries is rarely good. It’s especially disturbing when done in the name of the Bible, such as is going on here on the Sudan Ugandan border. The Ugandan government obtained permission from the Sudan to pursue the LRA, a terrorist group intent on overthrowing the Ugandan government led by President Museveni. The LRA, which stands for the Lord’s Resistance Army, regularly kidnapps children and exploits them for labor and soldiers. Some 6000 children are thought to be in their control. I just want to take a moment to praise the Ugandan government for pursuing the eradication of the LRA. The Bible in no way condones nor teaches the actions commited by the LRA. It’s sad to see our Lord’s name used in such manner.
