People living in dumps and 11 year old prostitutes..
I get news feeds about Nica. One of them was this:
It describes a "reporter" who is going to Nicaragua with 30 other women to take "supplies" to a dump....what ever that means....because people live off of the dump and sell little 11 year old girls into prostitution. This is all "funded" by an institution called Forward Edge. Forward Edge is an evangelical organization whose website spends most of their efforts asking for donations. Ok...I won't go there.
Does anyone living in Nicaragua know of, or have witnessed, or has any knowledge of people living off of dumps or selling 11 year old girls into prostitution?
Those of you who live in Nicaragua...please help me understand the reality of Nicaragua.
OK... I will go there...Stories like this bring out the worst in America (USA) sensationalist journalism and evangelical sh*t that sends hordes of bible thumping do gooders that are only interested in short term press releases and feel good sermons when they get back home. How do real Nicaraguans feel about these evangilicals? Do they (evangilcals) do any real long term good?
I guess what upsets me is this blatant self promotion and the negative image that is presented about Nicaragua, and it is all cloaked in the purity of Christianity.
Once again, I have posted something that I will probably regret.
