Newspapers are always quick to bring bad news. Blood and deviance is on the front page; ordinary people helping other people is buried behind the auto advertisements in the back.
All that being said, I'm glad these people are doing this work. I've been to Thailand many times, and have talked to many of the working girls there. One girl told me matter-of-factly that it was a choice of working in a mine for 12 hours a day for $5, or taking a half-hour roll in the hay with a sailor for $10. Not much of a choice.
It is a specific statement of condemnation of idolatry with no apologies. Any nation involved in idolatry basically opens Pandora's Box. With that rationalization, I should become a criminal. The pay (the way I would do it) sure beats what I'm doing now. However, the Bible teaches me a different way of life and to store up spiritual treasures in preparation for the life to come.
Buddhism, Hinduism, Animism, etc. 'isms all lead to incredibly evil societies and no rationalization, reasoning or "this is better than that" changes the fact that Jesus provided us with the best way. Christianity puts God first, all other religions put man first.
