I guess what I’m trying to say is that no, it’s not acceptable to place a sign in a child’s hand to promote killing, but the situation is complicated by the fact that the people who support the child are supporting their own beliefs and don’t necessarily feel they are doing anything wrong. Perhaps they even think they are being globally just by supporting what they believe in.
I think the whole issue boils down to the difference between the Western vs. Other views. Different cultures have different beliefs, influencing where loyalty lies. Like Bethany suggests, perhaps the best way to deal with cultural differences is to understand perceived threats – maybe this is the answer to dealing with exploitation of innocent children.
