Totally Missing the Point

The World, advertised as a "Christian Magazine," completely and utterly misses the point about the Indian Child Welfare Act, instead portraying tribal governments as thuggish, indifferent to the suffering of children, and cruel. Barely a mention is made of the historical reasons behind the Act, and NOTHING is said of the countless numbers of Indian children who were forcibly kidnapped from their families and handed off to white families, to have their culture beaten (sometimes literally) out of them.
