To David sommer,

It is unethical to give desperate people information which is so heavily biased. Especially those who are in poverty. I support your missionary aims however you must understand the difference between helping people and leading people with information which has not been checked thoroughly and therefore giving misleading information. Please do not use your power to influence peoples mind. This is wrong. You are there to help them with their lives, not make them politically aware. A very similar case was foiled in 2009 where american troops were planning to hand out Bibles in Afghanistan.

Once again, please do not influence the minds of the poor. It is unethical. As a missionary worker, I am sure you will know what is right and what is wrong.

Thank you.
