I read the linked profile of him, also a good read, and one of his friends cited him falling prey to a "dangerous set of ideologies." Well no shit, but enough about Christianity, particularly evangelical varieties as offered by the Oral Roberts Universities of the world. Why did anyone allow this idiotic fantasy to fester? He had apparently wanted to do this since he was a boy. I'm sure it was just "it's so great he's REALLY doing the Lord's work!"

Why nobody disabused him of this bullshit is borderline criminal to me, if not prima facie evidence of mass delusion. This outcome is exactly what everyone, including Chau, figured was likely. How many adults around this kid told him what a great thing he was preparing for?

Sidebar; it’s hysterical to me that we have missionaries at all in 2018, but letting these people die out is the right answer to the question underlining that article, whether some group wants to give them either Jesus or just a continued society. They are not going to integrate into the modern world, apparently don’t want to, I’m not sure what is even under discussion. Bring a few of them to the mainland and get them all iPads?

“Don’t overplay. Don’t overplay. Less is more. It will always be: less is more. Nobody is ever going to remember all those fancy solos - even the guys that play them, most of them won’t remember - so play some licks that people can walk away humming, that people can identify with." --Steve Cropper
