Comments on: Haiti voodoo leader urges halt to cholera lynchings of priests Religion, faith and ethics Sat, 23 Apr 2016 23:25:07 +0000 hourly 1 By: PierreLherisson Mon, 27 Dec 2010 01:33:33 +0000 The Voodoo religion has been a redoubtable force in the Haitians cultural landmark and a fearsome obstacle that prevent total control by Western powers who have been trying to uproot voodoo in in Haiti for over 500 years. The current killing is instigated by outsiders.
Humanity and Voodoo emerged from Africa. Voodoo is the progenitor of all religions. Africa and Africans in the diaspora should get rid of the second hand religions such as Christianity, Muslim, Hinduism and others. Blacks should go back to the Alma matter-Voodoo .The other races will continue to disrespect Blacks as long Blacks continues to embrace those foreign religions.
Get rid of the Arya Sathya Vedam, the Bible, and the Koran. They were tailored for the interest and glorification of those people. That is why African names and tribes are omitted on them. That is why those people are vilifying the Voodoo and other aspects of the African culture and saying Africans have no history and culture. Respect has to be mutual not one way street.
Voodoo has 50 million follower worldwide that include: Bahamas, Barbados, Belize, Benin, Brazil, Cuba, Dominican Republic,Ghana,Guyana,Haiti,Jamaica,Nige ria,Puerto-Rico,Surinam,Togo,Trinidad, USA, Venezuela and Virgin Islands.  / tm ts-of-the-bible/ nweb/factfile/Unique-facts-Caribbean12.h tm  /Voodoo/voodoo.htm

By: Wandy2u Sun, 26 Dec 2010 15:21:56 +0000 This religion deserves the same protections that we expect in our own religions, the persecution of priests is a misguided attempt to destroy this religion. The ignorance of the source of the cholera, and the willingness to motivate people to act on this ignorance is no different than the witch hunts that were motivated by ignorance in mid-evil Europe.
I do not support the voo-doo religion in any way, but it is up to its followers who choose to believe in it, to form and worship in their own ceremonial system. This is their chioce and it should be protected the same as freedom of religion should be protected everywhere.
