Aristide has finally lost the plot...

Haiti Officially Sanctions Voodoo

Thu Apr 10

By MICHAEL NORTON, Associated Press Writer

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti - Haiti's government has officially sanctioned voodoo as a religion, allowing practitioners to begin performing ceremonies from baptisms to marriages with legal authority.

Many who practice voodoo praised the move, but said much remains to be done to make up for centuries of ridicule and persecution in the Caribbean country and abroad.


Voodoo priest Philippe Castera said he hopes the government's decree is more than an effort to win popularity amid economic and political troubles.


"In spite of our contribution to Haitian culture, we are still misunderstood and despised," said Castera, 48.


In an executive decree issued last week, President Jean-Bertrand Aristide invited voodoo adherents and organizations to register with the Ministry of Religious Affairs.


After swearing an oath before a civil judge, practitioners will be able to legally conduct ceremonies such as marriages and baptisms, the decree said.

Well there's no two ways about it.

Either you get rid of all of them by chopping their heads off, or you let it go.

I would chop their heads off, and not just voodoo sh!t in Haiti, all of witchcraft throughout the planet.

He couldn't do it alone, that's fer sure. Cleaning up Haiti would not solve the problem, and it would creep back in. Getting rid of the problem of witchcraft requires a global and permanent solution, which must also include international crime controlled by NY jews... Babylon.

a great new home-based business and it should be easy.... a licensed Voodoo Acupuncturist!...stick a few acupuncture needles in a voodoo doll (the ones imported from Haiti are best), while at the exact same time, halfway across the country, it's also treating some guys lower back pain... Amazing, but true! He gets instant relief and you get instantly richer. It's just that simple!... best part is that you can do this in the comfort of home, sitting around in your robe all day watching soap operas!... if someone doesn't pay their bill, I find that repeatedly jabbing one of the needles between their voodoo dolls eyes seems to do the trick....

it is called freedom to worship.
look at catholics.... they convert wine to blood and drink it.
look at jews they perform genital mutilation.
voodoo is a religion, a way of worship, that is all.

speakin' of genital mutilation.....

In a three-hour operation in February at the Nil Ratan Sircar Medical College Hospital in Calcutta, India, doctors performed what they claimed was the world's first penis transplant. Dr. Ashok Ray, lead surgeon, had been in the process of removing a troublesome second penis on a 1-year-old boy when someone elsewhere in the hospital informed him that a baby boy had just been born without one. [Courier-Mail (Brisbane), 2-25-03]

what a lucky kid!..the one that received the penis..unless havin two wouldn't be more trouble than it was worth...maybe not...could be very popular with the ladies....:P
