Hmmmm... It is not the first time that the Catholic church has launche an attack on Vodou in Haiti, I wonder why the sudden attack... I am no expert but I... don't understand it...

According to an article by the Guardian, Cardinal Chibly Langlois says that RICH people in Haiti go a doctor when they are sick, POOR people go see a Voodoo priest...

The Cardinal says RICH people go to court in Haiti to find JUSTICE, POOR people to a Voodoo priest for REVENGE...

Cardinal Chibly Langois also suggest that Haitian vodou practitioners are ASHAMED of their religion and "That's why voodoo ceremonies are conducted at night-time. They are ashamed to say they practice it..."

Mezanmi... Se pa ti koze non pitit... Kisa-w panse de bagay saa?

Potestan yo fann nan dèyè katolik yo poutèt y'ap adore Manman Marie, men Katolik yo lage nan dèyè Vodouisant yo... LOL... Bagay Malè...

What do you think about this?

Katolic pa adore Marie non paske se Jesus sel ki merite adorasyon.

Nou katolic, nou venere e onore Marie ki te di wi pou nou ka gen lavi. Nou rekonet lu kom manman nou paske se Jesus menki te dil anvanl li te remet souf li sou bwa lakwa.

Li di "fanm men pitit ou, epi li di Jean men manmanw" depi le sa Jean te pran Marie lakay li. Alo se sak fè nou men katolic nou pran Marie lakay nou paske li se manman nou. En tan manman Bondyé, li merite respè.

Wow! The Catholic religion never ceases to amaze me. It is true that Vaudun needs some serious reform thus looking inside to rid itself of many bad elements that can be self destructive.

However, as a science, the only thing in Haiti which has the capacity to help mold us together as a people if reformed is Vaudun.

No other imported religion, faith or sect can have that power to unite for a common cause.

Pratike vodou pa anmède pesonn, se zòt ki toujou bezwen moun vini anba pye yo pou moleste lè yo vle, o non de sesi, onon de sela.

Se yo ki pou padonnen peche-w.

Sak peche ya?

I do agree totally with the Cardinal, and I realize that the well-known names are late. They should mention and work on this lasting aspect so long time way before twenty 1st Century.

Maybe by fear or society they did not do it. Therefore, I always wonder if the problem isn't about a wrongly sharing of voodoo by our ancestry roots.

Because a rational cult would not performing against its own skillful folks, as most of us are witnessed of so many bad examples, and it isn't from the cult itself but from the rehearsal minds.

Il nous serait impossible d'ignorer que le vaudou ne soit une référence historicoculturelle chez nous, en tant que Nation de 1804. Cependant, dire que le Vaudou est tout à fait la lanterne de notre culture, après avoir jaugé notre conscience innée, nous, les observateurs du vaudou total, en avons d' ailleurs, de reserve et même de cicatrices psychologiques à l'égard de ce mythe qui en effet, mérite d'être fondamentalement réorienté pour le bien des nôtres qui, s'envoûtent pour ainsi dire inconsciemment, d'où cet indéniable débat s'aurait accusé quasiment dartdif.

En toute fiabilité, que la logique de la considération du Cardinal Chibly Langlois, tant attendue soit bien reçue au sein de tous ceux qui se sentent ou se disent concernés aux causes de souffrances inédites ou chroniques que fait face notre mère

To finish my point, so many people all over the world hate us because of this stupid religion (voodoo).

voodoo creates division among Haitians.

the country took independence more than 200 years.

what do we achieve with voodoo?

just poverty, Haitians must think positively and do things to change their life rationally.

if, great ideas can change the country, lets come with sensible thoughts to move

Mwen té okipé mwen pat ko gen tan bay opinion'm sou afè VOODO kap déroulé nan tout Haïti a.

An nou kontinyé déba sa a sou rézo a. Sa gen pou-l fini sélon yon rèv ké-m té fè entre 1996-1997; sa ap banou yon idé kilè.

Nou sonjé ké 4 bandis té kòmansé men-nen yon atack kont Jean Bertrand Aristide pou-l té kité pouvwa a en Haiti, lè sa a mwen té en Haïti, lè mwen tap tandé kòman pèp Haitien té itilizé radio nan tout kwen d'Haiti pou yo té akizé Jean Bertrand Aristide ak disip li yo kont bagay ki pat fè Bondyé plézi, mwen té oblijé rété bouche fèmen mwen té wè bagay yo maké sang, mwen pa bézwen alé nan plis détay, men mwen enkouragé nou pou-n partajé avek Haïtien ki fèt en 1993 a 2014; ki aktivité kriminèl ki tap réglé en Haïti nan moman sa a.
