No, this is false, Vodou has not been "banned".

The Haitian Constitution mandates freedom of religion.

The definition of Vodou as a "superstitious practice" has gone out the window, that's why the amendment regarding the prohibition of "superstitious practices" is no longer needed.

That's all, stop panicking.

Vodou will never die, Vodou is the majority religion of Haiti and there are thousands and thousands of non-Haitian Vodouisants in the USA and Europe.
