(Reuters) - The head of Haiti's voodoo religion appealed to authorities Thursday to halt bloody lynchings of voodoo priests by people who blame them for causing the Caribbean country's deadly cholera epidemic.

Since the epidemic started in mid-October, at least 45 male and female voodoo priests, known respectively as "houngan" and "manbo," have been killed. Many of the victims were hacked to death and mutilated by machetes, Max Beauvoir, the "Ati" or supreme leader of Haitian voodoo, told Reuters.

It seems that as it is a poor nation that education is lacking and that the people are led to believe it is a curse. If the UN was there wouldnt they be able to treat people? It seems that chlolera is something that is VERY unpleasant.

Couldn't they have accused Palin of practicing voodoo when she was there not helping the situation at all?

I mean she has an army of zombies drooling and following her wherever she goes.

the haitians never learn, according to reports anywhere from 70 to 90 % of the people were practitioners and/or believers of witchcraft and vodoo.

some people believe God was fed up from all this evil and decided to give haiti and new start and teach the evil people a lesson.

know they are back at it again.

Yes it is crazy but I am reliably informed that the fundies have made a concerted push in Haiti and I believe that these lynchings are a direct result of this. As if the Hatians have not suffered enough.
