Yes, NO has a large hatian population, and yes, it probably has (had) the highest consentration of people who cleave to the Voodoo faith...
But again, after watching that video clip, I fear people (especially christians) are unreasonablly deamonizing voodoo. It's just a religion like any
other (execpt that it's more open and tolerant to other faiths than most).
NO does have a powerful history and long before these storms it was consittered to be one of the most haunted places in North America. There's been
some real atrosities comitted there, mostly against slaves. It's been the home of some real nit-wits trying to mess with things they shouldn't be
messing with... atracted by the voodoo culture and seeking to become "powerful" without really understanding the faith.
All that aside, what I really found disturbing in that clip was that glass eyed unit preacher talking about "where the army goes, god goes". That
just pissed me off!
