Haiti Consul Blames Voodoo For Quake

From YouTube:

Haitian Consul General blames voodoo and "cursed" Africans for earthquake

Not realizing the camera was recording at the time, Gerge Samuel Antoine tells Brazilian reporter that Africans are cursed and "wherever there are Africans, it’s f**ked up." And claimed the tragedy was good for publicity for the consulate.

Will Mr. Antoine be drawn and quartered like Pat Robertson?

    Probably not. He is not saying it in the name of Christianty

    But Pat Robertson is probably right.

    Voodoo IS a sort of pact with the devil.

    That was another example of Christian leaders saying something that Christians pretty much understand but the non Christian Community can’t fathom.

    They have to stop doing that as it always comes back to smack them and the Christians in the face. It’s like talking about your family issues in public. Your family gets it…but the neighbors might not.

    But as I said…he’ll get a pass.

    I explained Pat Robertson’s comments to my girlfriend today. We had a great discussion about why I thought such major disasters happen and kill seemingly innocent children and perhaps guilty adults so indiscriminately. It was one of those converstations of course you just can’t have with anyone.

    What does it mean that Voodou is a pact with the devil?

    Well in Haitian Voodou and other Pagan practices, cosmic forces (like earthquakes, death, etc) that aren’t understood become respected and worshipped Loas (lesser gods, spiritual beings). They’re worshipped because they’re feared; they’re feared because they’re not understood.

    Thus when the Voodou belief system (and its parallels) meet the real world, the believer ends up spending his life fearing a series of greater and inevitable destructive forces rather than seeing the beauty and endless possibilities of the gift of life. The long-term impact this has on a culture and their government should be pretty clear: the goal of society becomes to band together in the spirit of practing eccentric rituals and sharing eachothers burdens rather than advancement, progress, or individual responsibility. And what happens when an earthquake randomly hits these places? Hundreds of thousands die that might not have if the road had been different.

    The Left tells us that it’s wrong to criticize the beliefs of others because it’s intollerant. While we’d never order someone to worship what we want, people on the Right have a saying:

    “Watch your thoughts, for they become words. Watch your words, for they become actions. Watch your actions, for they become habits. Watch your habits, for they become character.”

    And character is everything.

      I find the movie Avatar to be a very interesting parallel to Haiti right now, in Opposite World.

      Consider the movie: the Gaia worshipping paganists are trying to keep the evil materialist capitalists from destroying their land.

      Consider the reality: Gaia crushed the land and now the people are begging for the capitalists to bring them material.

    I still think that doesn’t rival what Danny Glover (sorry, Dr. Glover. I keep forgetting that being a actor is the equivalent of having a Doctorate in every single subject known to man) said.

    And this kinda mixes with what Ol’ Patty said, as was already mentioned…although instead of just Haitians mixing with the devil, it’s all black people who cause nothing but messes.

    So which do you guys feels is worse: Earthquakes caused by global warming or it’s all black people’s fault?

    And those who practice voodoo, who do they worship? Is it God or is it something else? Is it the creation or the Creator? The fact is that there were those practicing voodoo a couple hundred years ago and sacrificing to whatever for a successful revolt against the oppressor. The revolt was successful and Haiti has been in the crapper ever since. Let’s just pray that those in this country who are practicing the religion of whatever deity they worship (I don’t think it’s God) are not successful in their revolt.

    Bad things happen to good people. Good things happen to bad people.
    The bible says God will save people from every nation.

    Katrina as Haiti brought out evil and good. You can google the U.S. and find the cracks. California is suppose to break from America someday.

    I would hate for America to be judged by the actions of those in Washington D.C. who are playing God.
