Head Voodoo Priest Protests Haitiís Mass Burials, Fear of Zombies

Posted on 01/18/2010 7:04:04 PM PST by rbosque

(ChattahBox)—The head Voodoo priest of Haiti is sickened by the desecration of dead bodies, as they are unceremoniously collected off of the city streets and hurled into mass graves. In a nation where many people practice Voodoo, the supernatural prospect of Zombies rising from the mass graves to prey on the living, is a real fear. Since a powerful earthquake flattened the poor Caribbean nation of Haiti into mounds of rubble on Tuesday, the shocked survivors have roamed the streets littered with rotting corpses and the overwhelming stench of death. In a nation without an infrastructure during the best of times, the earthquake has not only destroyed most of the buildings in the capital city, and killed tens of thousands of people; it also wiped out what little government existed. Haitian President Rene Preval is homeless and has taken up residence at the police station.

I hate to sound flippant, but “U.S. Marines trapped on an island of vengeful zombies” could be the setup for a really great movie...

The only really cool thing I can think of about Haiti is Zombies.

Zombies rock, and if we focus on the Zombie angle it just might get me interested enough to donate a few bucks to the relief effort.

Over half the population of Haiti practices Voodoo.

People are NOT claiming the bodies so they liter the streets. This is unsanitary and a health problem. There really isn’t much choice but to do this. You can’t have people slipping with or near dead bodies. Allo of the children are staying with their dead parents. They don’t understand what has happened they’re little.

Religious Haitians Say Earthquake Was God Asking for Change
Sunday, January 17, 2010

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti — Deeply religious Haitians see the hand of God in the destruction of Biblical proportions visited on their benighted country. The quake, religious leaders said Sunday, is evidence that He wants change.

Exactly what change He wants depends on the faith: Some Christians say it’s a sign that Haitians must deepen their faith, while some Voodoo followers see God’s judgment on corruption among the country’s mostly light-skinned elite.

...

http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,583236,00.html

This country is ripe for genuine Christians to soothe their soul and give the true hope for now and eternity.

What is not a good move is moving Haitians over here - especially orhpans. Orphans need to be with their people from their own country. This would be a horrible culture clash. They need to rebuild orhphangaes over there headed by genuine Christians. I can’t imagine uprooting children from what they know and are famliar with and bringing them here.

I understand Turner Movie Classics has scheduled "The Night of the Living Dead" for Tuesday night in Massachusetts.

The movie stars Barack Ozombie in the lead role.

WHICH WITCH DOCTOR?
The Vogues, 1958

When I went to see my girl, I knew just what to do.
Because I’d seen the witch doctor way down in Timbuktu.
But before I could use his voodoo, she broke my heart in two.

She said to me, “Which witch doctor did you see?
Which witch doc did you see?
It couldn’t be the one that I saw,
‘Cause this is what he said to me,
He said: “Oh, ring, ding, ringalingadingydang,
Ringalingadingydang dew,
Ring, ding, ringalingadingydang keeps him from loving you.”

I put my arms around her, never thought she would resist.
But when I tried to kiss her, she just wouldn’t be kissed.
First she bit me, and then she hit me right in my eye with her fist.

She said to me, “Which witch doctor did you see?
Which witch doc did you see?
He couldn’t be the one that I saw,
‘Cause this is what he said to me,
He said: “Oh, ring, ding, ringalingadingydang,
Ringalingadingydang dew,
Ring, ding, ringalingadingydang keeps him from loving you.”

I went back to Timbuktu; I knew just what to do.
I punched that old witch doctor right in his big voodoo.
When I got him, I sure did swat him, and then when I was all through,

He said to me,”which witch doctor did you see? I’m sure it wasn’t me.
I couldn’t be the one that you saw, ‘cause I give a guarantee
With my yep, yep, diddlewiddledeedah, diddlewiddledeedah dew,
Yep, yep, diddlewiddledeedah, I’ll find a girl for you.
With my yep, yep, diddlewiddledeedah, diddlewiddledeedah dew,
Yep, yep, diddlewiddledeedah, I’ll find a girl for you.”
