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 wish I could go to Haiti and help.
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...
i’m soooo not surprised but i guess it’s something they will have to deal with,no?
...and lots of ammo!
I hope our marines are locked and loaded . These mindless Cretans will try to harm them. “Zombies”, what childishness.
Head Voodoo Priest Protests Haitis Mass Burials, Fear of Zombies
If they think that’s bad, they should have seen who’s in the White House. That’s Scary!
Head Voodoo Priest ought be gently disabused of his fears.
Not bad for dead chicks! :-)
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.
Too late.............Clinton is already there. Be afraid; be very afraid.........
Once ya got zombies somebody has to fumigate and we’ll probably pay for zombie erradication.
I like White Zombie but I suspect it makes me racist to say so.
Ya .. well .... deal with it.
THAT is SO wrong.
LOL, I thought the real Zombies were the Obama voters.
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.
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.
Send Woody Harrelson down to Zombieland.
