Haiti earthquake: Voodoo high priest claims aid monopolised by Christians....
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/centralamericaandthecaribbean/haiti/7119572/Haiti-earthquake-voodoo-high-priest-claims-aid-monopolised-by-Christians.html ^ | Feb 2nd, 2010

Haiti's voodoo high priest has claimed believers have been discriminated against by evangelical Christians who are monopolising aid sent to the earthquake-stricken country....

Max Beauvoir, Haiti's "supreme master" of voodoo, alleged his faith's opponents had deliberately prevented much-needed help from reaching followers of the religion, which blends the traditional beliefs of West African slaves with Roman Catholicism.

"The evangelicals are in control and they take everything for themselves," he claimed. "They have the advantage that they control the airport where everything is stuck. They take everything they get to their own people and that's a shame

Christians have also been inundating radio stations asking anyone who has committed a crime to confess, thereby saving the nation from future disasters.

Inspiration, an evangelical station, said 11,000 people had rung up to pledge themselves to God since the earthquake.

Most of the Christian groups I am familiar with went down to help missionaries they had been supporting in that field for quite some time. They went for a specific purpose, to serve a specific population. I don’t find it strange, or discriminatory, more of their aid went to those who been calling on the name of Lord before the earthquake.

Move on. Nothing to see here!

Haha. No doubt aid is “monopolized” by Christians — as we are among the most generous people on this planet.

However, if Haiti would like to restrict aid-sources to only voodoo wackos, fine by me. Good luck with that recovery. Its hard to rebuild a country with $32.50 and a and a voodoo priestess pricking dolls with pins.

OK, how about this, the Evangelicals will stop contributing aid and aid workers, and we’ll leave the whole relief effort up to voodoo relief agencies. I’m sure they will get 50 bucks a month or so flowing in to aid the millions in need.

I find it difficult to believe that Christians are restricting aid to only Christians. I don’t believe a word of this story.

Maybe we should send some F-101 Voodoos over there to help them out.

Well, misguided as it is, I think this guys point is that the Christian generosity of the “evangelical” Christians is coming with pressure to repent and become evangelical Christians. Catholic Relief Services (the largest sole provider of aide in the world) does not place any pressure or conditions on helping the poor. I’m not saying they should or shouldn’t, but I think this is the difference.

voodoo is one of the reasons Haiti is in such bad shape.

This Voodoo guy is basically Al Gore. He has no desire to help but wants to explain that the earth is mad and everyone needs to listen to him to learn how to please the Earth. One should post a picture of Al Gore next to this guy.

Most don’t pressure and they don’t restrict help. But, they will ask if they would like to know Jesus. That’s what Jesus told us to do. You don’t force but, you do offer.

Are you under the power of evil spells?
Do you have voodoos and hoodoos ruining your love life?

Well, send $25.00 to Sista Jackson and we will pray for you.
For $25.00 we will send you a hoodoo and voodoo doll to break the power of these evil spells.
Then, every week take $5.00 and rub it on the doll, then send it Sista Jackson. As your $5.00 flows to sista Jackson the evil spells, voodoos and hoodoos will flow away from your life.

Be sure to send $5.00 a week. that is Sista Jackson, care of this radio station.

(Advertizement I heard on late night AM radio several years ago.)

Of course!

More reason for Obama & The Dems to push for eliminating the deduction for charitable contributions.

Those pesky Christians fail to acknowledge the supreme role of the all-powerful, all-knowing, all-benevolent Government to identify and meet the needs of the masses.

Help never comes with pressure to repent. However as Christians it would be hypocritical to meet a physical need and leave the spiritual need unaddressed.

True, I think that even bringing up the topic, though, makes unrepentant people very uncomfortable. Thus they go ballistic about being 'pressured.' But I suspect most of that pressure is coming from their own conscience, not anything external.

I have a pneumatic boot for my broken ankle that I plan to send to Haiti as soon as the doctors let me. I was going to slip a gospel tract into it. Does that count as 'pressure'? Some people just need to lighten up and value freedom of expression and association a bit more.

I am so sick of Haiti and the Haitians. And STOP BRINGING KIDS IN. America has 100,000 kids in foster homes awaiting adoption—most of them minorities. We don’t need Haitians coming in to increase those numbers. Let’s take care of our own first and find them homes, dammit!

The Christian based worldview is that leaders are to serve.

The worldly (all other) worldviews are that leaders are to be served.

Good idea about your boot. No that isn’t pressuring. Pressuring would be witholding supplies until they were converted. It isn’t however wrong to tell someone about the gospel and the reason for our charity. Our love for Him causes us to love others.

The Voodoo practicioners are choking chickens, spillng their blood and rattling their bones. In other words they are totally useless in helping the sick, injured and the needy.
