    A week ago most people had never come across rapper Azealia Banks. She flew onto everyone’s radar on Saturday with just one tweet. It was as follows- And time to put death spells on cops who kill innocent civilians and think they can get away with it….. OKURRRRRR?!Immediately people began to respond on twitter with calls to the ancient magicks and the ancestors. People called Azealia a racist, and some Wiccans even chimed in with the three fold law. If there were any Pagans out there that thought they didn’t have “a nickel in this quarter,” they must admit they...

She’s a rapper/singer/whatever who’s less known for her music than for her feuds, or “beefs,” with more popular and/or talented artists. She picks fights with people like Iggy Azalea, Eminem, Lady Gaga, and then a bunch of other people you’ve never heard of because of #1 above.

    Voodoo dolls of Colombian star James Rodriguez, candles in Brazil colours and prayers to deities, Neymar and co are getting full support from the World Cup hosts' Afro-Brazilian religions. Before every game, Helio Sillman lights four yellow, green and blue candles in the colours of the national flag and places them in a rectangular box representing a football pitch. He places dolls inside and sends them "strength and energy," with the help of Orixas, the gods of Macumba and other religions that mix Roman Catholic and African beliefs.

    If you think you’ve seen all the crazy antics the pro-abortion side in Texas has to offer as it opposes a pro-life bill to ban late-term abortions, “you ain’t seen nothin’ yet!” They’ve found a new way to protest the bill by making voodoo dolls and sending the proceeds from the sale of the dolls to Planned Parenthood, the nation’s biggest abortion business. The Blaze has more on what’s going on in the Lone Star State as Perry signs the bill into law. Michelle Sinched, a noted corset maker, has found a new way to protest the bill: She’s making...

    There is little suspense left in our presidential horse race, even in most of the so-called swing states, says astrophysicist and statistician Wes Colley. The way he measures the poll data and his deceptively simple median method, which have correctly predicted the last two presidential elections, show President Obama has locked up Ohio and Virginia and cemented a small, but stable lead in Florida. Bottom line: Obama is well on his way to re-election. "I think the operative word is disaster if you're a Republican," said Colley on Monday. "I think the operative word is confidence if you're a Democrat."...

    On Jan. 12, for the second anniversary of the devastating earthquake, thousands of people flocked to the Shalom Church in Port au Prince, Haiti. The "church" is just a plywood stage under a patchwork of tattered tarps. The crowd was so large that it spilled down a muddy hill toward a tent camp for earthquake victims. Most of the singing, swaying congregation were so far away they couldn't even see the podium. The evangelical mission now claims to have more than 50,000 members and one of the most popular radio stations in Haiti. This church is a product of the...

    Following his blistering critique in last week’s debate in Iowa, former House speaker Newt Gingrich still thinks the newly established deficit “supercommittee” is one of the worst ideas ever conceived in Washington. In a speech at the Heritage Foundation today, the embattled presidential candidate put forward a host of ideas that he believes will yield far better results. “I’m going to say things that are very bold,” Gingrich warned the audience at the onset. “Boldness is sometimes exactly what we need.” Indeed, Gingrich went after what he described as Washington’s “intellectual” deficiencies, meaning the inability to embrace sweeping changes that...

    The article below is from the American Journal of Sociology vol. 43 (July 1937 – May 1938). pp. 894-907. It describes the early history of the Nation of Islam, including the direction by founder, Fard Muhammad, that members each sacrifice four whites. This article provides some original evidence regarding the foundation of the Black Nationalist movement on Gnostic occult principles, which has never changed. Black Nationalism, including all of its branches, remains today an occult movement based on a hatred of whites, hatred of America and a radical rejection of the concepts of traditional Christianity.

    The NBA doesn’t condone fans cursing at opposing players during games. But apparently, there’s nothing to prevent a fan from trying to place a curse on the opponents. Scores of Heat fans have been buying vodou- or santeria-type dolls at a store in West Miami-Dade that specializes in religious statues, powders, incense and small animals. (snip) “It is only for positive things,” he stressed — although, truth be told, if a purchaser thought they could use the dolls to bring misfortune to bear on the Mavs, Hernandez would be in no position to stop it.

    A wild candlelit sex ritual between a Brooklyn woman and her voodoo priest got so hot and heavy, they ended up torching their clothes and sheets -- sparking the nasty fire that killed a retired teacher and left 100 people homeless last week, sources said yesterday. The unidentified client was just looking for some good luck in her life when she forked over $300 to the horny holy man at his East 29th Street apartment in East Flatbush last Saturday, sources said. "She had problems in her life, and she wanted them taken care of," a law-enforcement source said. "He...

    A windswept, five-alarm fire that killed an elderly Brooklyn woman was started by candles placed on the floor near a bed while a man and woman were having sex after a voodoo ritual, sources said today. Fire marshals determined that the Feb. 20 blaze at 346 East 29th St. in Flatbush escalated to a fifth alarm because of an open door and delays, but that it was all started by black magic. "Time and time again we respond to tragedies that could have been so easily prevented," said FDNY Commissioner Sal Cassano. "This fire had so many of those elements...

    Democrats have lambasted Republicans for years for believing in "Voodoo economics." Well, the evidence is mounting that economic superstition is alive and well in the nation's political circles, though it has nothing to do with a fondness for tax cuts. It's instead the crazy belief that the government can spend its way to prosperity for the rest of us. Underscoring this conclusion, the Ways and Means Committee in the new GOP-majority House released a report titled "It's Official: On Unemployment and Jobs, Democrats' 2009 Stimulus Was a Huge Failure." The Ways and Means report provides a number of striking reminders...

Vincenzi’s lawyer backed out of the case involving the Sabal Park Inn after a falling out, so a rescission of deed, which could have transferred ownership back to the 43-year-old Vincenzi, never proceeded in court. Meanwhile, Vincenzi has hired a private investigator who is trying to build a case in the hopes that spiritual adviser Miriam Pacheco, her partner, Maria Teresa Torres,...

"People see rice being distributed in front of churches and those homeless now needing papers are being offered baptism certificates that can act as identity documents," Voodoo priest Max Beauvoir told The Associated Press before speaking at Friday's service. "The horrible thing though is that by rejecting Voodoo these people are rejecting their ancestors and history. Voodoo...

    Haiti has received billions of dollars in foreign aid over the last 50 years, and yet it remains the least developed country in the Western Hemisphere. Its indicators of progress are closer to Africa's than to those of Latin America. It has defied all development prescriptions. Why? Because Haiti's culture is powerfully influenced by its religion, voodoo. Voodoo is one of numerous spirit-based religions common to Africa. It is without ethical content. Its followers believe that their destinies are controlled by hundreds of capricious spirits who must be propitiated through voodoo ceremonies. It is a species of the sorcery religions...

    Here's the Pat Robertson paradox: Maybe the overwhelming condemnation of his comments about Haiti following the earthquake is evidence of how much religion continues to matter to many Americans. In case you missed it, Robertson said this on the 700 Club: "Something happened a long time ago in Haiti, and people might not want to talk about it. They were under the heel of the French. You know, Napoleon III and whatever. And they got together and swore a pact to the devil. They said, 'We will serve you if you will get us free from the French.' True story....

    Some Voodoo priests in Haiti, meanwhile, have expressed their dismay at the way in which bodies have been thrown into mass graves. “It is not in our culture to bury people in such a fashion,” said chief Voodoo priest Max Beauvoir at a meeting with President Rene Preval. “The conditions in which bodies are being buried is not respecting the dignity of these people.”

    PORT-AU-PRINCE (Reuters) - Haiti's voodoo priests are objecting to anonymous mass burials as an improper way to handle the tens of thousands of dead from the earthquake -- and have taken their complaint to President Rene Preval. Dumping the dead in hurriedly excavated mass graves without proper rites is seen as desecration in a country where many believe in zombies -- dead bodies brought back to life by supernatural forces who could persecute the living.

    Will an earthquake be necessary?  Lessons of Haiti for a Lula administration avid to promote Afro-Brazilian religions as “culture”  Julio Severo  Before the immense tragedy of the earthquake in Haiti, where dozens of thousands died, Gerge Samuel Antoine, the consul of Haiti in São Paulo, Brazil, was sincere enough — and also politically incorrect — to the tragedy to the religion of Haitians. The official religion of Haiti, a nation overwhelmingly formed by African slaves’ descendants, is voodoo.  Voodoo is a religion from Africa that, as Afro-Brazilian candomblé, mixed elements of the Catholic rulers’ religion. As in candomblé, rituals in...

    Aid workers have already baptised the earthquake in Haiti a “historical disaster”. It will rate high in the annals of the humanitarian aid world because of the number of victims and scale of the destruction. But the rescue operation is also becoming notorious for the slowness with which aid is reaching the victims. Five days after the quake hit, many places are still largely bereft of international aid. Not through lack of funds, supplies or emergency experts. Those are all pouring in from dozens of countries. But most of the aid — and aid workers — seems stuck at the...

    The earthquake in Haiti that has resulted in tens of thousands of deaths and inflicted untold misery on the inhabitants of that country has also brought to the fore five superstitions that have inflicted or will inflict even more misery on those poor people. 1) God’s revengeThe first superstition is reflected in the nonsense spewed from the mouth of Rev. Pat Robertson, host of The 700 Club TV show and long-time Christian nutcase. Robertson alleged that the earthquake was caused by God’s vengeance on the Haitians. They had apparently made a pact with the Devil several hundred years ago that...

    Why God Hates Haiti The frustrating theology of suffering. By Lisa Miller | NEWSWEEK Published Jan 15, 2010 From the magazine issue dated Jan 25, 2010 Haiti is surely a Job among nations. It is the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere: half its population lives on less than a dollar a day. With 98 percent of its forests felled and burned for firewood, Haiti is uniquely vulnerable to flooding from hurricanes. In 2008 four storms in as many weeks left a million homeless. Haiti has an infant-mortality rate worse than that of many African nations, and its people are...

    Here is video of a CNN Report showing some Haitians burying a friend using Voodoo Customs. The report also shows the reality that many of the dead are being dumped in large pits along with trash and earthquake rubble. These friends wanted to give their friend a more dignified burial. In the burial ceremony, the wrapped body was placed in the grave and a Catholic prayer was said. Each mourner then threw three handfuls of dirt into the grave to appease the Voodoo Spirit of the Dead. In Haiti, there is apparently a saying: "Hatians are 80% Catholic, 15% Protestant,...

    Government Of The Devil, By The Devil, And For The Devil By Tom Barrett (03/11/04) "Haiti is the only country in the entire world that has dedicated its government to Satan. Demonic spirits have been consulted for political decisions, and have shaped the country's history." Thus speaks Reverend Doug Anderson, who grew up in Haiti with missionary parents, and served there along with his wife Dawn as a missionary until 1990. The leaders of Haiti make no attempt to hide their allegiance to Satan. Haiti's government is a government of the devil, by the devil, and for the devil....
