Two separate crimes against children in recent days have one haunting similarity: authorities have pointed to Voodoo rituals as a possible motive.
But practitioners of Haitian Vodou, which adherents spell differently to distinguish it from other variants, say the religion does not sanction violence and fear the crimes will spark a backlash against their community.
"We are being targeted," said Maude Evans, a Haitian native and Vodou priestess in Boston's Mattapan neighborhood. "I'm really concerned that that's how it's going to be from now on. They will do things and blame it on Vodou."
Two sisters in East Bridgewater were arrested last month after they tied down and burned a 5-year-old girl, permanently disfiguring her, in a "voodoo ritual" meant to rid her of a demon, authorities say. Peggy LaBossiere, who was arrested with her sister Rachel Hilaire, also is accused of threatening to cut off the head of the girl's 8-year-old brother with a machete.

THANK YOU KEN....
and that only took three comments before someone saw it too!!
The children are lucky to be alive and not “chicken” souped.
It’s still very alive in West and central Africa!
Why can’t they fight back using voodoo dolls and pins?
“When you do that Voodoo that you do so well.”
Didn’t 007 defeat voodoo by deflowering the voodoo psychic priestess?
Oh for cripes’ sake ... grow up and quit this idiotic religious posturing. You know voodoo is hoodoo, so why pretend that it’s a legitimate “religion?” It’s like Wicca or Gaia worship or Liberalism ... a childish reaction to the status quo ... a narcissistic attempt to be “different.”
And yell “look at me!”.. “look at me!”
