i have seen many folks in my place consulting voodoo priest and they strong believe that a voodo priest got the power to bring luck in their life. in africa many people are caught up in a miserable life and they believe the cause of this problem is witchcraft, caston them by envious people and in order to cast out this problem they have to consult a witchdoctor. Most of these witchdoctors ask their patiance to slaughter a goat for their dead ancestors to evoke them. the most popular places where rituals are conducted is in the rivers, swamps, dams, seas and mountain. These witchdoctors gives their patiants charm, talisman to carry around. Ricky Martin once told a UK magazine'that when he was like 9/10/ somewhere there his father took him to a babaloo, a vodoo priest out there in Pueto Rico and the babaloo told him that he will be a famous singer, in which he is today. In Africa, many people are still caught up in this myth of witchcraft. But some few folks who live in urban areas don't believe much in this. whilst many people from the rural areas bath with chicken blood, some even kills innocent children for the rituals.

"whilst many people from the rural areas bath with chicken blood, some even kills innocent children for the rituals" LMFAO omg that is one of the OLDEST and MOST INACCURATE myths about vodou going.....CHILDREN ARE NOT SACRIFICED...Animals SOMETIMES are BUT its done humanely AND provided the animal hasnt been used to draw out illness etc it is eaten by the ppl involved in the ritual..if however its been used to draw out illness/negativity etc it is disposed of accordingly... Please please please get educated on the topic....There is NOTHING evil about fact its a beautiful religion and one of healing and peace...There is NOTHING evil about it at all... To answer your question..Do I believe in Vodou? fact I'm a practiitoner ;-)

Yes, I believe in Voodo. However, I haven't read much to really understand what voodo is all about. Sometimes people overreacts and say things without even knowing what voodo or witchcraft is all about. I used to believe that Satanist kill animals and drank blood but that was just a myth until I did a research on their beliefs and found out the truth about them.
