Religious Coalition Says No to Gay Marriage

Religious Coalition Against Gay Marriage

President Gérard of the Coalition of Religious and Moral Organizations (HCRMO) and its members gathered together in June to denounce the trend of allowing gay people to wed. Gay marriage has taken hold in the U.S., with 13 states permitting gay people to marry in religious ceremonies.

In a news conference, Gérard spoke of the sacredness of marriage between a male and female, whose sexual union is for the purpose of procreation. Moreover, he said the nuclear family (a male and female couple) is the nexus of all cultures, and not to be interfered with. According to HCRMO, gay marriages will violate God's plan, precipitating a breakdown of family values.

Haitian Wedding Tradition

A wedding Tradition in Haiti

It's a wedding day in Haiti. Be it the Haiti on Hispaniola or the one in the hearts across the Diaspora, a Haitian wedding tradition permeates through geographical and economic boundaries. The customs set out to usher a new couple into their married life are simple, poignant traditions that are quickly being adopted by people outside the Haitian sphere, while being simultaneously forgotten by those within it.

No one is formally invited to a Haitian wedding. This is perhaps one of the first differences between other wedding traditions. It is also one of the reasons why the customs are currently mostly practiced within the rural areas, where word of mouth gives an individual access to a wedding celebration.

Dictator Jean-Claude Duvalier, Son of Dictator Francois Duvalier

Picture of Young Jean Claude Duvalier

Jean-Claude Duvalier was growing up in an insular and wealthy family culture. When Francois Duvalier died in 1971, Jean-Claude inherited the presidency while still in his teens. At this time he was considered the youngest person on the globe to hold the office.

Jean-Claude Duvalier was not interested in the duties of office, delegating authority in most government matters to his mother, Simone. He made only superficial changes to his father's administration, preferring instead to be a figurehead rather than a hands-on ruler.

Jean-Claude Duvalier engaged in corruption practices, using family riches from a tobacco inheritance to steal revenues from government programs. Other illegal activities used to increase his wealth included selling human remains to medical institutions outside the country and drug trafficking.
