First Video of Louis Farrakhan in Haiti, the Secret Land of Voodoo

As he repeated once again in his press conference at Toussaint L'Ouverture Airport, Minister Louis Farrakhan said he is in Haiti to learn about Voodoo and to have conversation with other religious leaders.

Farrakhan told the crowd that he already know about Christianity and Muslim religion, but he doesn't know Voodoo. The Reverent also stated that there is no way that Haiti can comeback to it original position if we disrespect Voodoo and those who gave Haiti liberty.

"Voodoo is what I came to learn about"

I don't think Pat Robertson would like that!

NGOs and Religious Organizations selling Haitian Misery- Only in Haiti

In following-up with the series on NGOs and Religious Organizations selling Haitian Misery, the question that comes to mind is: What good does that serves to humiliate the Haitian people?

There is a Haitian proverb that says: "Si Ou pa ka bam, Pa Kraze Kwy moin", If you can't give me, do not break my dish.

What I realized is that only in Haiti this kind of things can be done.

I have been living in the United States for a long, long time and I dare you to film or take pictures of people in their most intimate or private moment as easily as those International organization do to Haitians in Haiti.

NGOs and Religious Organizations selling Haitian Misery - The Humiliation

I am sick and tired of NGOs and Religious Organizations selling Haitian misery to raise money.

Doesn't that just get to you, watching our Haitian brothers and sisters getting stripped from their dignity by these foreign Non-Profit Organizations or religious organizations for a bag of rice or some second hand clothes or shoes?

Let make it clear that many of these organizations are providing tremendous services to the Haitian population. Some of them are providing services that the population desperately needs such as help in the medical field, agriculture, energy, business development, education, home, and technology and we are very thankful for that.

Is judgement Day here yet? Can someone tell me what time it will happen? I want to be at a party celebrating when it comes. By the way, can I comeback as Zombie?

Are Religious leaders taking advantage of Haiti earthquake?

It is sad to say, however it is true, Religious leaders are taking advantage of Haitian. Following Haiti earthquake, some religious leaders have sought to take advantage of the quake to preach a theology of doom, turning the radio airwaves into pulpits to espouse fear and recruit believers. The quake, they preach, is punishment for Haitians' sin and belief in Vodou.

The tensions have only mounted as Evangelical and other religious groups from the United States fly en masse to a ravaged Haiti to feed and preach the Gospel.

In the three months after the earthquake, the relationship among faiths has evolved from one of rare unity to a fight for the Haitian soul. All hope to increase followers even as they assign blame for the quake.

To Pat Robertson, What causes the Earthquake in Chile?

A massive 8.8 earthquake struck Chile in the early morning hours on Saturday. Close to 100 times more powerful than the Haitian earthquake.

On January 12, 2010 at 16:53 a magnitude 7.0 earthquake occurred in Haiti. Televangelist Pat Robertson said immediately after the Haiti earthquake that earthquake-ravaged Haiti has been "cursed" by a "pact to the devil."

"Something happened a long time ago in Haiti, and people might not want to talk about it," he said on Christian Broadcasting Network's "The 700 Club." "They were under the heel of the French. You know, Napoleon III, or whatever. And they got together and swore a pact to the devil. They said, we will serve you if you'll get us free from the French. True story. And so, the devil said, okay it's a deal."
