Frequently Asked Questions
1. Isn’t Vodou a way to cast magic spells?
No, Vodou is an ancient religion and a tradition. There is a magical system associated with it, but Vodou itself is a religion.
2. Is Vodou evil?
No. Humans from all religions (as we all sadly witness on the daily news) can be evil, yet Vodou itself is not an evil religion or practice by any stretch of the imagination. Like many religions, traditions, cultures, and ethnic groups, the Vodou religion has been victimized by Hollywood-generated lies. The negative material you have seen and heard in movies and television about Vodou is utterly and completely false. We also think it is racist garbage. Fortunately, we in Vodou are not mentally and emotionally handicapped by prejudice of any sort: Vodou is, indeed, open to all – and that means all, including you, regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, physical condition, or any other factor that others use to discriminate.
