Religion
    Religion developed by African slaves in the New World circa the 16th century
    Usually associated with Haiti but was and is practiced in Louisiana and throughout the Caribbean
    Developed as an amalgamation of Catholicism and African religions and in Haiti the religion of the native Taino Indians
    Recognizes one god, Bonyade who does interfere in earthly matters, therefore lesser gods called loa or lwa are sought for help
    Ancestor worship and witchcraft are also practiced
    Exists in multiple forms; Haitian, Louisianian, Kongo, and Petro and others
    It's not real.
    It's origins are sad. It developed to give slaves some solace of hope in their otherwise grim lives.
    There are a lot of misconceptions about it; voodoo dolls are usually used to bless or help friends not hurt enemies and zombies have nothing to do with voodoo.
    The people of the Caribbean and to a lesser extent blacks of south Louisiana have been stereotyped as worshipers.
    Stupid tourists to New Orleans and Haiti are always looking for love charms for themselves and curses for their enemies.
    It developed syncrestically and is often worshiped in tandem with Christianity especially Catholicism but is strongly condemned by the Catholic Church and most protestant sects as well.
    Voodoo priests and priestesses inspired Haitian slaves to win their independence and freedom from France in 1804.
    It emphasizes what most people would consider common morality; don't harm others, etc.
    It separates the afore mentioned stupid tourists from their money.
    They don't have any televangelists.
    It's been the inspiration for some decent movies from White Zombie to Live and Let Die.
