The Un-Christian Damning Of Haiti

My remarks below derive from my having worked and lived in the Caribbean and several countries in Africa, particularly Angola and Mozambique.  Also my remarks are based on my being a Christian in the tradition of Jesus-Christ with respect for all and for the truth.

Voodoo stereotyping is racist, obsolete and based on untruthful statements and ideas. Thus to damn a country, the first democratic attempt in the whole of the Latin America sub-continent, and the first African American attempt to eliminate slavery, and successful at that and in itself another reason for its damning by some, is unacceptable, not charitable and un-Christian. Most of all is NOT TRUE.
