The Fight For Souls In Haiti

leave a comment »

In a scene reminiscent of times past, the different faith denominations in Haiti are fighting for congregants. Catholics, Protestants, and Vodouistes are mounting soapboxes and attempting to lure new followers. Tensions are rising as each group is blaming each other for causing the earthquake. Couple that with the fact that aid from missionaries is being doled out in most cases to membership of that particular denomination, and we see the potential for an explosive situation in the streets of Port Au Prince. Funny how help comes with a price.

I came across this vid by Lawrence Harrison the Director of the Cultural Change Institute who talks about Haitian history and events that may have led to Haiti’s vulnerable state pre-earthquake. He’s a controversial figure for sure, but some interesting points are raised. Your thoughts.
