#2514: Answer to Ange Perrault (fwd)


<< Claiming and acting responsibly as a pitit Ginen today is still like 
living as an outcast and being the target of protestant missionaries and 
still, in some places, of the Catholic church.>>

Not to mention the fact that one's employment is then in jeopardy!  This is 
just as true in the USA as it is in Haiti.
<< I do not blame those who have chosen another path. We have to feel for 
 who lack convictions and courage. They are the victims of centuries of 
 intolerance, brainwashing, and others refusal to recognize their dignity and 
 their basic rights. They act in self-defense.>>

This is very true, and it is helpful to keep reminding ourselves, when 
confronted with rude, arrogant, even physically aggressive "levanjil".
<< It might be why, in Vodoun, we have chosen to keep an oral tradition.  >>

Well... I wouldn't say chosen.  If more Vodouisants knew how to read and 
write, things might be different.

Peace and love,
