I am not a vodouisant but I respect those who practice vodouism.

They send their prayers to God. At least they don't go out and blow up buildings and people.

I am catholic and don't participate in any aspect of the vodou ceremonies.

But if it's what Azor beleived in and where he belongs, so this is what they have to do.
