->I am ignorant as most people on the facts of such religions, including the ancient Cuban cult in ''The Believers'', which keeps its diabolical gods a secret by disguising them as Catholic saints. I would like to imagine that most Caribbean religions, like most religions everywhere, are a comfort to their believers, and hold up a prospect of a saner, more joyous life.\\
I would like to believe that, but the movies give me little reason to. Every voodoo movie ever made has depicted [[ReligionOfEvil bloodthirsty cults of savagely sadistic murderers]], vengefully thirsting for innocent blood. There has been a lot in the papers recently about "[[AcceptableEthnicTargets Arab-bashing]]", the practice of creating strong negative stereotypes of Arabs on TV and in the movies. I'm in agreement. But what about voodoo-bashing? Isn't it just as prejudicial?
