Voodoo is now an offically recognized religion in Haiti. Catholic leaders are not happy about this. And some believe this is an attempt by Pres. Aristide to garner more support for his third run at the presidency (he'll have to change the constitution).

Worth noting:

A recent international development conference on combating the spread of AIDS included delegates from the emerging voodoo community, which has a more open and tolerant view of homosexuality than does the Haitian public at large.
