This question is only for the pagan/wiccan cafemoms....

Is Louisiana Voodoo [New Orleans Voodoo] evil? This religion is a mixture of catholicism and voodoo. I know somebody that practices it so I'm just curious to find out more about the Louisiana Voodoo [New Orleans Voodoo] religion. Here is a link that talks about the religion more.

  • As a whole? No. Are there those who practice Voodoo and use it for negative things? I'm sure. But as with any other belief system (baring outright cults), it's the people involved, not the path that is the issue.

  • I am not familiar with that really but I don't think it is all evil. I think I would have to agree with Sabrina's answers

  • Im not too familiar with voodoo/hoodoo stuff.

    However, nothing is evil(IMHO)unless the doer intends it for evil purposes.

    Any religion or spiritual belief can be used for evil if thats what the person wants from it.

  • nothing is evil(IMHO)unless the doer intends it for evil purposes. <<--- that's basically what I was going to say as well. It's all about intent!!

  • Magick is not good or evil ... it just IS. The "evil" is in the intent (motive) of the person doing the magick.

  • SpiritedWitch is right : THE TRUE MAGIC IS NEUTRAL. NEITHER GOOD NOR EVIL, NEITHER BLACK NOR WHITE. THE GOOD OR BAD IS IN THE HEART OF THE WITCH.

    Voodoo has been seen in books and movie as being a practice of evil spells, but movies are not real life;---are they ? !
