More stereotypical religion bashing. Awesome.
This makes me sadder.
Santeria and Voodun do not equal rape or murder. Neither does Wicca, Witch Craft or Pagan religions. WTF is wrong with you people? Just cause a few nuts picked it up off of the tv or internet and killed and raped in the name of a __insert religion___ here, doesn't mean EVERYONE is like those few PSYCHOPATHS. Thank you.
God. Be nice. Please.

Unfortunately, this is typical of US media coverage of these religions. I get the impression that that when they interview priests and practitioners of these religions they ignore everything they say unless it fits their (or their editor's) preconceptions of what these religions are -- as when I have spoken with them, I've never got the impression and misinformation most of these stories contain. Sadly, more neo-Pagans than I would like buy into the these religions somehow being evil.
