    "A tragic case of a Guedé mount happened near Pont Beudet. A woman known to be a Lesbian was 'mounted' one afternoon.

    "The Spirit announced through her mouth:

    "'Tell my horse I have told this woman repeatedly to stop making love to women. . . I object to it. Tell my horse that this woman promised me twice that she would never do such a thing again, but each time she has broken her word to me as soon as she could find a woman suitable for her purpose. But she has made love to women for the last time. She has lied to Guedé for the last time. Tell my horse to tell that woman I am going to kill her today. She will not lie again. '

    "The woman pranced and galloped like a horse to a great mango tree, climbed it far among the top limbs and dived off and broke her neck."
    Zora Neale Hurston, Tell My Horse: Voodoo and Life in Haiti and Jamaica

    I know Yoruba is different and what little I know about Shango is that he stands for justice, righteous judgement, an end to BS, and masculine dignity.

    I know of a brother for many years who has claimed to be an Oba of Shango,
    and I don't wish him any harm but I hope,
    he channels Shango one day to reverese his male menopause, and get him out of his world of nuttiness and conmanship, as though
    he can con his way through family and life, and turn him into a responsible and respectable representative of Shango
