:computer: If "Voodoo," is just another Religion, why does everyone think of it as scary? Why is it even dismissed as even Superstition? In your view is Voodoo a religion, cult, filled with witchdoctors, sorcerers, and occultists? What type of practice then in your view is Voodoo? Yet first, is Voodoo even classified as a religion? If not, why?

Vodun means Spirit.
Vodun/Vodoo is one of if not the oldest Spiritual Practice. Practice as in Technology or Science.

why does everyone think of it as scary?
People tend to be afraid of things they do not understand.
In the Many Western society it was illegal to practice Vodun....for fear that it would lead to revolution as in Haiti

Why is it even dismissed as even Superstition?
So as to malign its practitioners.

In your view is Voodoo a religion, cult, filled with witchdoctors, sorcerers, and occultists?
Yes it is a religion in the original sense and meaning of the word.
The word Pharmacy and Medicine has ties and or roots in what we call Witchcraft...Medicine Man, Bush doctor etc.
Herbal or bush medicine has been in use for centuries targeting disease by strengthening the Immune system. Whilst Allopathic(modern) Medicine is a recent development, that targets symptoms of disease.

What type of practice then in your view is Voodoo?
It is a Spiritual Practice...a Way of Life.

Yet first, is Voodoo even classified as a religion?
Yes it is now classified as a religion.
Vodun is not a religion in the Western sense...as it is very much a medical practice as well.

If not, why?
Because its African and has real power as demonstrated by the Haitian Revolution.

Interesting... Is such a religion openly practice in the U.S.? Or is it socially lets say, frown upon!

It's origins were? Did the Roman catholics have any input with this religious practice? Just curious.
