:computer: If "Voodoo," is just another Religion,
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 been a good while, but this place has always been home. Thankful to be here.
Hi! I'm not as active on this account as I want to be. For one I tend to forget that this site exists until I check my email. Two, I'm currently in the process of building up a fine art site for Oklahoma black and native historical references. The references correlate with another site that will be a storytelling site that has not yet been produced.
Happy to be back and gaining more knowledge!
