Voodoo You Trust?
John Paul II’s Betrayal in Benin
by John Kenneth Weiskittel
“You have a strong attachment to the traditions handed on by your ancestors.
It is legitimate to be grateful to your forbears who passed on this sense of the sacred,
belief in a single God who is good, a sense of celebration, esteem for the moral life and for harmony in society.”
—John Paul II (to voodoo representatives of Benin on 4 February 1993 at Cotonou)
