Two women, Peggy LaBossiere and her sister Rachel Hilaire are facing multiple charges for carrying out an attempted Haitian Exorcism on a 5 yr. old girl and her 8 yr. old brother. According to the report, the mother, who is not named, requested the women to perform the Voodoo because of the children’s bad behavior!
Just an aside note. This is what comes out of Shithole Countries!
Excerpted from Enterprise News – A five-year-old little girl has been burned and permanently disfigured after she was subjected to a Voodoo ritual. Fire blown over her face and cuts to her body were intended to banish the demon that her mother believed made her misbehave.
The mother stated that her children have been behaving badly due to evil spirits and that they perform prayers, and use certain water and oils to make the demon leave,” The Enterprise reported after looking at a report provided by East Bridgewater Police Detective John Grillo.
The Massachusetts publication reported that the mother is of Haitian descent and “believes in the religion of Voodoo, which originated in Haiti in the 18th century and is centered around the worship of spirits.” The child’s mother asked two women to perform the “ritual,” police officials said.
The sisters who tied up the little girl and subjected her to this treatment, also allegedly threatened to cut off her 8-year-old brother’s head with a machete. A police report said that one of them held a long stick to his throat making it hard for him to breathe.
“The victim stated that Peggy [LaBossiere] would lean over her and kiss all around her face like a snake and used a pointy object like a needle to cut her on her arm and collar area,” stated the report. “[LaBossiere] cut her enough so that she bled.”
Her little brother witnessed this abuse and told law enforcement officials that LaBossiere used a stick of fire and blew fire on his sister’s face. He said Hilaire held the little girl down, tied her hands to a stick above her head, and tied her feet together to form a cross.
LaBossiere threatened to cut off the boy’s head using a machete, as stated in the report. At one point, LaBossiere held a long stick to his throat, making it hard for the boy to breathe, police said.
″(LaBossiere) further stated they have performed this for friends and family members in the past and that children are susceptible to the burning when an evil spirits leave the body,” as stated in the report. Source: Enterprise News

Devin Vanderpool – “Haiti is 30 percent Christian, but 100 percent vodou (Haitian voodoo).”
This is a statement I’ve heard several times through my years of working in Haiti. I’ve come to realize just how close to true this actually is. Because Christians in Haiti might not practice vodou, but they are certainly wary of the negative effects it can have on their communities. An example that comes to mind is a memory of my husband disposing of a snake as three (Christian) Haitian women screamed that he had killed a demon.
The negative effects of vodou are particularly visible as we near the Haitian celebration for Mardi Gras, called Kanaval. In Haiti, Kanaval goes for weeks preceding Lent. And while many Haitian Catholics and Protestants do use this time to prepare for the Lenten season, vodou practicers openly worship spirits during the Carnival parade, known as defile. They use it as a time to assert the dominance of vodou priests and priestesses, known as houngans and mambos, on the communities. Many vodou worshippers dress up as the spirits they are worshipping. Some dress as zombies, devils or the dead. The most dedicated vodou worshippers use this time to thank the spirits that they believe helped them gain their independence from France in 1803.
In this atmosphere one might see fights break out, curses cast, even lives lost. In 2015, Kanaval was cancelled after a performer in a parade was shocked by a high-voltage wire, leading to a stampede. Eighteen were killed and 78 more injured in the resulting chaos.
While Carnival or Mardi Gras events in other parts of the world seem like nothing but big, if hedonistic, parties, the darkness evident during Haiti’s celebration of Kanaval is so contrary to the light God gave the world through Jesus. Jesus brought life, not death and destruction. Going into this season of remembering his sacrifice should not be a time to fear, but a time to rejoice and celebrate Jesus’ resurrection. And yet Christians across Haiti live in fear of what could happen to them or their families during this turbulent time of the year.
The non-profit I work for in Haiti is called LiveBeyond. We are based in Thomazeau, the self-proclaimed “vodou capital of Haiti.” There are vodou training centers and vodou temples called peristil yo in many of the villages around us. But we know that while Satan came to steal, kill, and destroy, Jesus came to give abundant life (John 10:10). We evangelize in our community daily, preaching about the healing of Jesus and the joy that he brings. We celebrated over 100 baptisms last year, as well as countless weddings and baby dedications. We offer discipleship training to new believers and build up strong spiritual leaders in our area through teleconferencing. Each week we facilitate a call between Haitian pastors and ministers from the United States so that they can share counsel and pray together.
I ask you to join us and the other Christian non-profits across Haiti like But God Ministries and Hope for Haiti’s Children in praying for our Christian brothers and sisters who will face persecution during this turbulent season. With your support we can continue to assist our brothers and sisters in confronting the oppression and darkness of Haitian vodou with the consuming power of the kingdom of light.
