Voodoo practitioners for Obama







There's a shop in my town that looks like a Catholic statue store when you first walk in but has things like penis shaped candles for fertility and sex spells and a voodoo shrine in the back. When Rocky and I accidentally visited it one time, we both wandered down different aisles of the store and just as it was dawning on me that something wasn't right , Rocky rushed up to me an whispered, "There's some kind of a shrine in the back. I don't know what they're praying to but we need to get the hell out of here." Usain Bolt couldn't have left the store any faster than we did.

Today we usually don't even glance at it when we drive by but last weekend we were walking past it on the way to one of our favorite restarants and I noticed a large Obama sign in the window. We both had to laugh. Considering how weird Obama supporters tend to be, it made sense.

Yes, I agree, there is nothing more unsettling than a Santeria botanica. It is as if y7ou want to go inside and buy all of the Catholic statues just to release them from that nightmare.

Yes. It was really disturbing to see statues of Our Lady and Jesus in that horrible place.

Oh, it is sooo not surprising that they would be Obama supporters. It's all about doing whatever works for you.... isn't that the leftist motto?

Penis-shaped candle? Would one call that a dick with a wick?

I am reminded of a claim that Wiccan witches in New York were doing hexes against Hitler during WW-II.
