Wow. What this guy doesn't know about real Vodou.
Wonder how many times he watched 'The Believers', the 'Chucky' movies and "Serpent & the Rainbow' before he considered himself a priest.

Interesting fella, he does remind me a bit of Lt. Col. Michael Aquino who was one of the original members of the church of Satan until he split with Anton Lavey and formed the Temple of Set.  Though Lt. Col. Michael Aquino has actual credentials in the left hand path (not just a video watcher).  So it doesn't surprise me much to see someone in the military who doesn't have traditional christian beliefs.  Well I guess I kinda drifted left field of the subject.  I personally don't know much about Vodoun so I don't know how valid this guys claims are as to being a high ranking priest but it's possible.

A newcomer asked to be shown the way to the monastery, and Chao-chou replied:  "Have you finished eating your rice?... Then go wash your bowl!"  Therupon the monk gained instant enlightenment.
