Vodun and diaspora practitioners, and others with gender balanced belief systems have been condemned for a long time for being too “dark”.

I build websites, make art, and assist people in exercising their spirituality. I'm also the king of an ile, Baalat Teva, a group of African spirituality adherents here.
