Another horror of a place.

Hardly surprising .. copy-catting the bad has always been a favorite pastime of the mentally-defective ; with no inner resources , they must rely on strife and violence to get their kicks . It's not a question of what's objectionable but how vulnerable the victim is that matters to them .

“ WOOF ! ”

Haiti is a hell-hole. If you are lucky enough not to live there, then don't visit. It makes Cuba look like Disneyland.

Haitians do not any reason for doing violence to others. This has been a problem from the top on down.

It is a hellhole largely due to the United States and France, who originally drove it into poverty by barricading it for years after its independence. These were the same hypocrites who were blabbing on about rationalism and the rights of man at the time. The Haitians deserve credit, at least, because they were the one slave-dominated colony where the slaves had the guts to successfully overthrow their masters in a revolt.

As for their homophobia, it is a benighted place, so what would one expect. I wonder how much is influenced by Catholicism? From my understanding lots of Haitian are "bi-religious", following both Catholicism and Voudun at the same time.

Yup. You're absolutely right ! All problems and trouble s in the world are always directly caused by the United States. In fact, Canada today wouldn't be a mini-Soviet Union if it weren't for the United States. BAD Americans ! BAD, BAD BAD !

As if Haiti wasn't enough of a hell hole.

All the international aid is looted by their bureaucrats.
They have earthquakes, Hurricanes, drugs, disease, and mind numbing poverty.

On top of all that, they have been descended upon by gay rights activists, with re-reinforcements from Amnesty International.

It's enough to make one root for the Hurricane's - just put the poor country out of its misery.

I said both the US and France, and that was regarding actions taken not recently but 200 years ago.
