White people seem to be pretty goddamn scared of black people in other countries, especially those with strange ancient rituals. They assume voodoo and other religious practices are simply the work of demons. It’s quite alien to them that their own religious rituals might seem pretty gruesome and savage to others; communion, for instance, is supposed to be the literal consumption of the body and flesh of their God. Is cannibalism acceptable in this one instance?
So here we have a movie with white people trying to convert other cultures to their monotheistic/triune deity, all in the name of “love” (hey, were the Crusades also about love?). Well, if your hearts are filled with so much affection, how about fucking off and letting people live their own lives in peace? If your God is so powerful, why does he always need some pasty face representative to spread his word?
