Voodoo priests and their religion(popular in Haiti) respect death and believe that Mass Burials and graves are wrong! Their belief and objections are so strong that the leading voodoo priest met with the Haitian President to object to mass earthquake burials.

There is also the fear among some of the Voodoo believers in Haiti, that “Zombies” may arise from the mass graves|burials in Haiti to persecute the dead.

Haiti’s voodoo priests say anonymous mass burials are an improper way to handle the tens of thousands of dead from the earthquake, and have taken their complaint to President Rene Preval.

Dumping the dead in hurriedly excavated mass graves without proper rites is seen as desecration in a country where many believe in zombies – dead bodies brought back to life by supernatural forces who could persecute the living.

Almost all the religions in the world, mainstream or not object to disrespect of the dead and improper burial.  Proper burial and respect for the dead is a core belief among most humans. Mass Graves and burials are seen as  desecration in  most every culture in the world.
