Voodoo and Babylonian Origins of Black Madonna


Black MadonnaThe worship of the Mother Goddess was popular all over the world since ancient times and is popular today.

Mother Goddess was usually associated with fertility.

Different cultures worshiped her in different ways, attributing to her aspects similar to their own.

For example, black people would worship the black Mother Goddess, and Egyptian people would give to her their own religious attributes, and so did Hindus.

In Africa the Divine Mother is worshiped in many aspects. We find the same to be the case in India. Ancient Greece, Egypt and Babylon also had their own mother goddesses.

In Catholicism we find Mother Mary representing different aspects of the Mother Goddess. One deity manifesting as many is a very usual trait in Hindu pantheon. Of course, the idols representing Virgin Mary in actuality represent the Mother Goddess of pagans.

Goddess IshtarThe Mother Goddess of ancient Sumer was Inanna. Her Babylonian equivalent was Ishtar. She was the goddess of love, beauty, sexual desire, wisdom, war and fertility.

We find a similar representative of this goddess in Haiti voodoo religion too, who was called Ezili Dantor.

Haiti slaves who were forced to convert to Catholicism in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries continued to worship their voodoo gods under the disguise of the worship of catholic saints and Virgin Mary.

They found it easy to worship the black Madonna because they, I assume, recognized her to be their own deity – even the facial scratches attested to it.

Ezili DantorEzili Dantor, the black Madonna equivalent, was a fierce goddess who was a patron of homosexuals, single mothers, abused women and children.

She was the goddess of passion, sex and war.

People who are used to invoking her report that she needs few sacrifices to do one’s bidding and therefore she’s evoked by many.

She is described as being fond of knives. This particular deity belongs to the family of water spirits.

She has seven children, as some sources suggest. One of the children is told to be her husband which is similar to the Tammuz and Semiramis story.

She can be fierce, wild, aggressive, and difficult to control. She is independent and strong.

Here’s a popular song in her honor:

Seven stabs of the knife, seven stabs of the sword,

Hand me that basin, I am going to vomit blood,

The blood runs down…

Although she vomits blood, she continues on. This demonstrates that she would avenge her enemies despite the sustained injuries. When during voodoo rituals a person becomes possessed by this evil spirit, they might start vomiting blood.

Ezili Dantor myth tells that there was a long time rivalry between her and her sister Ezili Freda. Her sister represents lasciviousness, flirtation, dissatisfaction in love and pain. Her Catholic equivalent is the Weeping Mary (Our Lady of Sorrows) with a pierced heart. The reason she’s represented with a pierced heart is as follows.

These two sisters could not stand each other.

There was a strong jealousy between them. They both were in love with Ogou Lwa.

They fought over this man and during the battle Ezili Dantor took her dagger which she always carried with her and stabbed Freda in the heart.

That’s, I assume, where we get the Weeping Mary idol  from – the stabbed heart was the sign of Ezili Freda.

Freda, in turn, removed the dagger and cut Ezili Dantor’s face, thus scarring her. Thus you can see the scars on the Santa Barbara Africana image, which was painted from the inspiration of the Black Madonna of Częstochowa painting.

Black Madonna and Ezili Dantor Facial ScratchesI don’t know if the scratches on the Black Madonna painting indeed point to her voodoo origins since the official story is different, but this particular image of Madonna indeed looks like that of a fierce tribal warrioress.

This particular spirit, Ezili Dantor, was conjured up in a voodoo ritual carried out by Haiti slaves in 1791.

A black pig was sacrificed to evoke her and drunk by the ritual participants.

Some sources suggest that during this ritual voodoo priests also made a deal with the devil by writing the contract with pig’s blood in which they dedicated themselves and Haiti to him for 200 years in return for his protection.

When the spirit of Ezili Dantor was conjured up and possessed the voodoo high priestess Marinette, she ordered to kill the French oppressors. This caused the slave revolution.

Her own people cut out her tongue as they were afraid of her disclosing voodoo secrets if she was caught by the French. She was eventually burnt up alive. On January 1, 1804, the nation of Haiti was born.

This particular spirit likes black pig and black hen blood sacrifice, the offerings of wine, rum and some beers, daggers and strong unfiltered cigarettes.

Her days are Tuesday and Saturday. Her Catholic saint associations are: Our Lady of Czestochowa, Mater Salvatoris, Our Lady of Lourdes, Our Lady of Mount Carmel, our Lady of Prompt Succor and she is also associated with the Hindu divinity Parvati in her Kali or Chandi aspect.

This last association is also proved by the fact that the gypsy people see their goddess Parvati in Black Madonna paintings. They worship Parvati in a catholicized way under the pretext of worshiping a girl who helped early Christian missionaries (they say Mary herself too) when they were persecuted by Romans in France.

But they themselves know that it’s just a story to continue their Hindu religion abroad, since they themselves unofficially acknowledge to be worshiping their Mother Goddess Parvati as seen from their personal websites. Quoting:

St. Sarah, Kali Sara, Sara Kali, Sara-la-Kali, Sati-Sara, The Black Madonna, The Black Mother… many names for one Goddess-Saint sacred to Roma all over the world. She is the Goddess of Fate, good fortune, fertility, and protection– and Roma honor her in pilgrimage, by worshiping her statue, through dance and community… so many ways, so many incarnations of the goddess who accompanied the Roma all the way from India.

Kali Worship in FranceThey attend the pilgrimage to Les Saintes Maries in France and other related ceremonies elsewhere honoring black female divinities.

They even worship the black mother in the same way that they do back in India – they give offerings to her and during festivals they take her idol into the sea just like the Sati-Sara idol of India which is carried into the waters of the Ganges river.

The North Indians who migrated to Europe and now are called gypsies or Roma people worship their warrior goddess Parvati as they did when they were in their home country.

Parvati in some Hindu myths is told to have given birth to all the other female goddesses. Sometimes those other goddesses are told to represent Parvati’s aspects. For example, her fierce aspect is Kali and her demon-killing form is Durga. Gypsies consider her to be their protectress.

Gypsies simply took their Hindu religion and now worship the same idol they worshiped in their country under the disguise of Catholicism so that their religion is preserved.

The same has been done in Brazil and Cuba to preserve the worship of African ocean spirits such as Yemaya.

These ocean spirits have been blended with the catholic figure of Virgin Mary and are now represented by her “Our Lady of Regla” aspect.

So that is quite funny. Catholicism is all about the worship of pagan deities under the pretense of a Christian religion, and then the converted pagans continue worshiping the same demons under the pretense of Catholic religion not knowing that they don’t need to pretend because these are the very same demons that they worship in their religions. Some of them, I assume, recognize their own worshiped idols in the idols of Catholics, so the transition to another religion becomes almost non-existent.

The Virgin Mary of Catholicism, therefore, is not the mother of Jesus but the Queen of Heaven, the Mother Goddess that was worshiped by pagans for thousands of years. She is worshiped in many cultures in different ways, and therefore we have differences of her appearance. She’s also worshiped according to her different aspects, which are sometimes represented as different goddesses.

Therefore the worship of Mary embodies these variations of the Mother Goddess appearance also, and points to the fact that it’s not the human being Mary that is worshiped, but the Mother Demoness who can shape-shift and is the female aspect of the god of fertility who is called Moloch, Baal, Satan, Shiva, Saturn, Cronos and by many other names in different cultures. His phallus is worshiped by Hindus to this day.

So these two gods (together with their many aspects and manifestations) are the gods of fertility, sex and war.

That’s what we see people worshiping today when they watch violent movies with sexual content and when they pay money to attend satanic music concerts.

The same gods are worshiped to this day, though the way they are worshiped has been made more subtle, though children and animals are still sacrificed to these demons by some.

Dear readers, please don’t think that Virgin Mary that Catholics worship is the same Mary through whom our Savior has come into this world. It’s the Mother Goddess that’s worshiped and not Jesus’ mother (who shouldn’t be worshiped anyway since she was only a human being).

I advise you to stay away from any place that has the statue of Mother Mary as it’s a place dedicated to demons. Supernatural events can indeed take place in such locations like they are reported to do. But that’s not because those places are sacred, but because Satan, too, can transform himself into an angel of light and cause many great miracles.
