Dear Mr Bergoglio,
Back in the bad old days of Papa Doc and his successor as Haitian dictator, Baby Doc; I visited that troubled island to study Voodoo. According to reliable sources these megalomaniac torturers that kept the population in starvation conditions for decades appointed their friends as Cardinals, in fact the whole Catholic church hierarchy was appointed without reference to the Vatican at all! I bet they reported any dissent among the catholic laity straight to the Ton ton Macoute! (Secret Police)
My questions today are (1) can you confirm this? and (2) does this still go on today anywhere in the world?
