Santeria-A Growing Problem for the Catholic Church
By George Hood, News Director, El Bohemio News

San Francisco (EBN) There is little question that SanterĂ­a is growing in influence in the United States and in much of Caribbean Latin America. In Cuba and Venezuela, it has become a major problem for the Catholic Church.

If the belief were to stand alone, it would likely simply be considered another cult oriented religious practice, much like an ugly form of shamanism. The problem is that most of its adherents consider themselves to be Roman Catholics and insist on incorporating their heretical practices into Catholic liturgy.

SanterĂ­a undermines orthodoxy and attacks the very heart of Christian belief by insinuating a pantheon of sub-gods into Catholicism.
