You all are very welcome for the link! Glad you enjoyed it ;)
What Lady Snow said is right - there is a ton of misinformation surrounding hoodoo. People confuse it with Voodoo all the time (remember Voodoo/Voudon is a religion not a magical practice). Hoodoo is a type of American folk magic developed by enslaved Africans, combining Protestant Christianity, African magical techniques, American Indian magical techniques, Jewish Kabbalah and other magics, and some Central American curanderismo/Catholicism in southern pockets of the United States. Up until the past ten years or so, due largely to the influence of catherine yronwode (www.LuckyMojo.com), almost all hoodoo practitioners were southern Protestant Black Americans.
An important side note is that all traditional rootworkers or conjure doctors consider themselves Christian (predominantly Baptists). They see no conflict between their Christian beliefs and their magical practice, unlike many other adherents to the religion.
Recently there has been an upsurge in Neo-pagan interest in hoodoo, but the adaptation of hoodoo into a more Pagan framework is *not* traditional hoodoo - it is eclectic hoodoo, if such a term exists. If you're not doing work in the name of the Lord, i.e. the Christian God, or praying the Psalms, then you're not doing down-home, authentic, ol' timey hoodoo... not that eclecticism is bad or anything and not that you can't do hoodoo-type spellwork and pray to Isis, just sayin'...
