Max Beauvoir, Haiti's "supreme master" of voodoo, alleged his faith's opponents had deliberately prevented much-needed help from reaching followers of the religion, which blends the traditional beliefs of West African slaves with Roman Catholicism.
"The evangelicals are in control and they take everything for themselves," he claimed. "They have the advantage that they control the airport where everything is stuck. They take everything they get to their own people and that's a shame.
"Everyone is suffering the same and has the same needs. We are not asking for anything more than anyone else. We're just asking for it to be fair."
Mr Beauvoir, 75, a Sorbonne-educated biochemist, spoke as a first convoy of aid arrived at his home in Mariani, a town just outside Port-au-Prince. It contained 400 sacks of rice from the World Food Programme and was mobbed by hundreds of hungry voodoo believers.
Maybe that might explain why the Evangelicals "keep things for themselves".
"I don't know much about him and I don't think I'm losing much," said Mr Beauvoir. "Voodoo as been discriminated against for 200 years.
In a country where it's widespread. Think he might have a chip on his shoulder?
"It was developed by our ancestors, it is a way of life. To ask us to stop would be like asking an American to stop heating hamburgers."
People ARE TRYING to stop Americans to eat (so many) hamburgers.
Just because you've been doing something for the last several hundred years doesn't mean you can't stop.
