My husband brought home a voodoo doll from Mardi Gras in New Orleans that he bought from a street vendor about twelve years ago. He considers it a cultural artifact and keeps it in his pencil jar. He used to keep it at work, but now he is working at home. It is bad enough having one at all, but I really don’t like having a voodoo doll in our home.
He is a cradle Catholic and I am a convert. We often disagree on matters like this. For example, he told me to take down a beautifully-framed print of the Sacred and Immaculate Hearts because he thinks it looks too much like a shrine and he worries what people visiting our house might think – yet having a voodoo doll is acceptable to him. What should I do about this?
