Being a mix of badly and vaguely taught Christianity, mixed with African mythology, Vodou is almost a monotheistic religion by the back door.
Thus Bondye is the Vodou monoGod equivalent of Jehovah. But the polytheistic side comes with the Loa, giving plenty of lesser deity spirits to worship. Bondye does actually seem quite aloof (no doubt because of his African origins) while the Loa flit in and out of everyday life.
