Yes there is a more recent catholic influence or cross-over; I was not aware of the rest though

it was widely reported that a section of Bwiti 
are catholics or other christian denom. I have read several
article online regarding this, some could 
have been from catholic web sites for the local bishops. Pope
John Paul II was reported to have given the 
approval for Catholic Bwiti to continue their practices.

I am not sure about the reasoning; in most cases the church lets things  like pagan holidays and some practices slide so they can keep a hold. Also  because a lot of people are pressured into Catholicism they would keep their  traditional beliefs quiet. Bwiti was outlawed and this is why they had to  perform their rituals far away near waterfalls to drown out the sound of the  drums etc. 

Where are you getting your information from or are you just  supposing? I am just interetsted; have you been initiated into Bwiti or  visited Gabon?

it was probably allowed because the local native  Catholic bishops
confirmed the iboga bwiti practices do not  constitute idol-worship or black magic, but are really unique cool  stuff,
thats why there are christian bwiti  now.

what is interesting is the Catholic church in  Gabon is cool with Bwiti usage of iboga for inititations etc.
- as part of the ongoing church policy of  allowing native cultural preservation. this could be extended to peyote,  imo.

There is a lot of mythology in mushrooms and the Catholic church was  quick to include pagan holidays by just giving them a different  name.
