CBS has details
As Haitian Prime Minister Jean-Max Bellerive said “well over” 100,000 people may have died in the national disaster, Robertson took to the airwaves Wednesday on his show and said that the country has been “cursed by one thing after another” since they “swore a pact to the devil.”
“Something happened a long time ago in Haiti and people might not want to talk about,” Robertson said Tuesday.
“They were under the heel of the French, you know Napoleon the third and whatever. And they got together and swore a pact to the devil. They said ‘We will serve you if you will get us free from the prince.’ True story. And so the devil said, ‘Ok it’s a deal.’ And they kicked the French out. The Haitians revolted and got something themselves free. But ever since they have been cursed by one thing after another,” Robertson said.
Let me just say for the record, the following:
1) Pat Robertson does a great job at making Americans look like unfeeling morons.
2) Catholics do not believe in divine retribution.
3) Shut up, you jackass.
If our God is the type of God who randomly smites innocent people then I’m not sure I’d want much to do with God. However, our God is not that kind of an awful, vengeful, hate mongering, vile spewing, sadist! Our God is the suffering savior and perhaps Mr Robertson should go back and get in touch with Jesus.
In case you missed Him, Pat, he’s the one who is hanging on the cross…
And today, He has a Haitian face.
