Pat Robertson Spews More Nonsense

Pat Robertson Spews More Nonsense

From Think Progress:
Pat Robertson Cites Haiti’s Earthquake As What Happens When You ‘Swear A Pact To The Devil’
“Today on his 700 Club television show, Christian broadcaster Pat Robertson highlighted the tragedy and said that his network will be there “to help the people.” However, he then tried to offer an explanation for the earthquake, blaming Haiti’s own people for once making a “pact to the devil”:

ROBERTSON: [S]omething happened a long time ago in Haiti and people might not want to talk about it. They were under the heel of the French. Napoleon the Third and whatever. And they got together and swore a pact to the devil. They said, “We will serve you if you get us free from the prince.” True story. And so the devil said, “OK, it’s a deal.” They kicked the French out, the Haitians revolted and got themselves free.”

But ever since, they have been cursed by one thing after the other, desperately poor. That island of Hispaniola is one island. It’s cut down the middle, on the one side is Haiti, on the other side is the Dominican Republic. The Dominican Republic is prosperous, healthy, full of resorts, etc. Haiti is in desperate poverty. Same island.”

Wow, where to even start on this one? I love how he puts that his commentary is a “true story”. Oh, and how the Dominican Republic is prosperous because there are resorts there. Who knew that the entire country was just a chain of nice resorts? Pat Robertson that’s who. What an idiot. I’ll give him credit on one point-he knows the island is called Hispaniola at least.

And here I was thinking it was us Pagans, feminists and gays that were behind this. Remember, Robertson blamed those and more for 9/11.
