That unctuous televangelist Pat Robertson is blaming the Haitian earthquake on their ancestors, who allegedly "swore a pact to the Devil" (h/t: People for the American Way). Robertson claimed that "something happened a long time ago in Haiti and people might not want to talk about it:"
They were under the heel of the French, uh 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'll get us free from the French. True Story. And so the Devil said "OK, it's a deal." And they kicked the French out. You know, the Haitians revolted and got themselves free. But ever since they have been cursed by one thing after the other...
That's almost as bad as his agreement with Jerry Falwell that we deserved 9/11 because of "the pagans, and the abortionists, and the feminists, and the gays and the lesbians [...] the ACLU, People for the American Way, all of them who have tried to secularize America."
Why are his loathsome remarks about voodoo tectonics still on the air?
People who would like to actually help the Haitian earthquake victims (rather than worthlessly praying for them) can donate $10 to the Red Cross by texting "HAITI" to 90999.
