Haiti was hit with a 7.0 magnitude earthquake. Estimates of the missing and dead are exceeding 100,000 in a country of 3 million people. Relief agencies are struggling to help those in need with many of their own also directly impacted by this disaster.
Along comes Pat Robertson and says:
“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. 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.”
Pat Robertson has a long history of blaming disasters on various groups. He blamed 9/11 on the ACLU. He said Katrina was sent by God to punish people for their sins.
Robertson is an embarrassment to all compassionate human beings.
