Pat Robertson says Haiti quake "deal with devil"


700 Club: Faustian Deal Reason for Haiti Disaster

Former United States Presidential candidate and Conservative right wing televangelist, Pat Robertson, is clearly going further off his religious rocker. It could possibly be that neuron-devouring plaque is now invading the far-right side of his brain. Whatever it is, it is more than disturbing.

Today on his cable TV Christian Broadcasting Network, the loopy Robertson, chatting with his co-sidekick told viewers,

"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 get us free from the Prince, true story."

True story folks! More outrageous details on the pact with the devil bedtime story in the incredible video above. What is even more frightening than Rev. Robertson is that a substantial national audience never misses his story time, and seems to love his deluded, outrageous claims.

He has also been reverently supported by the hard-core remnants of the Republican Party leadership who seemingly have no problem with his twisted delusional language.

Thousands, perhaps hundreds of thousands are reported to have been killed in the violent, damaging quake. Untold thousands with untreated broken limbs and other grave injuries are without help with existing emergency resources depleted. Reports from those there say the disaster is indescribable. The dead, just 24 hours after the quake, are stacked in the streets.

Robertson's devoted, responsive audience could have been immediately urged to invoke their Christianity and donate generously, not to the 700 Club, but directly to international aid agencies to speed direct help to the devastated Haitians. Instead he told his viewers that the 7.0 magnitude earthquake was a Faustian payoff for the poor souls in Haiti whom, he clearly suggests, had it coming for Haiti's "deal with the devil."

Sweet Jesus . . . .

Is it to much to ask for Christians to start acting or to be more Christ like. Acting would be fine.

Why does God allow religion?

Is this freedom of speech or veiled condemnation of poor black people in a poor land by an old school racist preacher?

Sometimes I wish there really was a pitchfork-toting Devil and a red hot Hell so that Pat and his ilk could go there when they die.

It does make you wonder, though, at what kind of tormented demons inhabit this senile old gasbag's mind--or what's left of it.

I agrre with him. In fact my car didn't start this morning and it's not due to the 20 sentimiters of snow or the very cold temperature, it's because I thought very bad things about such a holy man as good old Pat. So God punished me!
This is another proof that the mother of idiots is always pregnant!
