Leave it to Pat Robertson. According to this butthead, the people of Haiti are "cursed" because they "made a pact with the devil" to get rid of the French. What??? I always thought earthquakes were caused by shifting tectonic plates, but now I find out that the devil is behind it - or is it god punishing the Haitians for allying with he-who-cannot-be-named?

As for history - let's see if I can get this straight: the Haitians made a pact with the devil to get rid of French colonialism. Does that mean that Americans also made a pact with the devil to get rid of the English? Are we also doomed to eternal suffering because of it? Are the September 11 terrorist attacks, the financial crisis, the reign of Cheney-Bush and all the other ills we've experienced caused by our pact with the devil? Have we really gone to hell in a hand-basket?

I say to hell with Pat Robertson!

  1. I think you're being a bit mild. The degree of despotism passing for current events is nightmarish. Pick a point on the compass and look up. There before you will be another jackal opportunist selling someone's flesh for profit or selling out to those who do. But, I think when one's life's work is supposed to be about God, and they can spread ignorance and hate like this, it summons the question as to whether they themselves are not indeed on the other team.
