The Rev. Pat Robertson is offering his own absurd explanation for why a quake hit Haiti: Many years ago, the island’s people “swore a pact to the devil.”

“Something happened a long time ago in Haiti, and people might not want to talk about it,” the controversial televangelist said during an interview Wednesday on the Christian Broadcasting Network.

“They were under the heel of the French…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.’”

Robertson continued: “True story. And so the devil said, ‘OK, it’s a deal.’ They kicked the French out. The Haitians revolted and got themselves free. Ever since, they have been cursed by one thing after the other…”

“[Haitians] need to have a great turning to God, and out of this tragedy, I’m optimistic something good may come,” Robertson said.

One more turn of the screw – on Mr. Christianity himself.

    Alex, you obviously know nothing about Haitian history, not do those asswipes who blame voodoo and birthrate and other asinine assumptions. Why don’t stupid-ass people like you and pat robertson just STFU?

    America has been meddling in Haitian affairs since it was the last leg of the triangle trade. If your heart doesn’t go out to those poor people you really have serious mental and emotional problems.

    “Does any one find this surprising? Pat Robertson has a long history of saying crap like that, he has made a career out of it.”

    He’s been doing it so long, the only time he gets any attention is when he says something outrageous, so no one pays attention to him until the next time he says something outrageous… It’s a vicious circle.

    May it turn into the ninth circle of Hell for him…

  4. Rick Cain says:

    Pat Robertson is a Master Mason. He already made his own personal pact with the devil.

    No better way for the great deceiver to do his work than through the mouth of a man who purports to be one of god.
