There are a lot of things that can be said about Pat Robertson. Many people love him and hang on his every word. I am NOT one of those people.
I am of the belief that Robertson is a few sandwiches short of a pic-nic.
This YouTube isn’t all I am basing my opinion on. Oh no, one stupid statement does not a moonbat make.
Pat Robertson: ‘Haiti earthquake result of pact with the devil’
WASHINGTON – Conservative televangelist Rev. Pat Robertson on Wednesday blamed the earthquake in Haiti on a “pact with the devil” purportedly entered into by the Haitian people in a bid to defeat French colonizers in the late 18th century.
“Something happened a long time ago in Haiti, and people might not want to talk about it,” Robertson said on his Christian Broadcasting Network show. “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.’
“True story. And the devil said, ‘OK, it’s a deal,”‘ Robertson said. “Ever since, they have been cursed by one thing after another.”
Hours after his comments ignited a firestorm in the news media and online, Robertson’s “700 Club” TV show issued a statement elaborating on his remarks.
Robertson’s comments were based “on the widely-discussed 1791 slave rebellion… where the slaves allegedly made a famous pact with the devil in exchange for victory over the French. This history, combined with the horrible state of the country, has led countless scholars and religious figures over the centuries to believe the country is cursed,” the statement said.

Dude… You seriously need to shut the hell up and get back on your medications.
And I really want to take issue with the writer of this story over the opening line; ‘Conservative televangelist Rev. Pat Robertson’. Pat Robertson is NOT a Conservative, he’s a loon, a moonbat and he’s not speaking for me or anyone that I know that proudly wears the name Conservative!
“Dr. Robertson never stated that the earthquake was God’s wrath,” the statement went on. It added that “Dr. Robertson’s compassion for the people of Haiti is clear. He called for prayer for them.”
No Pat, the quake was caused by an abrupt movement deep within the earth and a shifting of a plate or a fault line. I’m pretty sure that in your mind however, since it happened deep inside the earth, it was a movement from HELL.
And Pat, you need to look into these volcano things, they might be the Devil releasing the fires of hell upon us. Just sayin’…
After reading Fred’s thoughtful take on Robertson, I decided to leave a comment of my own on his fine website. Here’s what I wrote – edited slightly.
Robertson has always been prone to spouting – shall we say – “questionable” rhetoric, but in recent years he’s mutated from a fairly harmless nincompoop into a barking mad, fire-and-brimstone-spewing crackpot.
Even if one actually believes in such things as curses, common human decency prohibits making the sort of statement that Pat did on national television while tens of thousands (at least) of men, women and children are lying dead or dying in the streets.
Somehow I doubt that the survivors of the recent catastrophe in Haiti will be comforted by the notion that Reverend Robertson is now praying for their immortal souls, especially since he just opined that their entire nation has been damned to hell.
Think about it… on the one hand, every Haitian is condemned (according to Pat) to suffer eternal damnation, which means any prayers for them are sure to fall on deaf ears. On the other hand, the good Reverend is praying for them anyway. Why?
Pick a freakin’ lane, jackass, and stay in it. Either the Haitians have been judged and sentenced by God – in which case you can’t save them with prayer – or they haven’t been judged yet, and you’re a raving dillhole for suggesting that they have.
