Skip to comments.Pat Robertson blames Haiti suffering on 'pact with devil' (Idiot Alert)
Posted on 01/13/2010 2:05:52 PM PST by Red in Blue PA
US EVANGELICAL preacher Pat Robertson has blamed Haitians directly for the devastating earthquake, saying that the country "swore a pact to the devil'' at its creation. "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 The 700 Club.
The 80-year-old former presidential candidate said Haitians were originally "under the heel of the French".
"You know, Napoleon the third, or whatever.
"And they got together and swore a pact to the devil.
"They said, we will serve you if you will get us free from the French. True story.

RObertson is an idiot and only serves to make Christians everywhere look bad.
not the first time Robertson has made all of us believers look like Looney Tunes by sticking his foot in it
Well, there’s a “pact with the Devil” who is the destroyer and death... here in this country, when parents in this country kill over 50 million of their own kids...
I would be expecting that judgement from God to be coming soon....
Oh... wait a minute... I forgot, at least part of that judgment did arrive... Obama was elected...
What a maroon.
You can make a decent case that the US might have gotten into a major war with France if Napoleon’s (the First) plans for expansion into North America hadn’t come apart due to the resistance of the people and mosquitoes of Haiti.
So he sold us Louisiana instead of invading.
Robertson is becoming senile.
Robertson watched too many James Bond movies where the Hatians were using magical spells and voodoo to change people into zombies. Time to hang up the old mike there Pat and retire down in some town that will have ya.
Corruption of a few causes the suffering of many. Look at the relatively prosperous Dominican Republic which shares the same island.
To blame this on a “pact with the devil” is beyond asinine.
(BTW, this corruption is increasingly happening here)
>> Robertson is becoming senile.
We just had Christmas -- and a lot of people were thinking about a cute little baby Jesus or a very nice man who said nice things to people, was uplifting, and healed a bunch of people...
What people really need to remember is that there's this "big bad Jewish fellow" out there, who's showing up soon, sorta unexpected, and he's "looking for bear" and is gonna open up "the biggest can of whoop-ass" you've ever seen in your life, on a bunch of people here on earth. LOL...
However, many fail to understand -- but they will "understand" when the Messiah of Israel returns to this earth, sets His feet on the soil of this globe, and sets up the ruling authority -- the one-world government -- that He puts into place over all nations, including the United States.
He's the Messiah of Israel, that He is coming back to earth, to set up a one-world government, with His headquarters in Jerusalem, ruling over all the nations of the world, including the United States and will rule over all who are still alive (from who are living right now today) -- and that He will definitely scrap the Constitution of the United States and make Himself the supreme ruler over all that we do.
The "day of reckoning" is coming for all of those who are trying to take over the world and put it totally under their control in an evil one-world empire. And they do admit that they want a one-world government -- their government, not God's...
When the Messiah of Israel comes back to this earth to set up His one-world government and subject all the nations of the world to His authority and rule -- He'll be making real short work of any of those yahoos...
And you can be sure that He will be utterly destroying anything to do with any of these yahoos, since whatever they say and do is a total perversion of anything to do with the Messiah of Israel.
And for sure -- we all, in this world, need the Messiah of Israel back, here on earth -- to destroy this coming one-world government and to install His own one-world government in its place.
I'm looking forward to the coming Kingdom on earth and the one-world government that the Messiah of Israel will be setting up, after He destroys, by His own hand, the present and evil one-world government that we see forming right now.
Isaiah 9:6-7 For unto us a Child is born. Unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of His government and peace There will be no end, Upon the throne of David and over His kingdom, To order it and establish it with judgment and justice From that time forward, even forever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.
No wonder Christians look bad.
It would be interesting to know what the column writer thought of Sarahs “Gods Plan” comment.
There is a loto f occult religion goes on in Haiti. I wouldn’t be too quick to discount God taking his hand of protection away from it.
Plus he said hurricanes rightfully struck areas where the gays live. He's out of his mind.
he went senile a while back.
I think we should all pray for God to save us from idiot TV preachers.
Pat Robertson is no Christian.....
This guy is a Liberal Free Trade Globalist and a Global Warming nutball....he spent millions pushing the man-made Global Warming agenda.
Robertson agrees with Al Gore, George Soros, Barack Obama, Jimmy Carter, et al....on the two nuttiest anti-American global movements.
(Of course, most Global Warmists are Liberal Free Trader Globalists....many in the latter will not admit to the former)
Robertson’s comments about Haiti are absolutely stupid.
So God moved the tectonic plates beneath Haiti because many practice voodoo there?
Haiti Progres. This Week in Haiti,, Vol.16 no.20, 5-12;11 August 1998
The origin of the 13-year Haitian revolution is traced to a voudou ceremony held at Bois Caiman, near the northern city of Cap Haitien, on the night of Aug. 13-14, 1791 and presided over by a slave and voudou priest named Boukman.
Now 207 years later, a band of right-wing Protestants has launched an evangelical crusade to posthumously convert Boukman to Christianity.
Pastor Berthony Paul, Pastor Joel Jeune, and preacher Gregory Joseph, a former police attache, have threatened to lead their congregations, which they call Haiti Protestant Vision, to Bois Caiman to hold a Protestant service to exorcise the spirit of Boukman.
But their crusade so far has been foiled by a coalition of Haitian popular organizations as well as by Haitian authorities. On July 8, the Ministry of Culture issued an order prohibiting the Protestants from assembling in the Bois Caiman area. The three Protestant leaders were arrested on Aug. 2 when trying to defy the order.
