"We will serve you if you will get us free from the French."
Video at link.
True, but he gets some things right. I wish we’d have taken PR’s advice about Hugo Chavez ...
Sorry about the ping. I didn’t see your post.
“God had nothing to do with what happened in Haiti.”
No one knows for sure not even you.
Did God tell Pat this? Why hasn't God struck down America for abortion?
At least Jesus spared the French Quarter when He wiped out New Orleans.
It is not our job to prove that what Mr. Robertson said is NOT true.
He is the one making an outrageous and heretofore unreported claim. It is HIS job, and/or the job of those who support him, to prove that his claim IS true.
Thanks for the ping. I’ll be happy to post again. :)
I watched the video.
He gave his explanation.
Another *eye-rolling embarrassment* but I think he believes it.
I’m sure he’s praying for the people and he’s asking for donations for the people (disaster relief).
They Have Been Cursed: Pat Robertson Says Haiti Swore a Pact to the Devil
‘Pat Robertson has a pretty good track record of saying the most absolutely dumb-ass things.’
Maybe so, but can anyone identify what it is about Haiti that keeps it a perpetual mess in almost every sense of the word while the OTHER COUNTRY on the SAME ISLAND (Dominican Republic), while not exactly heaven on earth, is far less of a mess? There’s gotta be SOMETHING. Did DR get all the natural resources? All the smart people? All the GOOD people? Or is it something about the culture?
Actually, I just googled it, and there is a widely circulated story about just such a pact having been made by the slaves who revolted against the French. Apparently, the story circulates inside and outside Haiti.
No info on whether it’s true, or just a folk tale.
In any event, it probably wasn’t smart of Robertson to mention it, even if it is true.
Left leaning people are haters period and hate Christianity because the faith confronts them with their sin like most of the human race. They are nothing special.
Pat was right, we were cursed. That is why we now have Obama as President, are bankrupt and government healthcare. 9/11 is what got it all started.
Sam Kinnison (RIP): “Pat, this is the Lord. Go check the air pressure in your tires”
So, he believes God is vengeful and acts against mankind (the good, the bad and the ugly) using forces of nature
Big Deal. Pat worships the God of the Old Testament. So do many. That is not a defect.
Robertson’s beliefs are probably closer to the beliefs of the voodoo and Africanist/animist religionists in Haiti than his critics will stop to think about. I don’t remember a huge uproar when people in Haiti and elsewhere prayed (and/or cast magic spells) to be spared by a hurricane
Seriously, can Pat hush for two seconds. Geez.
