Televangelist Pat Robertson sounded like
a demented old fool when he said the
devastating earthquake in Haiti is
"God's wrath for a pact Haitians made
with the devil" to gain independence from
the French.
"They were under the heel of the French,
you know, Napoleon the Third or whatever.
And they got together and swore a pact to
the devil" Robertson said Wednesday
on the Christian Broadcasting Network's
700 Club.
Insensitive and stupid as it was,
this is hardly the first time Robertson
has spewed such ridiculous apocalyptic
revelations. He told the Pennsylvania town
of Dover in 2005 that disaster might strike
there because its citizens voted out school board
members who favored teaching intelligent design
over the theory of evolution. That same year
he said Hurricane Katrina was sent by God
as a punishment for America's
legalization of abortion.
Robertson's babble is not to be confused
with real religious philosophy. He's
nothing more than a nut job peddling an
extreme right-wing world view.

It should be noted that after his idiotic remarks,
Pat said a prayer for the people of Haiti.
I'm praying too - that he gets hit by a truck.
