Pat Robertson: ‘Haiti earthquake result of pact with the devil’

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’…

He once said that Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon’s incapacitating stroke was divine retribution for withdrawing from the Gaza Strip.

In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina in 2005, Robertson seemed to link the storm to abortion. About the same time, he called on the U.S. to assassinate Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez.

As I said, I am not basing my opinion of Robertson strictly on that YouTube. These last few lines point to a very screwed up mind, and I seriously hate the fact that some in the media relate this guy with the Conservatives of the USA or try to make him in some way relevant to it.

Following the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks, Robertson surmised that lack of prayer in public schools and tolerance of abortion and pornography meant that “God Almighty is lifting his protection from us.”

No Pat, 9-11 was the work of Muslim extremists, guys that give Islam a bad name, well, a worse name. Much like you Pat. You, and your moonbat rants give good Christians a bad name!

I’m pretty sure that this post will offend a few people. So be it.

I have NO USE for Pat Robertson and his ilk, if I am wrong, if Robertson is right and isn’t crazy, then it’s MY cross to bear.

If my opinions of Robertson give you grief or causes you pain, that’s your problem to deal with as you see fit.  :twisted:

    Pat Robertson has no more power to speak for God than I do, or you or anyone else. He is one of those who gives Christianity a bad name. :?

    That being said, I am of the mind that God can, and does, use the dregs of the earth to send wake up calls, but for this clown to summarily state that the slaughter of innocents is due to something that happened decades ago, just boggles the mind.

  2. Silver Fox says:

    I don’t know which hand shakes the earth–that of good or evil or just perhaps mother nature, but I do know this—Pat Robertson doesn’t know either. I really hate to see dumb statements like that come from those who are often connected to the right.

    Strangely, I caught the tail end of a statement by Slick Willy on the history of Haiti and he was blaming the poor economic conditions there on events that happened 200 years ago, but you will never here the MSM mention that, or just perhaps they also think this way.

    I will say this in closing, the people of that island nation are certainly having a hard time at moment—this thing is not there fault. But the years of poverty and misery must be laid at their door steps. They rebelled against the slave owners and won, but their victory was short lived. And for years now, they have been slaves to their igorance and stupidity and thats been compounded by nations like the United States providing welfare, rather than letting the people of Haiti stand on their own.

  3. Gawfer says:

    From a Christian perspective, Pat is in serious need of a Plexiotomy.

    In Matthew 24, Christ spoke of the coming ‘End Times’ that was globally minded; not locally minded. Pat needs to stop using the MSM to interpret the bible.

    Plexiotomy indeed.

  4. ng4779 says:

    Yup, Pat is rowing with one oar in the water. It’s time for him to be put out to pasture.

  5. minuteman26 says:

    Agree that Pat does have some off the wall views. What this earthquake shows though, is that the people of Haiti are not capable of governing themselves. Country should be put up for bids. Agree with Pat on one thing he said and that is Hugo Chavez should be assassinated.

  6. TexasFred says:

    MM26, I have nothing FOR Hugo Chavez, but Robertson called for him to be assassinated…

    Is THAT what a *man of GOD* does??

    Calling Robertson a moonbat isn’t calling names, it’s a statement of fact…

  7. minuteman26 says:

    Ref – Is that what a man of God does? Don’t know, but I guess that’s something that will be found out in the hereafter. Eliminating Chavez, is however, the prudent thing to do IMHO. It eliminates a serious problem for this country and all of South America and saves the people of his country from years of suffering. The man is pure evil.

  9. TexasFred says:

    MM26, fully agreed on the EVIL that IS Hugo Chavez, but when a MAN OF GOD, a supposed MAN OF GOD, calls for assassination, it sorta blows the MAN OF GOD part…

    Chavez isn’t the topic here, Pat Robertson is, Chavez was merely an example of the lunacy and hypocrisy that Robertson represents…

    I think we ALL agree on Chavez, but I can’t see a so-called PREACHER, not a TRUE man of GOD, calling for ANY assassination…

  10. Robert says:

    Gawfer is absolutely correct. Truthfully Pat was absolutely correct when he spoke about the border and even Hugo Chavez, regardless of his reasons he was right. The border needs to be sealed and Hugo should catch a bullet. I don’t care if those things are said from a pulpit or a street corner. BUT this man needs to quit searching for biblical reasons for disasters. Basically he is using the fear in old folks to fund his church org. IF he can convince them that the end is near and only those that hang on every word will make it to heaven and it will cost them a month’s check…He continues to be relevant.

  11. TexasFred says:

    If I had to resort to tactics used by charlatans like Robertson, I would expect that GOD would take issue with that!

    Robertson isn’t speaking truth or reality, he’s preaching FEAR and what will fill HIS coffers..

    The truth will set you free, but it may not make you popular.. :|

  12. Gawfer says:

    The problem with ol’ Pat calling for the assassination of Chavez is that in his senior years, Pat’s boundaries of public statements and personal views have become blurred and undefinable. It is one thing to recognise a clear and present danger posed by a dictator from another country and privately believe the world might be a better place with his vacancy, but to publicly call for the assassination of any leader is irresponsible; especially in the case of Robertson who had a significant public platform already.

    Frankly, he’s lucky some psycho nut didn’t execute his orders and then credit him with the outcome.

  13. DarcPrynce says:

    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 your prayers for them are sure to fall on deaf ears, yet 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.

  14. Robert says:

    I wouldn’t piss on Pat R’s head if it were on fire but he is but a CHURCH mouthpiece, he is not a leader of a nation nor in control of any military force that could act on an order or suggestion. IF some nutbag in his circles took out ol Hugo and blamed Pat R, there are many of us who would give him a medal….Personally I don’t care nor do I listen to Pat R, but his free speech is as protected as any other moron. My point is that his whole reason for saying such stupid shit is the fear he instills in his elderly, full of cash flock.

    Haiti is nothing more than our future under the current admin. They have a corrupt government. Check

    They are socialists. Check

    The Government body does not have to follow the laws/rules they enact. Check

    the list goes on….

    Haiti has problems that go way back.
    Remember the Maurice Du Vallier regime and his “ton-tons”?
    All criminals who were voodoo worshipers.

    Just like Michelle Obama’s mother who lives in the WHITE HOUSE presently and was caught in voodoo worship the other day in her room.
    Now that is worth further investigation!

    The whole Haiti is a pisshole in the tropics to me.
    And I hope our negroid president does not let any of those refugees into this USA.

  17. TexasFred says:

    Mr. Chuck: He will… Look for a HUGE *open door* policy for survivors…

  18. Mr Pink Eyes says:

    Pat Robertson blamed America for September 11th, that tells us all we need to know about this moron.

  19. LD Jackson says:

    There are times when I am left shaking my head at the stupidity of some people. This is one of those times. Pat Robertson needs to learn to keep his mouth shut and his thoughts to himself.

  20. Always On Watch says:

    When Robertson utters these inane statements, he damages the credibility of all Christians. Ugh.

    BTW, sorry for my absence here lately. So much going on in this household — all good lately, for a change.
