A Charlatan Speaks

Pat Robertson has described Haiti's earthquake as "a blessing in disguise" and claimed the country has been "cursed" because of what he called a "pact with the devil" in its history.

His spokesman said the comments were based on Voodoo rituals carried out before a slave rebellion against French colonists in 1791.
"Something happened a long time ago in Haiti, and people might not want to talk about it," Robertson said during a broadcast.
"They (Haitians) were under the heel of the French ... and they got together and swore a pact to the devil.

"They said 'We will serve you' ... and so, the devil said 'Okay, it's a deal' and kicked the French out."

Shame on him for uttering such rubbish. Not the first time he's done it and likely not the last.
