Americans Are Upset Over Pat Robertson's Haiti Comment

The American people are very upset at US evangelical preacher Pat Robertson for the stupid comment he made about the Haitian people in their darkest hour.

Pat Robertson, Haiti, and the Devil

Pat Robertson says the reason Haiti got hit by this massive earthquake is because the Haitian people made a pact with devil in exchange for their freedom!

What a stupid ridiculous thing to say when thousands of innocent people lay dead after a natural disaster!

And to think... He is a Christian! A man of God!

I just read a comment posted on our blog by Lynn Albers apologizing to the Haitian people for his stupid comment.

In her comment she says:

If I can offer my sincere apology for his ludicrous statement, let this be it ten thousand times over. Please, please know that Americans do NOT share his viewpoint. We are weeping for your nation and pledge to do whatever we can to help you.

Read her full statement here.

Thank you, Lynn, we appreciate it.

Even the US The White House has dismissed as stupid comments by evangelist broadcaster Pat Robertson suggesting that quake-struck Haiti was cursed.

Spokesman Robert Gibbs said he was amazed by the remarks.

Here is the Dumb remark by Robertson about Haiti:

And you know, Kristi, something happened a long time ago in Haiti, and people might not want to talk about it.

They were under the heel of the French, uh, you know Napoleon the 3rd and whatever, 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 so the Devil said, 'Okay, it's a deal.'

And, uh, they kicked the French out, you know, with Haitians revolted and got themselves free.

But ever since they have been cursed by, by one thing after another, desperately poor.

So basically... He is suggesting that we should have remained slaves in the name of the Lord!

What an Idiot!

According to several mythologies around the world including the Haitian mythology, when you sign a pact with the devil you get every material comfort at your disposal.

This is not the case for Haiti.

Pat Robertson should make his mea culpa by conceding his worthlessness and the worthlessness of his imaginary god and devil.

Dear Loggers:

Pat Roberson needs to surround himself to GOD, IT SEEMS THAT HE SERVES DEMON NOT GOD WE BELIEVE IN. I am Haitian I was devasted by his horrible comment.

I am Haitian, leaving in Haiti, i am very disappointed to read something like that from a "Man of God".

From away it's easy to comments about the Haitian Matter, it's why i feel deeply hurt, when i am thinking about how bad is my country, how sad we are, every day we are crying for our parents and friends who passed away, for the future of our children, our country, thinking about what we gonna for leaving.

So even if we are crying now, but we still proud to be the first black people independent, whatever a crazy can think about the independence.

Haitians should pray, fast, and have a revival in the country ASAP. We should ask God to forgive, and have mercy on us. We need to give up our old ways, and become more spiritual.

I believe we just got spanked, and our Father is trying to get our attention.

Our old ways of doing things are not working, so we need to go with the program.
