Christianist Opportunism

Whether it is the destruction of a small poor island nation, the events of 9/11, or the disaster that was New Orleans --- Pat Robertson has to come out and say something stupid. As for the earthquake in Haiti, Robertson says:

"Something happened a long time ago in Haiti, and people might not want to talk about it," he said on Christian Broadcasting Network's "The 700 Club." "They were under the heal of the French. You know, Napoleon the third, or whatever. And they got together and swore a pact to the devil. They said, we will serve you if you will get us free from the French. True story. And so, the devil said, okay it's a deal."

Robertson said that "ever since they have been cursed by one thing after the other" and he contrasted Haiti with its neighbor, the Dominican Republic."

So, here we have this so-called man-of-God with his own wild stories of Biblical Judgment. I just wish he would STFU.

I smell a fund-raising letter here sometime soon. Yep, send $25, $50, or $100 or this could be you...........
