Pat Robertson: Haiti “Cursed” After “Pact to the Devil”

January 14, 2010

Pat Robertson, the American Christian televangelist and host of “The 700 Club,” said that Haitians need to have a “great turning to god” while he was reporting on the devastating 7.0 earthquake that shook the island nation — the most powerful to hit the country in a century.

As Haitian Prime Minister Jean-Max Bellerive said “well over” 100,000 people may have died in the natural disaster, Robertson took to the airwaves Wednesday on his show and said that the country has been “cursed by one thing after another” since they “swore a pact to the devil.”

“Something happened a long time ago in Haiti and people might not want to talk about,” Robertson said Tuesday.

 I don’t think Pat Robertson used the least bit of wisdom with his comments, even if they are true or not (very unlikely that they are). I don’t believe this is a time to speak against this nation, this is a time to keep them in our prayers and believe God would use this for some good. I am a firm believer in God’s righteous wrath and sovereignty, but right now this nation does not need christians or televangelists pointing their bony fingers at them, accusing them of wicked idolatrous living they need to given hope and prayer. Not the best choice of words there Pat, but I am sure God will abundantly pardon you for the flippancy of your words as He would abundantly pardon the satanic idolatry of a nation. He is that merciful and let’s not forget that. Here is the link to the article:
