Deal With the Devil

I looked at pictures of the aftermath of the quake in Haiti and cried. Pat Robertson had a slightly different reaction.

PAT ROBERTSON: 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. You know, Napoleon III and 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, "OK, it's a deal."And they kicked the French out.

You know, the Haitians revolted and got themselves free. But ever since, they have been cursed by one thing after the other. Desperately poor. That island of Hispaniola is one island. It's cut down the middle. On the one side is Haiti; on the other side is the Dominican Republic. Dominican Republic is prosperous, healthy, full of resorts, et cetera. Haiti is in desperate poverty. Same island. They need to have and we need to pray for them a great turning to God. And out of this tragedy, I'm optimistic something good may come. But right now, we're helping the suffering people, and the suffering is unimaginable.

KRISTI WATTS (co-host): Absolutely, Pat.

If there is a hell, I know whom I'll be seeing there.


  1. Robertson is a senile old sociopath. Sadly, even this will not be enough to convince people that he shouldn't be allowed to talk in public anymore.

  2. As I said over at the smrties, the fact that black slaves were able to beat their white rightful owners is proof that they made a pact with the Devil.

  3. OMG. This is so bad my cat just vomited. I'm not even kidding about that, though his reasons for vomiting may be conjecture on my part :P

    I cried as I read about Haiti in my morning paper today. It's so terrible that so many lives are lost for no other reason than them not having the wealth to build safer homes and infrastructure.

  4. That implies you’re going to Hell?

    Eh, I’m not really all that shocked or offended by the bullshit from a senile old evangelical asshat. He’s a tired nobody. Loathsome, yes, but still a nobody.

    Personally, I just love Keith Olbermann’s response to his (and Rush Limbaugh’s) bullshit.

  5. Thanks for posting that, Joé. Olbermann says it like it is.

  6. Nooooooo, I don't want Pat Robertson to go to hell. He'll ruin it for the rest of us and make it Not Fun.

  7. Wait a minute. Is it allowed to "help the suffering people" if Gawd smote them in the first place? Isn't he worried about catching a little blowback smiting by even pretending to help the victims?
