Did you watch the whole thing? Pat goes on to talk about how Haiti made a deal with the devil when they kicked the French out, and how they have basically been paying for that ever since. I didn't know slave revolts were deals with the devil, but leave it to Pat to straighten us all out on that.


But this is from a guy who agreed with Jerry Falwell when he blamed 9-11 on gays and feminists, among other americans.

Just please, don't give him any money. Not even for the relief effort. The Salvation Army is a far more ethical organization, and you know they were already there when the earthquake struck, and they will continue working there for as long as their organization exists. Denominational/church relief groups are good, too, because you can keep track of where the money goes, if you feel the need to do so. When Pat is saying things like this, he makes all christians look ignorant and cruel.

I doubt if anyone who's lost relatives and friends in the disaster will ever see it as a blessing in disguise.

Robertson made a stupid, thoughtless statement, whichever side of the religious fence one views it from.

At this moment in time you are corrrect, but I clearly stated that we don't know what the future holds and God's purposes and intentions are based on the big picture and not necessarily the here and now. What appears to be a horrible tragedy today may hold an unexpected blessing tomorrow. Are you familiar with the story of Joesph?

As for Roberts comments on God's retribution for some pack with the devil is over the edge, without proof that such a pack was made. I think that Roberts is listening to himself talk and mistaking it for the Holy Spirit.

While I don't know if any Satanic deals were cut, the idea that there is an opportunity for Haitians because of this disaster is pretty widespread. I must have heard this sentiment spoken 3 or 4 times yesterday by various people I ran into (not by 700 Club fans, either).

Everybody knows that Haiti is politically corrupt in the most entrenched sort of way and that a substantial number of the people are trapped in an economic system designed to keep them in near-slavery. When people (including Robertson, I guess) speak about a blessing in disguise, they are seeing a potential future in which the survivors benefit by having the old system broken.

Nobody would take the position of wishing for a natural disaster to accomplish this end but I think it's okay to recognize that a game-changing disaster could enable this end.

Pat Robertson does, by making Christians appear to be nuts. He says in the video that Haitians pledged themselves to the devil (???) to free themselves from "Napoleon III". Haitian independence came in 1804. Napoleon III was born a few years AFTER that.

I've figured out why the woman sitting next to him just says "hmmm" when he makes that observation. It probably wouldn't be a good career move for her to leap to her feet and tell him just what a batshit crazy old bugger he is. :rolleyes:

For those that are bashing Pat, he done more for aiding the poor in countries like Africa than anyone I know. His statement about this tragedy may have been a little off the wall but at the end of this video he states that this is a new beginning for the people of Haiti and that he supports the building effort. Plus, you will see that he puts his money where his mouth is in lending aid. How about you. Talk is cheap. I will be sending a donation to the 700 Club for Haitian relief.

She probably went to Regents University. I think it's as easy to get admitted there as it is to Florida State.
Or else she's an ex-Miss America, there seem to have been plenty of them working at CBN over the years.

When I get paid again, I'll donate through my church. My church basically just collects checks for the Red Cross during emergencies like this or Katrina-most of our direct outreach is to local charities.

I have been struck by the number of missionaries I've seen on the news coverage of the quake. Whatever insanity Pat is spewing about the devil, it appears to me that God loves Haiti and it's people, or His people wouldn't be there is such numbers. The UMC, UCC, Catholic Relief Organizations, Salvation Army, and pretty much every other denomination have had strong presences in Haiti since the Duvaliers left. There are probably some jewish organizations involved, too. It's the poorest country in the hemisphere.

Lacarnut is alright. He probably just forgot to eat his bowl of Fiber One this morning.

I think we are all so passionate about this because seeing people in distress, like the folks in Haiti, brings out our natural desire to help in any way we can.

Pat Robertson's first desire was to go on TV and insult the Haiti people and say they deserved it. His heart is ugly. He's not a good man.

Lacarnut and Linda, you are both good people.

While he hasn't killed people (that I'm aware of) in the name of Allah like they have, I think he uses the name of God as a shield to present his distorted, un-Christian views from his pulpit.

God wants us to help those in need by feeding them, clothing them, and helping wherever possible so that they might come to know God and His love.

Getting on a national stage and saying, "They totally had it coming!" makes me recoil in horror. Imagine someone who doesn't know Christ hearing that. That kind of thing probably makes people turn away from God, not toward Him.

For Robertson to suggest that he somehow knows God's motivations or reasoning for anything strikes me as blasphemous and I'm pretty sure that earns you a one-way ticket to Hell.

But I don't know for sure, of course. It's just my opinion.

While some people may think that this is a good way for Haiti to have a new start with a clean slate, I sincerely doubt it. I am sure that they could do it, with proper leadership and support but are you kidding? Even now Obama can't say that the Haitians are in control of their own rescue efforts fast enough. Obama could not lead a retard parade. It is too Un-PC to even consider imposing anything on Haiti.

Baby, the 700 Hundred Club is the Christian culture equivalent of your local "morning" show. It's a feel-good, fluff show that offers entertainers, minor Christian celebutards, and lifestyle tips for the retired and the unemployed.

The MSM delights in picturing this show as a Christian version of PBS but it isn't. This show isn't any more "influential" among Christians than 'American Idol'. Robertson has a shrinking following but he's not an important voice among Evangelicals today, let alone among American Protestants.

Olbermann Demonizes Robertson, Misses Christianís Charity


This week, thousands of Haitians will be the beneficiaries of Pat Robertson. In fact, long before the horrific earthquake struck on Tuesday, when many of the more fashionable humanitarians who always flock to every tragedy probably would have been hard-pressed to find the island of Hispaniola on a map, Robertsonís Operation Blessing was already hard at work, helping to address the centuries-old tragedy that is Haitian poverty. Many Haitian bellies have been filled in the past, and undoubtedly many more Haitians will live and be fed in the coming days, because of Robertson and his organization, which has given more than $500 million in aid to suffering people since it began in 1978.

No offense, but I'd like to see the Operation Blessing's books. Call me whatever you want, but I think any charity's books should be public domain, whether it is the Red Cross, UNICEF, or whatever.

Thank you Mrs Smith. Just what I needed to shut some people up.

When someone does actually "put their money where their mouth is," we should understand the entire picture.
