Pat Robertson Claims Haitians Had “Pact With the Devil”

This one is singularly stunning.

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

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 national 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.

“They were under the heel of the French, you know Napoleon the third 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 prince.’ True story. And so the devil said, ‘Ok it’s a deal.’ And they kicked the French out. The Haitians revolted and got something themselves free. But ever since they have been cursed by one thing after another,” Robertson said.

About 80-85% of Haitians are practicing Catholics, and 10 -15% are Protestant.

So THAT’s what he means…

Republican Candidate for VIrginia Governor, Robert McDonnell (left)

His Republican opponent Bob McDonnell has a bit of his past floating up, which may well put him in the proverbial “crapper”.

According to Slate

Bob McDonnell was 34 years old when, in 1989, he wrote his master’s thesis at the evangelical Regent University. The 93-page paper, first reported by the Washington Post over the weekend, was an action plan for the religious right. Among the opinions expressed: working women were “detrimental” to the family, the government should penalize unmarried “cohabitators, homosexuals or fornicators,” that divorce should be further restricted, and that family is “God-ordained government” untouchable by civil law. Twenty years later, McDonnell—now the Republican candidate for governor of Virginia after having served as the state’s attorney general—says his opinions have changed. Seeking to minimize political damage from the Post‘s discovery, McDonnell told reporters the idea “that a 20-year-old academic exercise somehow represents my 18-year career in public service is just a flat misrepresentation,” adding that he had encouraged his daughters to pursue advanced academic degrees and noting that one daughter had served in the military in Iraq.
