It's the Devil's Fault, Says Robertson

by Rev. A. J. Iovine

Pat Robertson, the televangelist head of the Christian Broadcasting Network and “The 700 Club” television program, made a startling statement yesterday when it came to the devastating earthquake that hit Haiti.

Robertson said that the devil did it.

Even more, he said that the people of Haiti did this to themselves when they made a pact with the devil to get rid of their French occupiers in the 19th Century.

His evidence includes the state of the island in which Haiti is located — they share Hispaniola with the Dominican Republic. According to the reverend, the pact with the devil has kept Haiti from prospering. While the Dominican Republic has prospered, Haiti is impoverished. And now Haiti is suffering under a devastating earthquake while the DR is not.

Does this require a response?

I can’t believe I even typed those words above.

    it does merit a response, but was it really said at the right time?
