Pat Robertson Blames Haiti Earthquake on 'Pact With the Devil'
Pat Robertson Blames Haiti Earthquake on 'Pact With the Devil'

Televangelist Pat Robertson said the earthquake that devastated Haiti was brought on because the impoverished island nation swore a "pact with the devil" when colonized by the French.

Robertson made the comments Wednesday during a broadcast on his Christian Broadcast Network, the New York Daily News reported.


"They were under the heel of the French ... and they got together and swore a pact to the devil. They said, 'We will serve you if you'll get us free from the French'."

Robertson continued: "True story. And so the devil said, 'OK, it's a deal.' They kicked the French out. The Haitians revolted and got themselves free. Ever since, they have been cursed by one thing after the other."

I think many Haitians turned to Christianity from practicing Voodoo...

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 795136

CBN.com – VIRGINIA BEACH, Va., January 13, 2010 --On today’s The 700 Club, during a segment about the devastation, suffering and humanitarian effort that is needed in Haiti, Dr. Robertson also spoke about Haiti’s history. His comments were based on the widely-discussed 1791 slave rebellion led by Boukman Dutty at Bois Caiman, where the slaves allegedly made a famous pact with the devil in exchange for victory over the French. This history, combined with the horrible state of the country, has led countless scholars and religious figures over the centuries to believe the country is cursed. Dr. Robertson never stated that the earthquake was God’s wrath. If you watch the entire video segment, Dr. Robertson’s compassion for the people of Haiti is clear. He called for prayer for them. His humanitarian arm has been working to help thousands of people in Haiti over the last year, and they are currently launching a major relief and recovery effort to help the victims of this disaster. They have sent a shipment of millions of dollars worth of medications that is now in Haiti, and their disaster team leaders are expected to arrive tomorrow and begin operations to ease the suffering.

Anyone have anything to share?

At least the story of the pact is somewhat true.
