Message Subject White House calls Robertson's Haiti comment 'stupid'
Poster Handle Anonymous Coward
Post Content
The White House has dismissed as "stupid" comments by evangelist broadcaster Pat Robertson suggesting that quake-struck Haiti was cursed.

Spokesman Robert Gibbs said he was amazed by the remarks.

During a broadcast on his Christian Broadcasting Network, Mr Robertson suggested the Haiti's earthquake was divine retribution.

He said Haiti had sworn a pact with the devil when it freed itself from French colonial rule.

The White House said the comments were completely inappropriate.

"It never ceases to amaze, that in times of amazing human suffering, somebody says something that could be so utterly stupid," Mr Gibbs said.

"But it, like clockwork, happens with some regularity."

Mr Robertson, an 80-year-old former presidential candidate, made the comments on Wednesday on his programme, "The 700 Club".

"They said, we will serve you if you will get us free from the French. True story. And so, the devil said, okay it's a deal," the televangelist said during the broadcast.

"Ever since, they have been cursed by one thing after the other," he added, comparing Haiti to its more prosperous neighbour, the Dominican Republic.

Like ALL of the conservative right-wing pseudo-christian extremists, Pat Robertson is a false teacher and purveyor of lies and false doctrine.

Christ repeatedly told us to love our enemies and pray for those on the wrong path. God does not do the things that Satanic 'wolves in sheep clothing' prophets like Robertson claim.

It is false teachers like Pat Robertson that are responsible for people falling away from the faith because they see the apostasy, hate, and lies in their heart and they mistakenly believe it is Christianity to blame and not the deliberate agenda of evil men that it is.
