Preaching the religion of Haiti

Pat Robertson, who once seems to have predicted Orlando might get hit by a meteor as payback for allowing gay pride flags to fly on its streets, and can't seem to tell a natural disaster from an unnatural one, has this time suggested the Haitians brought on the latest catastrophe themselves -- 200 years ago.

Haiti disaster blamed on pact with devil
Speaking on his television program The 700 Club, Mr Robertson said the pact happened "a long time ago in Haiti".

"They were under the heel of the French, you know Napoleon III [sic] and whatever. And they got together and swore a pact to the devil," he said.

"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."

"But ever since they have been cursed by one thing after another," he said.

Mr Robertson said the curse was evident when Haiti was contrasted with its neighbour, the Dominican Republic.

"That island of Hispaniola is one island. It is cut down the middle - on the one side is Haiti, on the other is the Dominican Republic," he said.

"Dominican Republic is prosperous, healthy, full of resorts, etc. Haiti is in desperate poverty. Same island.

Guambat reckons the Dominican Republicans (Robertson always sides with Republicans) must not have been touched by the quake.
