Pat Robertson shows that even the right has it's share of nutjobs.

What can I say about Pat Robertson? Apparently Mr. Pat Robertson has blamed the earthquake in Haiti on his opinion that "Haiti at one time made a pact with the devil". You all read correctly. Pat claimed that the Haitian said "We will serve you if you will get us free from the French." This nut job believes that the Haitian "sold their soul" to Satan so they could be free of the French occupation and enslavement of their land. I have mixed thoughts on Pat Robertson. On one hand, I believe he truly does believe he's doing the lords work. People like Sharpton and Jackson are mere con men posing as men of god. However, the statements by Pat Robertson today on his CBN broadcast can't be taken serious for one second. What was more offensive in my eyes other then his kookish comments was that he didn't even use his show in which to ask his viewers to send donations to help the people of Haiti. I said in my first story on the crisis in Haiti that perishiners will be generous this Sunday with their donations to help the Haiti cause. In the case of Pat Robertson, I have to wonder is the reason why he didn't ask his viewers to send donations is, because he believes that the Haitian people "made their bed" with the devil?

I believe it might be time for Pat to sit down once and for all. It's bad enough that liberals falsely label conservatives as being religious extremists. Statements by Pat Robertson only gives fuel to their claims, and his comments are just an embarrassment all the way around.

Pat Robertson is nuts and a hater or other religions. I have little or no respect for him.

There is an old saying that goes like this: Beware of wolves wearing sheep clothing.

Pat Robertson, along with the late Jerry Falwell, are a couple of judgmental bastards; what do they know?

This remark reminds me when Falwell and Robertson got national TV, "The 700 Club" a couple of days after 9/11 and Robertson concurred with Falwell remarks, who blamed the disasters on gays and lesbians, feminists, the ACLU, Pagans, Liberals and abortionists.

Robertson calls himself a "Man of God".
Well, does the Man of God call for the folowing:
*The assination of a foreign leader, Hugo Chavez. How this any different for Robertson whom also had financial ties to former presidents Charles Taylor (Liberia) and Mobutu Sese Seko (Zaire), both internationally denounced for their systemic human rights violations?
*Claiming that Ariel Sharon stroke and failing health was an act of God. He also claimed former Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin assassination occurred for the same reason.
*Denouncing other faiths:
**He claim that some Protestant denominations harbor the spirit of the Antichrist.
**He has denounced Hinduism as "demonic".
**Islam as "Satanic."

Finally, Robertson claimed that he was once a faith healer and claims of having the power to deflect hurricanes through prayer.

That's a real nut job for you. That's why I don't take this guy and organize religion seriously.

I notice that when people attack "organized religion" they usually attack Christianity which I find to be the real target of the Left's bigotry it doesn't help when Pat Robertson makes baseless judgements of a nation isn't that supposed to God's job and not man's job.

While Pat Robertson may be out there there is this:

So it's not like he made up of whole cloth

I don't know about all of this Haiti "making a pact with the devil" stuff. In fairness, CBN had their disaster relief 800# posted there so I don't know what the agreement was between the two media organizations for this particular clip. I also don't know if this earthquake was God's judgement on this nation.

This is what I do know and believe as a Christian. God's word gives a multitude of examples of God judging nations who have turned away from Him and causing calamity in that nation of people ... open the Bible and read it for yourself. This is also a sign of the end times which I personally believe we are currently in. I know that we are not to touch God's annointed so unless I am sure in my heart that someone is not a man of God, I refrain from passing judgement. Example: Robert Tilton, I am most sure is not a man of God. Pat Robertson is a man of God. Does that mean that I believe and/or agree with everything he says ... no, I don't. Let's let God judge Pat Robertson. Let's pray for our nation because we have set ourselves up to be judged by God as we have turned away to the point that our President recognizes and proclaims that we are no longer a predominately Christian nation. As Christians, that should get our attention. As Christians, we are to help the people of Haiti no matter what their beliefs for that is our testimony.

Ok, I wish I had read this article that Anonymous posted prior to my original post ... apparently, there is some truth to what is being said about this "pact with Satan"

Anonymous; Showing a link to American Daily article... " So it's not like he made up of whole cloth".

I'd guess in this case it come's down to what "you" believe.

Pat Robertson says it's true, but offers no evidence to back his beliefs.

Haitian born scholar, Jean R. Gelin, Ph.D., says that in his research he found no evidence of a "devil pact" and declares the story a myth.

What a blog to find searching for some info. I complement you. Hope you are safe about what we hear about Baltimore, Md. We went to DC, myself and a soccer team for a tournament, Ethiopians, odd story, they'd hang out at the Dukem Restaurant, they have some Ethiopian waitresses and great food, entertainment, this one was so gorgeous and I as an American, stuck living on the credit card but still with very limited traveling ability there in the Crystal City tourist area, but we had a ball. Sometimes, someone really takes to another country and culture and I don't hang out with those guys as much, there was not a real connection, but after helping them practice, water carrier, goalkeeper sometimes, not fun work, I said, I'll take the trip out there from Minnesota a few summers ago. Loved what I saw of the cities, very nice.

African Cup of Nations going on right now, the Togo team got gun fire at in their bus going into the country of Angola on Jan. 8th, no players killed, but two personnel were ( and it seems it is 2 and not 3 as the early reports said, still two players hit by fire, one seriously). The rebels from the oil rich area of Cabinda have said they did not know they were firing on the Togo team.

This is way off topic, am I wrong though to think it is still news: I was just checking in to see if this might have been mentioned, you don't need to print this but I will try to find this blog from time to time. Darn firefox loses my bookmarks.

Found this in a search, but i read a lot, good info.

Pat Robertson indeed says some silly things sometimes yes, and the part about "assassinating someone" as anon says is drastic. Sean Hannity talks about attacking Iran because of their nuclear plants. After our experience in Iraq and Afghanistan, I've got to reflect on that quite a bit.
