Pat Robertson: Haiti Disaster Due to Haiti’s “Pact to the Devil”

By Jorge Rivas Jan 13, 2010

First we had Rush Limbaugh take the racist bigot prize when he said Americans deserve an apology from Obama for addressing the Haitian earthquake sooner than the attempted Christmas bombing. And, just when you thought it couldn’t get any worse, this morning Pat Robertson on the Christian Broadcasting Networks’ "The 700 Club" gave his co-anchor (a woman of color) a "history lesson", explaining why this tragedy has befallen Haiti:

And you know, Kristi, something happened a long time ago in Haiti, and people might not want to talk about it. They were under the heal of the French. You know, Napoleon the third, or whatever. And they got together and swore a pact to the devil. 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.
