Pat Robertson, the founder of the Virginia-based Christian Broadcasting Network and host of its 700 Club talk show, said that this week’s earthquake in Haiti was due to a “pact to the devil” that Haiti made 200 years ago to help free the country from French colonial control.
Pat Robertson's remarks were ridiculous like always. The comments are so insensitive to the disaster and it may be an attempt to score political points off human tragedy.
Limbaugh's comments on Haiti were ridiculous too. He said the earthquake has played into Obama’s hands, allowing the president to look “compassionate” and “humanitarian.”
Some say Robertson's comments appeal to a fan base that believes he hears God's voice and knows the divine mind.
