But I find it appalling that people who never watch the 700 Club are all of a sudden up in arms about his comment. You know they got that audio from the gutter snipes at Media Matters or other Soros-funded organizations. They don't understand the context and complexity of what Mr. Robertson said.
ROBERTSON: Something happened a long time ago in Haiti and people might not want to talk about it. They were under the heel of the French. Napoleon the Third and whatever. And they got together and swore a pact to the devil. They said, “We will serve you if you get us free from the prince.” True story. And so the devil said, “OK, it’s a deal.” They kicked the French out, the Haitians revolted and got themselves free.People are focusing on the wrong thing. He wasn't blaming the Haitians in their time of great tragedy. He was blaming the devil for tricking a few Haitians back in the late 1700's and early 1800's. Clearly, we can go from Point A to Point B on this one. Point A: Haitian slaves revolt against cruel French slaveholders in 1791, defeat the French, accept French demands for reparations, Napolean III and whatever etc. Point B: Great earthquake hits Haiti in 2010. I don't know how much more I can explain the direct connection between the two. If you need more elaboration, you are either Godless or a liberal, which is quite redundant.
But ever since, they have been cursed by one thing after the other, desperately poor. That island of Hispaniola is one island. It’s cut down the middle, on the one side is Haiti, on the other side is the Dominican Republic. The Dominican Republic is prosperous, healthy, full of resorts, etc. Haiti is in desperate poverty. Same island.
They need to have, and we need to pray for them, a great turning to God. And out of this tragedy I’m optimistic something good may come. But right now, we’re helping the suffering people and the suffering is unimaginable.
So please liberals, do not try to bash good ole Pat on this site, I will not stand for it. Pat was calling for us to pray for the Haitians, which has proven to be quite successful, such as when he encouraged prayers which stopped the nuclear bomb from falling on us in 2007. Pat was blaming the devil, not the Haitians, and his historical account is quite accurate. Pat knows his stuff, and I challenge any one of you to prove otherwise. He proved himself remarkably prescient in a 1992 fundraising letter when he said...
The feminist agenda is not about equal rights for women. It is about a socialist, anti-family political movement that encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become lesbians.I mean, that is an established fact. Anyone smart enough to utter the above comment should be forgiven for his clumsily worded (but completely accurate) Haiti comments. But I doubt good ole Pat needs my defense. He seems quite strong enough to handle himself :)
