In Defense of Pat Robertson

The other day, one of the greatest men in broadcasting, uttered something that many took as being insensitive or even crazy. That man, Pat Robertson, is a good hearted Christian who has done much good in the world. Even Morning Joe, a liberal on that liberal MSNBC, stated as such. From providing gainful employment in Third World countries, to starting up world-class learning institutions (whose former students improve the world for the better), to his deep commitment to ethics and accuracy, Pat has done more good for this world than many realize. I know for a fact that this is why my aunt Mackie has spent large sums funding his (and God's) good causes.

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.

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.
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.

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 :)

Excellent post Reggie. I just wanted to point out that between your points A and B were 3 hurricanes in the past year and countless mudslides. I'm sure the devil told them to cut all the trees down.

Pat is just speaking truth...and look at the outreach he has generated. He asked people to pray for those "fallen" folks in Haiti. All they really need is prayer. I mean, they were already poor so they don't need our money. They were already hungry, so what good would more food do for them? Yup, all we need to do is pray for them. When God stops striking them with hurricanes and earthquakes and so on, then we'll know they have been sufficiently prayed for. Until then, that's the best thing we can do for those folks in Haiti

Good point marvene, don't underestimate the bad influence of the devil. You look at Haiti, what with their sweatshops, timbered forests, people thrown off their land to provide a captive workforce in Port O Prince, unfair tariffs placed on rice and sugarcane to benefit multinational agribusiness.....clearly this is all the work of the devil.

Yeah, exactly wfp. Pat called for prayer, and Haiti is now basking in the warmth and goodness that that prayer brought. Without Pat's call for prayer, on his most excellent 700 Club program, do you really think Haiti would be receiving all the millions and billions they are now getting? I think not. But yeah, I agree WFP, sending money is probably not going to help. I saw O'Reilly say they gave them billions with a B over the past few years, and look how poor they are still. Prayer and good thoughts are clearly the way to go.

This is very interesting. Especially the part about Pat Robertson helping to save us from that terrible nuclear bomb that was just about to detonate over America. Just the other day, Lucifer told me that an asteroid was going to hit the world, so me and my satanic brethren prayed to our dark lord, and He spared the earth. Doesn't that make you so grateful for Satan's help?

Anonymous, you should talk to our very own Winston, who has warned us of the very real concern of Nebiru, the black star that is hurling towards Earth.
