Pat Robertson Unleashes His Inner Psycho Once Again
January 14, 2010
U.S. (ChattahBox) – Once again standing up to make comments that put the rest of the country to shame, Revered Pat Robertson has come out to say that the Haitians only brought the earthquake on themselves.
On CBN’s ’700 Club’, Robertson decided to give the Christian nation what he says is a “true” history lesson on the Haitians:
“You know … something happened a long time ago in Haiti. … They got together and swore a pact to the Devil. They said, ‘We will serve you if you get us free from the French.’ True story.”
Something tells me “true story” is rather subjective when it comes to Reverend Pat.
The remarks have already been widely vilified, including by the White House.
“I’m kind of speechless about that kind of remark,” White House adviser Valerie Jarrett said.
“Our heart goes out to the people of Haiti. That’s not the attitude that expresses the spirit of the president or the American people, so I thought it was a pretty stunning comment to make.”
Apparently surprised that his love for Haiti was not made clear, and that even the White House was shaking their finger, CBN released the following statement:
“Dr. Robertson never stated that the earthquake was God’s wrath. If you watch the entire video segment, Dr. Robertson’s compassion for the people of Haiti is clear.”
