    Pat Robertson, a Christian televangelist, speaking today about the devastating earthquake in Haiti, said Haitians had collectively "sworn a pact to the devil," which brought on the country's extreme poverty and the earthquake.

    "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 ... 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. So the devil said, 'OK, it's a deal.'"

    "Ever since, they have been cursed by one thing after another," Robertson said, referring to the country's poverty.

    Robertson was speaking on the Christian Broadcast Network during a drive by the network, which he founded, to raise money for disaster relief.

    "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," he said.

    About 80 percent of Haiti's population is Catholic, but many Haitians also practice voodoo, another monotheistic religion.

    Pat Robertson---pact with devil and playing with voodoo dolls just might have something to do with their problems and them being the poorest country in our hemisphere.

    Reverend Wright--- The US is an evil country because whites and jews are in leadership positions.

    Guess which one libtards find offensive.
  3. congratulations. you win the prize. i just knew at least one et wingnut would pop up and defend robertsons idiocy.
  4. At no point did FHL say Robertsons' opinion was acceptable he asked you a question though.

    Do you find Reverend Wright's comments, and the fact that Obama attended his church for many years to be highly offensive?

    I will give you an out, I find Robertson's view offensive, but im not religious so what do i know?

    I don't see where he "defended" anything.

    Seems to me he simply compared one to the other.
  6. Another rightwingnut supporting:

    Good God man, Jesus doesn't support strawman arguments...

  7. It is clear that this earthquake was a direct result of global warming.
  8. I just said in the above sentence that I am not religious, I am going to add this mishap on your part to the ongoing catalogue of liberal stupidity.
  9. So you are not religious so your repetitive use of strawman tactics is a reasoned approach to criticism of the right wing?

    No dummy, logically fallacious methods such as the strawman approach of the right wingers is indicative of a weak and shallow thinkers...

    You step in it, every time...

  10. Do you find Reverend Wright's comments, and the fact that Obama attended his church for many years to be highly offensive?
