Televangelist Pat Robertson must be either going senile or just doesn’t care about showing the world his white sheet and hoodie.
Speaking on the devastating earthquake in Haiti, Rush Limbaugh’s pal stated that the tragic event happened to the people of Haiti because they made a “pact with the devil.”
Robertson was speaking of the country being cursed because they led one of the first successful slave revolts, defeating France, which started to fuel more slave results and resistance throughout North and South America.
It’s said that the people of the time practiced the African religion voodoo and prayed to their Gods before preparing for the takeover.
Never one for having any tact… I guess having your own television network, CBN (Christian Broadcasting Network) gives you that freedom, Robertson said on Wednesday:
“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’ll get us free from the French.’ True story. And the devil said, ‘OK, it’s a deal.’ Ever since, they have been cursed by one thing after another.”
With those statements, Robertson pretty much confirmed a though felt by many people which is Haiti is still being persecuted for standing up for themselves and becoming the first independent Black republic. [Shout out to Toussaint L’ouverture for leading the charge].
[Since y’all ni*gas were the first ones to start this rebellion and Shyte which eventually led over to the states (although slaves here didn’t forcibly free themselves), we will penalize y’all forever and that’s pretty much been carried out by European ancestors over time.]
Since his “slip” of words, “The 700 Club” has released a statement on behalf of Robertson, reading:
“Robertson’s comments were based “on the widely-discussed 1791 slave rebellion where the slaves allegedly made a famous pact with the devil in exchange for victory over the French. This history, combined with the horrible state of the country, has led countless scholars and religious figures over the centuries to believe the country is cursed.
Dr. Robertson never stated that the earthquake was God’s wrath,” the statement went on. It added that “Dr. Robertson’s compassion for the people of Haiti is clear. He called for prayer for them.”
Kristi Watts (Robertson’s Co-anchor)… I wonder what was going through your mind as he spoke… SMH.
Never mind this idiot though, to help support the relief effort for Haiti, relief funds can be donated to the Yele Haiti non-profit organization by texting “Yele” to 501501. For more information, log on to www.yele.org.
