Fuck you, Pat Roberston

According to this prominent Christian man shithead motherfucker, Haitians are suffering right now because they have, “sworn a pact to the devil.”  And he said it while trying to raise funds for the disaster relief.  Because, you know, nothing encourages good Christians to cough up the dough better than a good Godless Heathens story.

Transcript after the jump

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, uh, you know, Napoleon III and whatever.  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.  And so the devil said, ‘OK, it’s a deal.’  And uh, they kicked the French out of—you know, the Hatians revolted and got themselves free.  But ever since, they’ve been cursed by one thing after the other.  They are desperately poor.  That island of Hispanola is one island.  It’s cut down the middle.  One the one side is Haiti, on the other side is the Dominican Republic.  The Dominican Republic is propserous, healthy, full of resorts, etc.  Haiti is in desperate poverty.  Same islands.  Uh, 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.
