People are Suffering! This is Not the Time for Bad Theology!

Pat Robertson has been reported to have said that the people of Haiti are suffering because they have made a pact with the devil. 

MR. ROBERTS, NOW IS NOT THE TIME FOR BAD THEOLOGY!  YOU ARE WRONG!  FYI, Haiti is a Christian country with 80% of the population being Roman Catholic and 16% Protestant as per wikipedia.  Yes, some vodoo is practiced there, but Haiti is not the only place in the world where witchcraft is practiced.  It is practiced right here in the U. S as well in many forms - psychics, tarot card readers, mediums, magicians, and so on.  There is no  pact with the devil in Haiti, and even if there were, the great majority of people are god-fearing people who would rather suffer affliction with God than serve the devil.  You need to get your theology straight!  As a representative of the Christian faith, you are doing of POOR JOB of representing God.  Who appointed you as God's mouthpiece anyway?  Concentrate on doing good and leave the matter of judging others to God.

This is a warning to all Christians who think it is their god-given right to play God, and judge the motives and hearts of others without all the facts.

Most times I think Mr. Robertson believes the tales he tells but, once in a while, I suspect he's taking advantage of his television audience ... like in this case.

I can excuse the former> I can't excuse him playing off the folk religion of others.

Amen to that Teresa. What I don't understand is how he can offer cursings and blessings all at the same time. He makes his negative remarks and belittles the Haitians on national television, and then he offers to assist them through his ministry. I personally would be very much afraid of accepting help from someone who thinks very little of me.

Video of Pat Robertson making offensive remarks removed from post by me. It was disabled/removed from you-tube. See you-tube for other videos about Pat Robertson and Haiti(there are plenty!).
