Pat Robertson- Haiti Quake A "Blessing in Disguise"

Once again The Reverend Pat Robertson says something that makes your jaw drop; and then he compounds it and makes what he originally said even worse.

On his 700 Club TV ministry Robertson called the tragic earthquake in Haiti a possible "blessing in disguise" because of the potential to rebuild the structures that were downed. I'm sure the families of the estimated 100,000 dead or the possible 500,000 homeless appreciate his sunny optimism.

But The Reverend Pat doesn't stop there....he then told his audience that the Haitian people made a deal with the devil in order to get their independence during their revolt against "Napoleon III". Actually the Haitian people revolted against Napoleon III's uncle, Napoleon Bonaparte a half century before- but that's OK, Rev. Don't let the facts get in the way of a good story.

Anyway, the source of Haiti's problems were because of this Faustian deal; according to Pat Robertson, this is why the Haitian people have been cursed.

Jewish people have a term for such nonsensical stuff....."Bubbemeises". Loosely translated it means "Grandma's (Tall) Tales".

When it comes from an aging evangelical minister, however, another term should be used...."BS".

Very nice blog you have here. I like reading political blogs for some reason. Anyway, I have a site myself where people from around the world come and debate on popular issues. I feel as if this will give citizens some form of power, letting their voices be heard.

I'd like to exchange links with you to help spread some traffic around between each other. If you'd like to, please leave a comment under our "Compadres" page when you've added our link and we'll return the favor.

Until then, keep up the good work.
