(Newser) – Well, this is helpful: Pat Robertson says Haiti's got itself to blame for the earthquake because of a "pact to the devil" it made long ago. "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.'" The devil delivered, and Haitians have been "cursed" ever since, says Robertson. "True story."

The reverend, who famously blamed liberals and gays in the immediate aftermath of 9/11, sees an upside to Haiti's current misery, notes the Daily News. Islanders "need to have a great turning to God, and out of this tragedy, I'm optimistic something good may come."

I admire your courage to speak for The One True God Rev. Robertson. Please go on. No Weapon formed against you shall prosper. It is said the so many people heard you and do not believe. Their hearts have been hardened. They are on their way to destruction.

You have been insulting since the first post in this thread and backpedaled at every turn. I was not insulting you; I was merely making an observation.

Dolt? And then it devolved into insults. Pretty much the end of any discussion. Good night.
