History Lesson for Pat Robertson

via Think Progress » Pat Robertson Cites Haiti’s Earthquake As What Happens When You ‘Swear A Pact To The Devil’.

To paraphrase Woody Allen, if Jesus heard this, He would never stop throwing up!

On the Rachel Maddow show last night, the Haitian ambassador provided a history lesson for Robertson and other false prophets.

The only thing I would add is by Robertson’s logic, both the American and French revolutions were a “deal with the Devil” as the Haitians used these countries’ concepts of universal human rights as the underpinning of their revolt.  [except, unlike the U.S.A., Haiti abolished slavery]
