Pat Robertson blames the catastrophic earthquake that killed millions in Haiti to a “Pact with the Devil.”
Personally, I’m not a religious person, though I do completely respect people from all walks of life and for whatever your beliefs may be. In fact, some of my best friends are devout religious people.
But, when I hear things like this, it just really disappoints me. I think it’s really ignorant and inconsiderate to condemn a country to being minions of the devil just because they do not practice the same religion as you.
What’s even more disgusting to me is probably the thousands of people who listen to guys like Pat Robertson and eat up every word he spits out without ever thinking on their own.
People like Pat Robertson should be very careful with their words. One single thought they have can influence thousands and even millions.
I can guarantee you all that Haiti did not sign any pact with the devil (I’ve tried doing this and the devil seems to never show up to our meetings). So instead, hopefully this just brings more awareness to different cultures and religions.
Haiti still needs your help.
If you want to help, I found this blog with more info on different ways you can help out the people in Haiti– http://www.gadling.com or you can also go to http://www.yele.org which is a grassroots movement that builds global awareness for Haiti of which Wyclef Jean works closely with.
Positive thoughts out to all the millions affected in Haiti.
