Pat Robertson is the most despicable person EVER

I think we all know about the horrible events which have happened in Haiti. The whole country has been decimated by a 7.0 Earthquake. Relief is being sent from all over the world. From the United States to China, which is on the other side of the planet. We all look at these events and want to do something to help. At least I'd like to think so. Well except for a selfish few who are more interested in pursuing their own agenda.

As everyone else with a heart would look at a way to help the people of Haiti, Pat Robertson talks how this disaster is God punishing innocent people for something that supposedly happened in the 19th century. He talks about the people of Haiti making a pack with the devil over 100 years ago. Now even if this was true, which I doubt, because my God is a loving God who loved us so much that he would send his only son down to earth to free us from our sins, and yes I'm Catholic. God would not punish the decadents of people who have allegedly made a pact with the devil.

Now I'm not the most religious person out there. I don't pray much, but I do try to do some things to help mankind. I currently make donations from both jobs for different charities, and I can see myself making a donation to the Red Cross for the Haiti Relief effort, but I'm not going to go on and comments online, or on television about how the people of Haiti deserved the disaster that has fallen on them, and it's not like life was good there beforehand.

What really engages me is how Pat Robertson can claim to be a man of God and yet spit out this venom towards innocent people who have nothing. How can he claim to be a man of God? Quite simply, I think he can't. I feel that he's a fake. A fraud. He is not a man of God. All he cares about is himself and his selfish agenda, and one day, and it will happen soon, he will have to answer to God for what he has said.


I'm reasonably confident that Jesus would not approve of his remarks.

Now to be fair I've heard (but cannot confirm, that his charity is donating aid and money to the people of Haiti (I can't find a quote, but I've heard it on TV news coverage), but I'm sure that someone else doing, but a least the money people donate to him is going to a good cause.

I want to end with this. We are now in the 21st Century, and there is no longer a need for the hateful speech that people like Pat Robertson, and Osama Bin Ladin (yes I'm putting them in the same group). Your hate disguised as religious rhetoric has no place in this world. Go away somewhere and shut the fuck up.

I couldn't agree more! Add to that nonsense the rantings that the New Orleans disaster and the Aids virus are God's way of cleansing...Just shaking my head when I hear people talk like that... Maybe we aren't haven't come so far in evolution as we thought.
