In case you didn't think the Haitians have suffered enough already, along comes God's self-appointed spokesman, Pat Robertson, to pile on to their miseries with some divine retribution.
This is not Robertson's first foray into rubbing it in, evangelical-style. Remember when he and Jerry Falwell--working as a tag-team--said New York City deserved 9/11 because of all the depravity committed within its borders?
The holy man's claim that the Haitians made a deal with the devil a couple of hundred years ago to rid themselves of the French would be comic relief if it weren't in such poor taste, especially at this time.
It would be easy to dismiss this charlatan, except that many people look to him for guidance on what to think, a lot like the way people look to Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and Glenn Beck for the same.
Maybe they're all the same people, so hopefully the harm Robertson does will be minimal.
