Pat Robertson (watch the video):

"And you know Kristi, something happened a long time ago in Haiti and people might not want to talk about it. They were under the heel of the French, uh you know Napoleon the third and whatever. 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. True Story. And so the Devil said "OK, it's a deal." And they kicked the French out. You know, the Haitians revolted and got themselves free. But ever since they have been cursed by one thing after the other, desperately poor. That island is Hispaniola is one island. It's cut down the middle. On one side is Haiti, on the other side is the Dominican republic. Dominican Republic is prosperous, healthy, full of resorts, etc.. Haiti is in desperate poverty. Same island. Uh, they need to have, and we need to pray for them, a great turning to God and out of this tragedy. I'm optimistic something good may come."

I was waiting for Robertson to comment on this. I knew he couldn't resist. He's a sick, perverted person. I'm surprised he didn't blame it on homosexuals, like he does with most disasters that strike the US.
Who knows..I just wish the press would ignore him,but they won't.
I'd rather they didn't ignore him. No one advertises the moral bankruptcy of religious authority better than Pat Robertson; not even Fred Phelps.
Yes well the guy is clearly an arsehole and if he is saying that the island is poor because they revolted against the French and what they really should be doing to ensure happiness is working in the holiday resorts for the fat stupid Americans in their loud shirts and conspicious overconsumption, then the guy needs a bullet in the back of the head.
