Threats and Hazards Pat Robertson has nothing left to offer any useful discourse
His tacit blame of the Haitian people for the tragic loss of life following the recent earthquake is beyond inexcusable. His twisted, stupid declaration that the people of Haiti brought the quake upon themselves by making a "pact to the devil" in order to obtain freedom many generations ago is ignorant and disgusting. The Red Cross reports that 50,000 people may have died, and poverty is undoubtedly to blame, as it always is when natural disasters cause mass casualties. Earthquakes kill lots of people when they strike poor places, and they kill comparatively few when they strike rich places. That much is not in dispute. But to claim that some "pact [with] the devil" is to blame is itself an act of evil.
