CBN's Pat Robertson Blames Haiti Earthquake On "A Pact With The Devil", But Also Deploys Operation Blessing To Haiti To Help With Recovery

Reverend Pat Robertson is under fire again - this time for mouthing off about the Haiti earthquake. During an appearance on the Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN), he attributed the earthquake to an alleged "pact with the devil" the country's founders made in order to successfully throw out their French overlords and become independent. The segment was captured on video and is presented below:

Specifically, Robertson said on the 700 Club, "Something happened a long time ago in Haiti, and people might not want to talk about it...They (the Haitians) were under the heel of the French...and they got together and swore a pact to the devil. They said 'We will serve you'...and so, the devil said 'Okay, it's a deal' and kicked the French out".

Robertson went on to note that though Haiti shares the same island of Hispaniola with the Dominican Republic, it remains desperately poor while its neighbor is prosperous, healthy and full of resorts. "[Haitians] need to have a great turning to God, and out of this tragedy, I'm optimistic something good may come," Robertson said.

According to Dr. Jean R. Gelin, the satanic pact allegedly took place at Bois-Caïman near Cap-Haïtien on August 14, 1791 during a meeting organized by several slave leaders, under [Dutty] Boukman’s leadership, before launching what would become Haiti’s Independence War. This brutal period lasted 13 years until the last survivors of the French expeditionary forces, dispatched to Saint-Domingue with the sole purpose to re-establish slavery, were allowed by Dessalines to leave the island and return to Napoleon. Those who made it safely to France wrote and reported about the utmost bravery and supreme courage of Haiti’s indigenous army. But Dr. Gelin presents evidence which tends to dismiss this story as little more than a fantasist opinion that ultimately dissipates upon closer examination. Nevertheless, it should also be noted that voodoo has been quite popular in Haiti throughout it's existence; many Christians consider voodoo to be devil worship.

Naturally, left-wing critics lashed out at Pat Robertson. "Go to hell Pat Robertson - and the sooner the better," Rev. Paul Raushenbush, a so-called "Baptist minister" and a religion editor at the Huffington Post, wrote. "Your 'theological' nonsense is revolting. Don't speak for Haiti - and don't speak for God. Haiti is suffering a catastrophe and you offer silliness at best and racism at the worst." And Ari Rabin-Havt, vice-president of communications and research at Media Matters said "Pat Robertson's bizarre and offensive comments come at a time of horrific human suffering...They represent right-wing media figures' willingness to use any tragedy to forward its own agenda."

But what none of them bothered to consider or report - which they would have found out if they had done their homework - is that Pat Robertson has also deployed teams from Operation Blessing International to Haiti to assess the country's recovery needs in preparation for a subsequent deployment of appropriate relief supplies and personnel. Furthermore, Operation Blessing is specifically soliciting donations for Haitian relief from the public HERE. Operation Blessing was originally set up by Pat Robertson in 1978.

Once again, the left has displayed its endemic anti-Christian bigotry for all the world to see. Only a raving lunatic would actually believe that Pat Robertson really thinks Haiti "deserved" an earthquake because of some "pact with the devil" or "voodoo".


  1. Pat Robertson is one of the worst race-mixers around. He started out by renouncing his own father, A. Willis Robertson, for being a segregationist. Then, he peppered his digs with Negroes and, especially, miscgenationists. His hair-stylist is a white-woman, married to a Negro. His chauffeur is a Negro, married to a white woman. His long-time TV-host was a white man married to a Negress. And on and on. I wrote him and objected, one time, and he wrote back and told me that I should support mixing in my church. His lawyer is Jay Seculow, a Jew, who tries to sucker Christians to support Israel, as well as integration. 'Nuff said.

  2. The Africans in Haiti massacred the whites. Had they not done so, there would be whites around to help them. Kind of like killing the goose that laid the golden egg. Since they killed all the whites, they turn to us for help. Whether it is God punishing them or the chickens coming home to roost, they deserve nothing whatsoever from us -- except for their ilk in Miami to be shipped back to them.

  3. As a Christian, I found Robertson's comments quite distrtressing. The fact that he's sending money is good; the fact that he comes off as a crazy person undeermines his message. It's not that people are ignoring his monetary contribution, it's that his mouth is controversial, and controversy has always sold. aspect

  4. what do you expect from this old worn whore for the Israeli Bolsheviks
    he packs their water and washes Jew feet daily so he can lick them clean.
    he should call himself rabbi Robertson.

  5. America is being hijacked by a group of religious fanatics called Zionists.

    It is essential that every American read the articles in the two part series titled: Zionist Terrorism Defined. This is a movement that is quickly forcing the world into a nuclear confrontation and that is the intended goal of these terrorists.

    The Apocalypse is the goal of the Christian Right such as pat Robertson in America and they are working diligently to destroy democracy and turn the United States into a Zionist Theocracy intent on setting the global stage for the Second Coming of Jesus.

    Both articles contain a list of sources and reading materials for further research and the two part series can be accessed at the following url:

    It's time to re-claim North America from the Zionist fanatics and terrorists using their strange Gods and religious texts to justify war, genocide, imperialism, racism, domination, oppression and nuclear war.
