Just wondering if any of Pat Robertson’s followers are asking how he knows the details of a pact made with the devil. I mean, wouldn’t he need an inside source to get that information? So, Pat, better lay off talking about this kind of deal, not just that it’s just bad form at a time like this, but, well, people might start wondering about your associations.
As, you may know, shortly after falling off his rocker*, the minister offered an explanation for the earthquake in Haiti:
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 … 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.’
Now, Pat wasn’t around two hundred years ago when the Haitians threw off French tyranny. So, I don’t think the Haitians around back then would be able to inform him. And when I studied Haitian history (for a paper on the Vodou mythology) and didn’t find any details of such a pact. And, well, since it’s not in history books, the only way Pat could know is if . . .
*Yeah, I know, it’s been happening a lot lately. Someone needs get him that model with a seat belt.
