Pat Robertson is personally responsible for every death in
Haiti over the past eleven days. He admitted exactly that
when he said he knew that the Devil
had put a curse on the island.
Being a close, personal friend of God, of whom all things
are possible, old Pat could easily have made the very reasonable
request that He evict Satan post-haste from that
rock in the middle of the Atlantic before something awful
But he didn't.
And the reason is clear. It's much harder to actually work
for change and make it happen than it is to sit on the sidelines
and act like
a smug douche-nozzle when any unfortunate event transpires.
Robertson acted exactly like such a nozzle on 9-11, blaming
the catastrophe on gays, abortionists, the ACLU and the
People for the American
(It was more likely the fault of UNOCAL and the Mossad.)
As for Katrina, Robertson said it was God's judgment on
the people of New Orleans, a pronouncement with which he
seemed strangely content.
So according to Pat, God kills and Satan kills, it's pretty
much all the same and there's just nothing Mr. Robertson
say "Ha-ha! Told ya so!" afterwards and then ask
of money so he can talk to God about, oh, I don't know,
In truth, Mr. Robertson has no more ability to converse with
God than your average pekingese. He is a deranged, manipulative
lunatic preying on the weak and the scared. It's people like
him who make me fervently wish there really was a Hell
because the gates would swing open quite wide and with great
fanfare when he finally snuffs it.
And the sooner the better.
