    Racist. Hateful. Xenophobic. Cruel.

    Why do people give this man air time? This is so horribly insensitive to people who are experiencing a devastating tragedy. Pat Robertson is the definition of “un-Christian.”

  2. TANK says

    Just another evil religious man hobnobbing with the likes of charles taylor and robert mugabe while victim blaming innocents killed for natural disasters. Pure evil. This lunatic should be selling pencils out of a paper cup.

  3. latebrosus says

    I was going to facetiously ask how the religious zealots would read this disaster, but this is jaw-droppingly unbelievable, not to mention reprehensible. I suppose he’ll just hold tight to the money in his own coffers, then?

    No one should be surprised with this lout’s comments.

    What alarms me, however, is how many people agree with so many of his views.

    But, whether we like him or not, Americans have the constitutional freedoms of religion and speech.

    I keep expecting Ashton Kutcher to run out from behind Pat Robertson’s desk, give him a high five, and tell us all we’ve been punked. Maybe they’re saving the big moment for his funeral?

  6. Sean R says

    Another bigoted gobshite. I’m still puzzled why Americans tolerate these idiots on national television and actually send them money. It’s just a perversion of free speech, isn’t it?

  7. TANK says

    You’re goddamn right americans have the right to free speech. And that goes both ways. I can criticize his malicious evil beliefs as loudly and as hatefully as I wish to…because I’m an american, we have free speech. I hope he dies real soon..and slowly…and painfully.

  8. John says

    It is like the man is some sort of two-dimensional super villain from a Saturday Morning cartoon. He even spouts off transparent, idiotic, and incoherent dialogue designed to show off how evil he really is. If I didn’t know Robertson was dead serious about all of this, I would be laughing at how outrageous it is.

    “Silly African slaves, fighting against white people angers God. Everybody knows that.”

  9. Alex Parrish says

    Why does this A** get any press coverage anyway? Oh — yeah! He’s the anti-pope — the devil incarnate on Earth; no wonder he knows about the ‘pact with the devil.”

  10. Rodney Wollam says

    I’m not surprised with this one either.
    This is the same man who blamed Katrina on the people living there and God sent us 9/11 because homosexuals were getting too many rights in America.

  11. walter says

    this man should go into a corner and die he has consistenjtly taken advantage of natural
    disaster to push his demented views of the world what ever happened to the term god is love is he only for pat robertson vision of love

    Pat Robertson thinks that Haiti is poverty stricken (and earthquake-stricken) because the country made a deal with Satan to help them overthrow the French.

    Back in May, the Times Online provided some slightly better insight into Haiti’s past. Beyond a vague assumption that Imperialism had probably screwed Haiti somehow, I didn’t know much about the country’s history. Reading this story has been nothing short of nauseating.

    Summary: Haiti was forced to pay France for its freedom. When they couldn’t afford the ransom, France (and other countries, including the United States) helpfully offered high-interest loans. By 1900, 80% of Haiti’s annual budget went to paying off its “reparation” debt. They didn’t make the last payment until 1947. Just 10 years later, dictator François Duvalier took over the country and promptly bankrupted it, taking out more high-interest loans to pay for his corrupt lifestyle. The Duvalier family, with the blind-eye financial assistance of Western countries, killed 10s of thousands of Haitians, until the Haitian people overthrew them in 1986. Today, Haiti is still paying off the debt of an oppressive dictator no one would help them get rid of for 30 years.

    The rest of the world refuses to forgive this debt.

    So, in a way, maybe Robertson is right. Haiti is caught in a deal with the devil, and the devil is us.

    After all the foot in mouth idiocy from this asshole and his ilk. After having been called out so many times, wouldn’t you think a man that old might have learned to shut the fuck UP?

    And who is that hapless moron nodding at what he condescendingly says to her?

    Jesus Christ!

  15. Bitch, please! says

    Does this damned and hating motherfucker go around and burn crosses on people’s yards on his nights off? This shit hole is the most hateful asshole in the world–how is he stll able to be on the air? it just goes to show that there are a lot more supporters of hatemongers than it is on record. How else can that turd, phelps afford to go around the country and do what he does?

  16. zinc alloy says

    It’s disturbing that in the 21st century, people still listen to and believe the inane ramblings of people like Pat Robertson. Devo were right; society is devolving.

  17. walter says

    his right wing church owns the network and he and all the rest of the right nut jobs
    get do all this on the back of the American people remember they don’t pay taxes this is the same way the the catho;ic church has money to give to defeat peoples rights. tax the shit out of these fucken idiots

  18. says

    one of the reasons i had to stop believing in god is because he/she/it stopped all the “smoting”!

    if there really is a god, Robertson needs to be smited AND fast!

    he IS the devil.

  19. Pat_My_Balls says

    Pat Robertson is a Freak!!!

    He has no concept of real life. All he knows is the next handout from his constituency. You are the monster!!!! Not him!!!!!

  20. ventura says

    i hope they burry this asshole ALIVE! or that a bldg collapses on him, lets see if his GOD saves him, hes such a coward he will summon the DEVIL to help him!

    After a little digging on the supposed Haitian “pact with the devil”, I came up with several articles on the subject. Apparently there IS a story about such an evil deal, but it’s clouded in doubt and lack of proof. Even if it is possible that there might be some truth to the tale, it seems that it wasn’t the entire country making the deal, but, rather a small Haitian group.

    Here’s some of what I found at:

    http://toppayingideas.com/blog/tag/haiti-devil/

    “According to some sites online, the Haitians made a 200-year pact with the Devil in order to gain their independence. Although this information goes back to 2004, when people feared Aristide would make a new pact, the truth is most info comes from Christian and evangelist sites.

    Haiti was declared the first in January 1804 the first independent black republic, and in Port-au-Prince a statue of a pig was erected to commemorate the “Boukman Contract”.
    This is the name given to the infamous contract made with the devil. On 14 August 1971, a doctor known as Boukman (nobody knew his real name) gathered many slaves to perform a voodoo ritual. They grabbed a pig and sacrificed him, drinking his blood and agreeing to serve the spirit of the islands for 200 years to be free.

    On August 22nd, the slaves began the war for independence setting on fire the Northern Plain and taking revenge to plantation owners. The war lasted many years against not only the French but also the Spaniards and the English until they ended up with victory in 1804.”

    In our country where freedom of speech is held sacred, it is wrong to try and censor ignorant people such as Pat Robertson, but at the same time his viewers should take his statements with a grain of salt.

  22. UFLYGUY says

    Even if (right) they made a pact with the devil for 200 years, they gained their independence in 1804. That means the pact would have ended in 2004. So what’s the excuse now?

  23. hinbww says

    I was trying to think of a animal that he is like but all animals have brains he does not. I have NEVER liked this so called man if that is what he thinks he is. He thinks he is a Christian but he is no Christian I know of. God is of love he is not. He is a very low class or white trash.

  24. Lia says

    Robertson makes me truly glad I left the Christian faith years ago. I wouldn’t consider myself even human if I lacked the humanity and compassion that he lacks.
    I’ve since reconsidered my move away from the Christian church. That is until I heard this. I’ll never go back.

  25. El Brucio says

    Wow. I’ve never understood how this particularly evil branch of Christianity manages to attract so many adherents.

    In their twisted universe, bad things happen to others because they’ve angered god. When bad things happen to them, it’s a test of their “faith”.

  26. joe says

    Robertson says the devil said “OK”, to some sort of pact?” Does he have a direct line to old scratch, beelzebub, satan himself? Sounds like he is hearing voices and needs some help with his schizoid thinking. There is medication for this. Scary thought… millions follow him blindly and contribute to his coffers so that he can live the life of luxury. The kind of life that Jesus modeled. Scary thought …he actually ran for president. Pat go get some help.

  27. Darrell says

    Pat knows all about the pact, HE IS THE ONE who signed it. he is the personification of the devil. the man eats and shits EVIL

    I suggest that everyone hits the CBN networks 700 Club website and tell him to shut the fuck up,I did and it felt fantastic give him a tast of his own medicine. Give him a taste of what free speech is all about, we can be louder than him, what about companies that sponsor the show the must be revolted as well (Hopefully) llet them know what people think.
