"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. You know, Napoleon III, or whatever. 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. True story. And so, the devil said, okay it's a deal."

While most people realize that Pat Robertson is a bigoted idiot, he has millions of followers who believe every word that he says. Robertson is spreading fear, hatred, and his own sense of self-righteousness. Instead of being compassionate and helping those in need, he is telling us that people deserve what they get. There are no victims, only sinners of some imagined past discretion that must be punished by a petty, vindictive deity.
