Please Donate to Haiti & Pat Robertson is Still Insane
Are we even surprised anymore? No? I didn't think so. I mean, Pat Robertson is such an outdated sort of person (I hesitated to use that last word there for him). He represents the archaic, brain-diseased model of our species that we have to move beyond, and for the most part we have succeeded in doing so.
Seriously, if you read that link, who can you think of that would actually say something this stupid and insensitive and insulting?
Something happened a long time ago in Haiti and people might not want to talk about...They were under the heel of the French, you know Napoleon the third and whatever. (edit: nice...you stay classy, Pat) And they got together and swore a pact to the devil. They said 'We will serve you if you will get us free from the prince.' True story. And so the devil said, 'Ok it’s a deal.' And they kicked the French out. The Haitians revolted and got something themselves free. But ever since they have been cursed by one thing after another...One thing I do love is the abject insanity of Robertson's assertion that an entire population of a country, as one, talked to the Devil - the DEVIL, mind you - and then says flippantly, "True story."
I guess to someone who believes in an invisible man in the sky, there's not too far to jump to reach SuperCrazyLand.
Please donate what you can to the relief effort in Haiti and ignore Pat Robertson in all his insane irrelevance until his, hopefully soon and painlessly in his sleep, death.
