Pat Robertson Says Earthquake Punishment for Haiti’s ‘Pact with the Devil’

January 14, 2010 /EIN PRESSWIRE/ One-time presidential candidate and evangelist Pat Robertson blamed the earthquake in Haiti on a pact with the devil that the Hatians made while under French colonial rule.

An influential figure in the Conservative Christian movement, Robertson opines that a deal with the devil is what helped the people of the small island nation free themselves from the colonial rule of the French. This earthquake, he believes, is retribution for the pact.

Robertson is no stranger to making such inflammatory statements, but does he genuinely represent his followers, conservatives whose votes are often heavily courted?
