The devil doesn’t exist anymore. I got rid of him.
I say that, and people will call me crazy. Yet Pat Robertson can go on TV and claim that Haiti suffered a horrible earthquake because its people made a pact with the devil.
And people believe him.
If you want to watch the video for yourself, you can do so here.
The earthquake in Haiti is a tragic event that has claimed an untold number of lives. The people there need all the compassion and love they can get, and I for one am trying to send what I can to them.
The people in Haiti do not need to be told they brought this among themselves. Maybe a reader can clarify for me, but I don’t see how Robertson can call himself a man of God while claiming that humans deserved this earthquake by rejecting God and accepting the devil. That’s an arrogant claim that degrades the whole of humanity, not just those who are suffering in Haiti at this very moment. I don’t believe for a second that God would unleash his wrath on one of the poorest countries on Earth.
I contend that God doesn’t even have a wrath. God has love, for all of humanity.
Robertson’s latest claim is a stunning and sickening example of what is wrong with religion, and only proves that a more compassionate, loving form of religion is due on this planet.
Even the parts ravaged by poverty, death and earthquakes.
Love… to all.
