    This comment Aus Desi ji took no time at all to come up. Pat Robertson made these remarks within less than 24 hours of the quake. The major news media picked it up and it caused a huge cry -- because Pat Robertson's chit is not clean. Moreover, every time there is a disaster he makes a similar comment. And the man has millions of followers, millions of dollars, as there are millions of people who feed on hatred. It is said that Jesus of Nazareth fed the multitudes with loaves and fish. Pat Roberson, follower of Jesus, feeds them hatred. Sometimes people would rather eat hatred.

    hmmm

    a very very rich man, who does not understand plate tectonics, casting judgement on the spirituality of a very very poor nation that has unfortunately been hit by a natural catastrophe.

    maybe jesus had a point when he said it will be difficult for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven...but you'll never hear Pat read these verses from the bible...hes too caught up in the medieval humbug of "pacts with the devil" ... Maybe when i visit Haiti they can show me the signed and notorized contract.

    nonsense.

    It is interesting too how convenient it is to forget history. Poverty stands in the way of recovery. Poverty contributed to the lack of resources today within the country of Haiti. But Haiti's poverty was even more entrenched because of policies in the 1950's and into the 70's when the US backed the corrupt Duvalier regime. Corruption, abuse of power, siphoning off aid for personal ends, and you get what you get. Foreign aid policy $$$$$$ depended on backing the Duvaliers, Father and Son, to ward off communist encroachments in the area. Later, US and World Bank policies $$$$$$ introduced the idea of turning Haiti into an export economy. This in turn lead to the abandonment of agriculture, followed by mass migration to towns for low-paying semi-skilled jobs in fledgling industries that never took off. Haiti's foreign debt accumulated under the Duvaliers was not forgiven.

    Thus we see millions of poor people massed in cities living in conditions of poverty that are hard to imagine in a country that has less than 40 years to create an infrastructure or stable economic base. They have been sitting ducks for natural disasters for years.

    And Pat Robertson blames it on a pact with the Devil :crazy::crazy::crazy: Not a devil but The Devil.

    P/S He probably thought the Duvaliers were the cat's pajamas.
