Pat Robertson To Haiti: This Is All Your Fault!

Once again, in an effort to be "That Guy" (in terms of inappropriate comments) Pat Robertson weighs in on the tragic events in Haiti...

C'mon Son...

I will only respond to Pat Robertson's statements, by quoting a passage from the an authority that he claims to recognize containing the words of a man that he claims to represent:

As he went along, he saw a man blind from birth. His disciples asked him, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?”

“Neither this man nor his parents sinned,” said Jesus, “but this happened so that the work of God might be displayed in his life. As long as it is day, we must do the work of him who sent me. Night is coming, when no one can work. While I am in the world, I am the light of the world.”

Having said this, he spit on the ground, made some mud with the saliva, and put it on the man’s eyes. “Go,” he told him, “wash in the pool of Siloam” (this word means Sent). So the man went and washed, and came home seeing.

- John 9:1-6

*emphasis mine

My suggestion to Mr. Robertson would be to focus on helping the people of Haiti in their time of need (like Jesus tells us to do), instead of offering up bogus reasons for why this catastrophe has occurred in this small island nation (which he has a habit of doing every time there is a disaster anywhere). Yeah, I think that would be more helpful than trying to place blame on the very same people for whom you are asking for donations to provide aid.

Just sayin...
