Rev. Pat Robertson says that people of Haiti swore a pact with the deveil

The post below was the first post which I placed on a new blog I started entitled "Moral Deficiency Disorder". I have decided to close that blog and move similar topics to this blog. They will be tagged with the label "moral deficit disorder".

Pat Robertson says that Haiti swore a pact with the devil and so have been cursed.

It is interesting language and metaphor that Robertson uses. Robertson does a grave disservice to people who are suffering from a natural disaster. What kind of a so-called Christian minister, blames the victims for their own suffering?

It is one thing for Rev. Robertson to have this personal view, it is quite another when he influences his own television audience with this racism and bigotry.

Unitarian Universalists believe in the free and responsible search for truth and meaning. The kind of religosity that Pat Robertson preaches which demonizes people is reprehensible from a Unitarian Universalist perspective.

Who are the people that support this televangelism ministry?
