Pat Robertson Bad Mouths Haiti

Pat Robertson, the loud-mouthed American televangelist said that Haitians made a "pact to the Devil" in order to liberate themselves from the French and, along with their voodoo practices, indirectly attributed the earthquake to the consequences of the Haitian people being "cursed".

Why would kill people like the Archbishop of Port-au-Prince or those who were trying to make a difference there such as Yvonne Martin, a nurse who was helping with mobile clinics?

We know that the earthquake was caused by pressure buildup from strike-slip fault that is 10 km under the island. It was not attributed to God, Satan or by any post hoc argument.
