CaribWorldNews, NEW YORK, NY, Thurs. 14, 2010: `The 700 Club`s` controversial host, Pat Robertson, is blaming a `curse` for Haiti`s current plight.
The televangelist Robertson said the tragedy in Haiti is a result of them being `cursed` for signing a pact with the devil. Robertson`s comments were made on Wednesday during his CBN broadcast.
`Something happened a long time ago in Haiti, and people might not want to talk about it,` he said. `They were under the heel of the French … and they got together and swore a pact to the devil. They said, `We will serve you if you`ll get us free from the French.` `True story. And the devil said, `OK, it`s a deal,“ Robertson said. `Ever since, they have been cursed by one thing after another.`
He added that Haitians need to have a `great turning to God.`
Haiti was once a colony of France, which left in 1825.
