Christians, also, can be upset with Robertson

We have been assaulted again by the apostate, Pat Robertson. People in Haiti were dying as he spoke words of judgement and condemnation. In case you missed it, here is a good place to read about it and watch video.

Personally, my stomach is too delicate to watch the video:

Pat Robertson: Haiti ‘Cursed’ Since Pact with the Devil
– Sarah Pulliam Bailey

I am a very poor Christian, but I can describe the attitude of decent Christians toward Robertson’s comments. His comments presume that all Haitians, past to present, are heathen (probably adherents to Voodoo) and complicit in the Deal with the Devil. Such a monolithic view is required to discount the presence of many Haitians, past and present, who are main-line Christians. Their presence is discounted by Robertson because, according to his charismatic, power-of-prayer religious views, the prayer of faithful Christians is a joy to God and efficacious in seeking His intervention. He has either accused all Haitians of being heathen, or he has asserted that the prayers of vast numbers of Haitians (and other Christians around the world!) are powerless to protect Christians from 19th-Century devil worshippers’ mistakes.

The Apostle Peter only denied Christ three times.

How many times is this for Robertson?
