Idiot.

Yeah. It's a one liner, and I apologize.

He's an idiot.

I just saw this a minute ago, Jake. The man's beyond idiotic. I recommend the Red Cross for anyone wanting to send donations as they have a strong ethos of non-partisan-ship and no connection with religion. Haiti fascinates me and I know I shall visit there one day. I created a ten part undergraduate course on its culture as the final project of my Adult Education teaching diploma and had lots of fun drinking rum to the loa - with interesting results.

If Robertson suggested that September 11th was caused by sinning Americans he'd be crucified (so to speak :P )

But since Haiti isn't a predominatly Christian country they must've been punished with an Earthquake for breaking the first commandment! Makes perfect sense :P .

Robertson was sitting next to the Devil when the all the Haitians in that country attended that one town hall meeting and swore their pact. That's how he can quote the words exchanged.
True Story.

If he was preaching on a street corner his vile hatred and lies, you would just ignore him and walk on by. Since he is on television, people think what he says must be true.

Dumb Fucking Sheep.

I just love it!

We do have the craziest Xtians here in America. The Haitians made a Voodoo pack with Satan and he has come to collect. Just awesome. Seriously, you just can't make up this sort of nuttery.

He just wants people to pay attention to him. So he says idiotic things that will get the spot line him for a little why. Still an idiot though.

That Falwell article is so depressing.

JERRY FALWELL: And, I know that I'll hear from them for this. But, throwing God out successfully with the help of the federal court system, throwing God out of the public square, out of the schools. The abortionists have got to bear some burden for this because God will not be mocked. And when we destroy 40 million little innocent babies, we make God mad. I really believe that the pagans, and the abortionists, and the feminists, and the gays and the lesbians who are actively trying to make that an alternative lifestyle, the ACLU, People For the American Way -- all of them who have tried to secularize America -- I point the finger in their face and say "you helped this happen."

No bloody wonder the world is becoming secularized, with bullshit like this coming out of the mouths of Christians.

I can honestly see how anyone could see pictures of aborted fetuses and be disgusted, but blaming pagans, abortionists, feminists, gays, lesbians and the guy that often short-changes you in the 7-11 for something horrible like September 11th is disgracful.

But then again, Falwell is so far into his little box that of course he's going to blame everyone outside of the box for setting it on fire.

Yeah... his box IS pretty little. It's a coffin. He died in May of 2007. Wonder why the hell he took so long.

Come to think of it, I do remember hearing about 'The Larry Flynt Guy' dying.

I certainly didn't feel like mourning at the time and I'm MUCH less likely to do it now that I've read that bullshit article.

Actually, Haiti is 80% Catholic, and its residents are fervently religious.

The 7.0 quake was bad enough, but then the 14 4.0 and up aftershocks is what really fucked it over. Rescue workers weren't able to reach the wounded and trapped for fear of having buildings that would further deteriorate when they were inside. That's going to account for the majority of the fatalities, those who weren't able to be rescued after the initial quake. What a terrible way to die, trapped between chunks of concrete, with broken bones and punctured organs, when you know there are people out there who are too afraid to get in and pull you out.

I've never heard of such a devastating quake, with so many aftershocks of that magnitude. Poor bastards.

Robertson’s and Falwell’s sentiments echo those of the people at the church where I grew up. Whenever the topic was about how good Americans had it, America was said to be “blessed by God”. Whenever the topic was about how bad Americans had it, America was said to be “tested and/or judged by God”. Nothing just happened because shit happens. Nothing happened because people and societies do stupid things. God always had something to do with it.

Robertson is a religious politician (the fact that he ran for president in the '80's is not lost on me). He can’t help people simply because it’s a nice thing to do. Everything is a sales pitch. It’s sickening.
