Pat Robertson off his meds again: blames Haiti's earthquake on Satanic rituals and 'awfully spicy' Shrimp Gumbo recipe

This is just flat-out embarrassing.

The Rev. Pat Robertson is offering his own absurd explanation for why a quake hit Haiti: Many years ago, the island's people "swore a pact to the the devil... 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'."

Robertson continued: "True story. And so the devil said, 'OK, it's a deal.' They kicked the French out. The Haitians revolted and got themselves free. Ever since, they have been cursed by one thing after the other."

Pat Robertson needs to be wheeled back into the Alzheimer's Ward for some Clockwork Orange-style rehab.

I saw a clip of Keith Olbermann going off on Robertson. You know it's bad when you agree with Olbermann.

Of course, he included Rush Limbaugh in his tirade. So I can't give KO any love over this.

It is possible that the Haitians are a godless, devil worshipping culture and Pat Robertson is right, right? Possible? Doesn't mean we can't feel their pain, but it's not the first time an immoral or amoral population was smited.

You'd wouldn't do it would you?
I wouldn't either.
People who do that have a very difficult time getting free.

Lets prayfor preacher Pat Robertson So that he can come out from such mind. We must pray for Haitian So that they over such a massive disaster.

I think those who want to be considered prophets should follow all of the rules. If they've ever falsely prophesied, they're not of God.

Best bet for all of us is to avoid pride (hubris) and pray for others to be saved both physically and spiritually...
