And you know Christy, something happened a long time ago in Haiti and people might not want to talk about it. They were under the heel of the French, uh you know Napoleon the third and whatever. 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 so the Devil said OK it’s a deal. And they kicked the French out. You know, the Haitians revolted and got themselves free. But ever since they’ve been cursed by one thing after the other desperately poor. That island is Hispaniola is one island. It’s cut down the middle. On one side is Haiti on the other side is the Dominican republic. Dominican Republic is prosperous, healthy, full of resorts, etc.. Haiti is in desperate poverty. Same island. Uh, they need to have, and we need to pray for them a great turning to God and out of this tragedy. I’m optimistic something good may come but right now we’re helping the suffering people and the suffering is unimaginable.
Excuse me, one comment: Pat Robertson
is an insipid piece of trash obviously means well, so we shouldn’t be too mean to him. Oh, you can’t please everybody, so just go read Right Wing Watch’s compilation of Pat Robertson’s Greatest Hits. Included in the collection are the time he blamed gays for 9/11, the many times he said gays are going to hell, the time he blamed Ariel Sharon’s health problems on God’s displeasure with Israeli policy, and many, many more!
