Evangelist Robertson: Haiti Made ‘pact’ with Satan

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on January 14, 2010

Celebrated US televangelist Pat Robertson, a former candidate for the US presidency, affirmed that the people of Haiti once made a “pact” with Satan since gaining their independence from France in the late 1700s. Reacting to the tragic earthquake, which may have claimed as many as 500,000 lives, Robertson mused that the tremor may be a “blessing in disguise” for the poorest nation in the Americas.

Robertson, host of the ‘700 Club’ television broadcast and a multimillionaire, said that Haiti has been “cursed by one thing after another” since they “swore a pact to the devil.”

“Something happened a long time ago in Haiti and people might not want to talk about,” Robertson said.

My heart goes out to the suffering Haitians!

    So what was Robertson referring to? The theory that Haiti is a nation built on a pact with the devil has circulated on a number of websites, each tracing back to an apocryphal tale of Haitian voodoo priests sacrificing a pig and drinking its blood in 1791 in order to secure Satan’s aid in expelling the French occupation. In return, the priests are said to have promised Haiti to Satan for the next 200 years. The French were soon beat back, and in 1804, Haiti became an independent nation. But even if you believe the story (something many historians doubt), Satan’s lease on the tiny island nation should have expired in 1991.
