My Message to Pat Robertson: Please Stop Talking!!!

‘They Have Been Cursed’: Pat Robertson Says Haiti ‘Swore a Pact to the Devil’
I have never, ever been a fan of Pat Robertson and this latest incident is exactly the reason why. When there is a natural disaster and thousands of people have lost loved ones, their homes and all their worldly possessions you don't say cruel things that you have no way of KNOWING.

For one thing, "the judgment on a whole country" mentality is an Old Testament way of thinking. Second, Robertson has no way of knowing what the reason for the disaster is. Third, his comments are the opposite of compassion, mercy and love which is what God would ask Christians to show.

Ways to help those in Haiti:

~~Samaritan's Purse is a phenomenal organization run by Franklin Graham. The outreach and help his organization provides to people all over the world is incredible.

~~K-Love has a list of 6 different organizations that are helping in Haiti

~~Baptist Global Response, is an outreach of the Southern Baptists
