How about praying to your God that Pat Robertson goes directly to the Christian place they call HELL, and reserve for him the same punishment that Hitler gets in the film, "Little Nicky?"

Face facts. God enjoys men like him, and prospers them so they can spread what they do around. I've seen it well more than once with others. God and Jesus either dont exist, or laugh their rear ends off at the antics of truly good people screwed like a $2 hooker in a port town.

Because my thread got shut down for pointing out that Pat Robertson was telling the truth that at the birth of Haiti as a nation that they called upon voodoo spirits (devils) to aid them in their struggle to be free, and sealed with a ceremonial pact, I have posted my response here as I was directed to do. Let me point out that Pat was right in saying they did this thing at the start of their own revolution. That was what he was saying. His viewpoint, and mine, is that a nation who calls on the devil for help will not be blessed of God until it rejects such a plea. Haiti never did. Pat's comments were his own and based upon his beliefs. But what he said is written in the historical accounts for all to read. If you must hate him and his views, do so, but don't say they didn't call on their voodoo spirits and give a ceremony in which they made sacrifice is false. If you can prove they did not do it. do so.
Excerpts from sources:
" The Haitian Revolution "
" A slave rebellion of 1791 finally toppled the colony. Launched in August of that year, the revolt represented the culmination of a protracted conspiracy among black leaders. According to accounts of the rebellion that have been told through the years, François-Dominique Toussaint Louverture helped plot the uprising, although this claim has never been substantiated. Among the rebellion's leaders were Boukman, a maroon and voodoo houngan (priest); Georges Biassou, who later made Toussaint his aide; Jean-François, who subsequently commanded forces, along with Biassou and Toussaint, under the Spanish flag; and Jeannot, the bloodthirstiest of them all. These leaders sealed their compact with a voodoo ceremony conducted by Boukman in the Bois Cayman (Alligator Woods) in early August 1791. On August 22, a little more than a week after the ceremony, the uprising of their black followers began. "
" A brief history of voodoo in Haiti "
" Many years passed and the Vodou religion grew stronger among the people which led up to the events of August 1791 the day of one of the most important ceremonies in Vodou history. The Bwa Kayiman, as its known, was where the Haitian revolution began against the French over-rulers. The ceremony saw the spirit, Ezili Dantor, possess a priestess and receive a black pig as an offering, and all those present pledged themselves to the fight for freedom. After this revolution the world saw the first ever establishment of a black people's republic. Following this break of independence Vodou then began to cross the border into America, where it mostly affected the area of New Orleans as early as 1800. The practitioner responsible for this popularity was a famous Vodou Queen, Marie Laveau; however other forms. "

Turning to god? Over 80 percent in Haiti are Catholic and the majority of the rest are Protestant.
Regardless of what Robertson believes, Catholics are Christians.

Robertson is just being honest but you Americans - in your trenchant godlessness and outright atheism are too blinded to see and your ears are deaf to the "WORD" who is Jesus Christ...shame on you all and may God have mercy on this nation
Get a clue, get a life, get some common sense...get real. It's people like you that turned Christianity into a cult.
