Pat Robertson's Grotesque Insensitivity

robertson.jpgI would like to commend Rev. Barry Lynn of Americans United for Separation of Church and State for this press release in which he condemned Christian extremist Pat Robertson's "grotesque insensitivity" when discussing the disaster in Haiti.

Following the earthquake, Robertson stated that the people of Haiti "swore a pact to the devil" and have been "cursed" by his god. That is, they deserved the quake, according to Robertson.

Rev. Lynn was absolutely correct to call Robertson out on this, and I applaud his willingness to do so. I sincerely hope that many other Christians will follow his lead. Pat Robertson is a dangerous Christian extremist, and I join Rev. Lynn in denouncing him as such.
