Tragically, many evangelical Christians in Haiti may actually, in their own extreme confusion and suffering and desperation, believe that God is punishing them.Oops, apparently there are plenty of Christians that fit into Robertson's definition that are suffering today. What kind of God is that? Is this really a message that is likely to increase market share? One could say that God works in mysterious ways, but to blame the people paying such a high price for the sin of being born in Haiti (a high price even before this week) is, well, inhumane.
But then again, this is nothing new. Pat Robertson is eager to place blame in strange places after bad things happen. He joined Jerry Falwell in blaming the ACLU, gays and lesbians, abortionists, and others for 9/11
I guess I will always be astounded that folks like this get the attention they do. And I guess I am abetting in this crime.
