I guess this is what he is referring to...

TV preacher Pat Robertson said the quake in Haiti happened because the Haitians had made a deal with the DEVIL to gain their independence (in 1804).

I guess this is what he is referring to--Haiti is the only nation to have achieved independence by slave revolution.

Historical note: Many of the French colonists in Haiti fled with their slaves to Cuba. From there, they went to New Orleans, helping to ensure the city's French heritage.

Pat Robertson is a nut. He talks just because he enjoys listening to himself.

I understood what the crazy-man was saying, but it was obvious he twisted a historical event around to fit his religious agenda.

So will the Saints lose to the Vikings because of this "Devil's Pact" now?

Foen -- I taught sports marketing for years, when I retired I lost interest in everything but Cardinal baseball -- I have met Bud Admans who owns the Titans.
