I know we all have been praying for everyone in Haiti. The situation there is grave and we should all be giving a helping hand as best we can. For most of us, that means a financial donation to a reputable disaster relief organization (my favorite is Catholic Relief Services).
So it was with great horror that I saw what televangelist Pat Robertson had to say about the matter. The video of his comments are HERE.
The level of ignorance in his mind and the hate that seems to fill his heart is more than I can comprehend. And worse yet, people in this country actually listen to what this man says and believes it. On the other side, opponents of the faith point to men like Pat Robertson as the reason why our country should discard our Judeo-Chrisitian roots. He is wounding the Christian faith with his words. At this point all we can do is continue the work of our Lord Jesus Christ knowing that, in the end, all will be well.
Pray for the relief workers in Haiti. They have a difficult job in front of them.
And if you can, pray for the conversion of Pat Robertson's heart. He needs it as well.
