You're the devil in disguise

To anyone who reads my posts you've seen the addendum at the bottom that says I cross post at SteveAudio. For the first time I'm cross posting a post from Steve of SteveAudio here. Hold your applause, just send money.

Google Pat Robertson today, and the top 2 auto-fills Google returns are "pat robertson haiti" & pat robertson haiti earthquake". Wonder why?

Well, Robertson has pissed into the punchbowl of decent people everywhere:
"Something happened a long time ago in Haiti and people might not want to talk about," Robertson said Tuesday.

"They were under the heel of the French, you know Napoleon the third and whatever. And they got together and swore a pact to the devil. They said 'We will serve you if you will get us free from the prince.' True story. And so the devil said, 'Ok it’s a deal.' And they kicked the French out. The Haitians revolted and got something themselves free. But ever since they have been cursed by one thing after another," Robertson said.

First, your history is wrong. Napolean Bonaparte, not 'Napolean the third and whatever' sent 20,000 French soldiers to retake the island after they wrote a new constitution. Problem was that yellow fever decimated the French army which was then beaten by Haitian forces. Satan had no part in this struggle. Napolean III wasn't even born until 1808, 6 years after the Hatian Revolution.

Second, what in Hell is wrong with you? I'm pretty sure Jesus, who you claim to worship and adore, wouldn't discuss the reason for the earthquake before wading in to help the poor Haitian people. And He might take issue with your bitching about it:
'I tell you the truth, when you did it to one of the least of these my brothers and sisters, you were doing it to me!'

So for the first time in 2010, I hereby award our Golden Douch award to Pat Robertson:

Sailor here, what SteveAudio said and some more links:

Oxfam-Earthquake hits Haiti – help urgently needed
I've worked with Oxfam before at benefits. They are among the best international charities I know of.

You want to volunteer, but not sure how? These people may be able to help.
I'm going to mostly ignore politics for the moment, except to point out the differences in response between Haiti and New Orleans.
- Haiti has 8 million people. New Orleans had 1/2 a million.
- Haiti is 700 miles to the east of the USA. New Orleans is in the USA.
- Haiti was struck by a natural disaster, and President Obama immediately responded. New Orleans was struck by a natural disaster and pResident Bush said 'heckuva job Brownie.'

The next time someone says there's no difference between Bush and Obama? You have my permission to set them straight.

Hey, if you want to award something "golden" to PR, then don't give him a golden douche, cause he'll just melt it down and cash it in!

Instead, you gotta' give him the "Golden Flow" award, and spontaniously rain it down on his pointy little head.

To paraphrase Samuel Jackson in "The Spirit," ain't it just plain damned weird how many of the biggest assholes, the most vile, despicable, biased, prejudiced, and thoroughly disgusting jerkoffs everywhere are "holy men" such as Pat Robertson?

Yet again another prime example of why I no longer believe in the phony constructs of evil men who call themselves religious while ignoring every single tenant of their alleged Lord and his son, Jesus Christ.

As a matter of principle I cannot and will not ever believe in bogus gods whom would allow so much suffering of the poor while accumulating the greatest monetary treasures ever know to man, not to sell and support the least of those amongst us, but to hoard, accumulating ever greater wealth by taking money from the poor in the guise of tithes, live in luxury, eat off silver plates, drink from golden chalices, and warm themselves by the fire after a most fulfilling dinner while all they have to do to even just LOOK at the least among us is to look out at the starving, ill, infirm, and poorest from the windows of their palaces to see them. There are none so blind as those who will not see.

I refuse to play along with their scams, lies, and phoniness; I am proud to be an atheist. No kind and just god would demand that men be "god-fearing."
