I guess I’m not the only one to wonder about Haiti. Right-wing televangelist Pat Robertson is apparently also wondering if Haiti is
cursed – the problem, though, is that Robertson thinks the country is literally cursed, as in condemned by God for its sins. The BBC quotes him:
They said, we will serve you if you will get us free from the French. True story. And so, the devil said, okay it’s a deal. . . . Ever since, they have been cursed by one thing after the other.
I’m quite impressed that Robertson was able to get access to Satan’s records on this issue; I was under the impression that use of the Infernal Archives normally required the forfeit of the researcher’s immortal soul. Perhaps Robertson would be willing to investigate the Adversary’s involvement with Molotov and Ribbentrop on his next trip down to the archives, since he’s already paid the price of admission...
