None...absolutely none of these little Haitian children "made a pact with the devil" that would bring poverty, disease and destruction to their country.
A few days ago, a prominent Christian evangelist (Pat Robertson) was noted as saying that a long time ago the country of Haiti had "made a pact with the devil". This comment came about during discussions of the recent earthquake and devastation in Haiti.
Tonight, at a local church we were visiting, during the preacher's prayer, he insinuated the same thing. Then went on to ask God to bless them anyway.
Why? Why is it during times of great devastation and tragedy Christian leaders feel the need to blame these things on certain groups of people? We had the same thing happen after Katrina. Apparently, Katrina occurred because of the sins of homosexuality and sins of New Orleans!
No! No! No! How can these folks represent the body of Christian believers and say these kind of things? What are they thinking? Where are their hearts? Do they have one?
I am unable to say at this time all I want to say on this issue and maybe it is best I be quiet.
For an excellent post about a special young woman who literally gave her life showing young children in Haiti the love of God, I highly recommend you visit "It's Just So Homer" over at http://www.grayquillmusings.com/.
