"Something happened a long time ago in Haiti, and people might not want to talk about it. They were under the heel of the French ... and they got together and swore a pact to the devil. They said, 'We will serve you if you'll get us free from the French.' True story. And the devil said, 'OK, it's a deal.' Ever since, they have been cursed by one thing after another."

-- Religious right douchebag Pat Robertson on the earthquake in Haiti on his 700 Club show. For once the gays weren't responsible for a natural tragedy. Apparently, our sins are good enough to bring about a hurricane or twelve, but you've got to make a deal with the devil to get to earthquake level.
