Did Pat Robertson really just blame the Haitian people for the catastrophic earthquake that has potentially claimed 100,000 lives? Check out the clip below.

Evangelicalism’s crazy old uncle? Intoxicated by the power of his own TV cameras? Just speaking a word? No matter how you spin this one, there’s no getting around the fact that Robertson’s comments were inappropriate and lacked Christian compassion.

There may be a time and place to wax prophetic, but it certainly isn’t the day after an unspeakable tragedy affecting millions of impoverished people, on a Christian television broadcast seen all over the world. A Christian leader of Robertson’s influence should be rallying believers together to pray for Haiti, not cast judgment.
