So If Haiti was Destroyed for Devil Worship, Was New Orleans Destroyed for Christian Worship?

"Something happened a long time ago in Haiti, and people might not want to talk about it," Robertson said. "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.'" Source CBS News

When it comes to God and Religion I get a little confused. I am just a simple man so I like to depend on the experts to let me know what I should believe. My faith gets a little shaky when I read about God smiting everyone in the Old Testament, so I trust in those that have a pipeline to God and his Will to let me know what God is actually Willing.

I am like most people. When there is an earthquake, a tornado, a hurricane, a famine, a tsunami, or whatever, I ignorantly and naturally assume there were natural causes and forces (like the earth slipping on a fault) that were behind the terrible disasters. Then my heart goes out to the people that have lost their lives or are faced with the terrible suffering in the aftermath.

But I guess I am not educated in the ways of the Lord.

So I have to rely in those that have intimate knowledge on the ways of the Lord. Fortunately, there is the Rev. Pat Robertson. He has a broad understanding of history as well as a broad understanding of God. Therefore he was able to determine that the terrible suffering of Haiti was brought on by God's wrath and not by geologic forces.

I guess, according to the Reverend, if you want to be free from the brutalities of slavery and rise up against a European oppressor then your country is in leagues with the Devil. It must have something to do with Divine Right of Kings and Oppressor Nations to enslave humanity. I think it is right there in the Bible.

So God has a long memory, according to Robertson, and he strikes back against those that have fought against slavery by impoverishing Haiti and ultimately sending a mighty quake to kill around 500,000 people.

Evidently God hates freedom worship as well as Devil worship.

But since I am a simple man and not trained in God's Will, like Rev. Robertson, it all doesn't seem to make any sense.

Like here in the United States, a massive hurricane hit New Orleans and nearly wiped out the city and from what I can tell most of the people in that city were Christians.

I don't know why God would wipe out New Orleans when there were so many bible believing Christians in that city.

Sure there is the French Quarter in New Orleans where there is a lot of drinking and carousing, but from what I understand God didn't smite it. Yet, God really got mad at his faithful servants throughout New Orleans and smited a lot of it.

So the Reverend Pat Robertson, like most fundamental Ministers of the Holy Word, knows that God wouldn't wipe out countries and cities unless they were doing the wrong thing. Worse, God has a long memory, so a place might be wiped out many centuries later for doing the wrong thing.

I guess, following the Rev. Robertson's exalted understanding of God's Will, either the people of New Orleans must have been secretly making pacts with the Devil or God didn't want them worshiping as Christians.

It all gets confusing trying to understand God and what he wants. Happily we have great and learned souls like the Rev. Robertson that can clear it up.

But as of right now, I don't know if I should be a Christian because God is evidently not happy with them. Come to think of it, God takes out Muslims, Buddhists, Atheists, Hindus, Sikhs, and doesn't show any distinction on whom he smites.
