Pat Robertson: Haiti "Cursed" Because of Pact With Devil

Televangelist Pat Robertson says the devastating earthquake in Haiti resulted from the country making a "pact to the devil" to gain liberation.

Wyclef Jean's plea for urgent earthquake relief in Haiti: "We must act now"

"Something happened a long time ago in Haiti, and the people might not want to talk about it," the 1988 presidential candidate said on his Christian Broadcast Network. "They were under the heel of the French ... and they got together and swore a pact to the devil. They said ... read more

Heavens! Pat Robertson Steps Down from CBN

The controversial preacher man announced on The 700 Club yesterday that he's handing over the CEO reins of the Christian Broadcasting Network to his son, Gordon. The elder religioso, however, will remain chairman, and God, president. The revelation was met with skepticism by at least one critic of Robertson's. According to the Rev.

And yes, as a matter of fact, I think the ABC Family execs would love to be confused with that network. (It's no accident this is the channel that picked up cable rights to shows like Everwood and Gilmore Girls.)

Premise: A religious-themed newsmagazine, one of TV's longest-running programs. On the air since 1966, it launched nationally in '72, before becoming the flagship of the Christian Broadcast Network in 1977. It mixes news---from a religious perspective---with inspirational interviews with celebrities, along with Bible readings and entertainment. Conservative icon (and 1988 presidential candidate) Pat Robertson founded the hugely popular program from a 1963 fund-raising pledge effort on UHF TV in Virginia.
