It mght explain some things

100,000 dead in Haiti.  And Pat Robertson says it's because the Haitians made a pact with the Devil.

Cue predictable and tiresome oaths and muttering from some quarters.   'What a dick,' they mutter.[1]  'Twisted asshat,' they curse.[2]

But wait! if you translate 'Satan' into the appropriate deity, they actually did that.

[1] Completely forgetting about the whole 'what you do comes back at you threefold' thing many of them profess to believe in.  That's not just the good stuff, or the really foul deeds, folks: it's everything.

[2] I might agree with them except ... man, does anyone actually pay attention to Pat Roberson except when he makes the news for saying  stuff that gets panties in a twist?  Stop paying attention to him: the rest of us have.
