So, the Rev. Wiley Drake
agrees with Pat Robertson
that God's wrath over a pact Haiti made with the Devil is what's behind the tiny nation's unending woes. The First Southern Baptist Church of Buena Park pastor tells the Orange County Register
he's not sure the Almighty dialed in the earthquake that just leveled Port-au-Prince, but he believes like Robertson that Haitian slaves made a 200-year pact to worship pagan gods--including
the Devil--in exchange for freedom from France, which was gained in 1804.
A University of Miami researcher has dismissed the claim
, but that's not important right now. What is important is if you drive past St. John the Baptist Roman Catholic Church in Costa Mesa right now, it appears the front of the property is totally flooded. Why oh why would God bring that on?
Is God still peeved over the
dust-up that kicked up a few years ago over a gay couple who enrolled their boys at
the parochial school?
