Pat Robertson the showman

Get Religion provides some more context -- but by no means a defense! -- for Pat Robertson's remarks on Haiti's "deal with the devil."  To make matters worse, Robertson's network defended the remarks, explaining that "countless scholars and religious figures over the centuries . . . believe the country is cursed."  Faith in a good and loving God already takes a beating after a natural disaster like this; Robertson's attention-grabbing, "yes, religion promotes a worldview that is as primitive and childish as you feared!" schtick doesn't help matters.
