To be fair on Pat Robertson
This action needs to be considered when labeling him with various epithets, and while his faith and reason may be utterly, almost pathetically misguided most of the time, his deeds and those of his organization "Operation Blessing" in terms of fighting poverty is certainly laudible.
from his site:
"Dr. Robertson’s compassion for the people of Haiti is clear. He called for prayer for them. His humanitarian arm has been working to help thousands of people in Haiti over the last year, and they are currently launching a major relief and recovery effort to help the victims of this disaster. They have sent a shipment of millions of dollars worth of medications that is now in Haiti, and their disaster team leaders are expected to arrive tomorrow and begin operations to ease the suffering."
Christians teach about something called "grace" and "mercy". They are called to show it, even though their imaginary god sends people to imaginary hell ultimately for simply not "worshipping and adoring" his imaginary self, the Christians themselves are called to a higher standard of morality than their pretend ruler, and that is one of being merciful, giving to those who suffer, and not causing the suffering or standing idly by when you can help, and that is something we can all learn from.
What Pat said and is motivated by is, in my opinion, deluded, but the end result of helping those less fortunate experience some modicum of humanity and right to life is commendable.
Its honestly very encouraging to see human beings put their religious and political ideologies aside to fight our common enemies...poverty and despair.
