I have words, but I don't want to use them

I'm pretty sure the insanity of what's said in this video is going to speak for itself. However, as a preamble I want to say some things.
1) I'm heartbroken for the people in Haiti. I heard stories on the radio yesterday and today that had me in tears. I want to give something to help, but don't know where I'm going to do that yet.
2) I know several of you on my flist are Christian, and I really don't have a problem with that. But I know people like Pat Robertson, I know people that think like this and I don't even have words to tell you how sad, and how physically ill it makes me to hear comments like this. I know there's a lot of Christians that don't believe like this, and don't like this guy. But he's been popular and preaching like this for 30+ years on a National TV show. It's sad that this guy is a leader, that he has the ear of Christians in the nation - maybe not all, but any at all is still too many.



Updated to add the Haitian Ambassador's response on Rachel Maddow's show:

OMG... I couldn't watch any more after he said they swore a pact with the devil. Good Grief if everyone listen to him we'd be back in the time of the Salem Witch Trials. @_@
