At that time some people who were present there told him about the Galileans whose blood Pilate had mingled with the blood of their sacrifices. He said to them in reply, “Do you think that because these Galileans suffered in this way they were greater sinners than all other Galileans? By no means! But I tell you, if you do not repent, you will all perish as they did! Or those eighteen people who were killed when the tower at Siloam fell on them – do you think they were more guilty than everyone else who lived in Jerusalem? By no means! But I tell you, if you do not repent, you will all perish as they did!” Luke 13:1-5
Ironically his thoughts about the cause of Haiti’s problems hasn’t stopped him from encouraging his people to contribute money for relief and help for the victims of the quake.
He is rightly going to take some hits for his foolish words, but he has a long history of such idiocy, but I’ll wager the Haitians are going to be a whole lot more interested and thankful for the aid money he will raise than the idiocy that he speaks while doing so. Mary Katherine Ham’s joke has more than a grain of truth to it.
He is correct about one thing, for a country that has been independent for over two centuries it has been one of the least successful states in history. Considering how well Haitians do when they come to the US it certainly isn’t the people.
