In an article in Newsweek called “Why God Hates Haiti,” Dr. Bart Ehrman from the University of North Carolina asks a very good question. His question comes in response to Pat Robertson’s claim that God caused the earthquake to devastate Haiti last week because of the practice of voodoo. In response, Ehrman asked:
If that [the earthquake] happened to the Haitians because they’re so sinful, then why hasn’t it happened to him [Robertson]?
I disagree with Ehrman about alot of things, but I think he’s asked a very good question.
