When Pope Francis said Christian Right Have Illness, Who comes to mind?

Can you think of anyone when Pope is calling right-wing, fundamentalist Christianity an "illness." Does the name "Pat" Robertson ring a bell?


If there is one thing that differentiate the new Pop from his predecessors is the way he preaches his message.His focus is fighting for economic equality. Pope Francis has shifted the focus of the Catholic Church to issues facing the poor and the sick, and away from anti-gay and anti-abortion that have dominated the Catholic religion

Like many other thing, Pope Francis does not seem to be impressed about Christian fundamentalism.

In a recent statement he actually called right-wing Christian fundamentalism a sickness. He further stated "Such ideological extremism is dangerous, not only to Christianity, but to the world"

When Pope Francis said Christian Right Have Illness, "Pat" Robertson comes to my mind

Evangelical Christian Robertson blamed the 2010 Haiti earthquake tragedy on Haiti pact to the devil.

According to Pat, "The Haitians were under the heel of the French. You know, Napoleon III and whatever, And they got together and swore a pact to the devil. They said, 'We will serve you if you will get us free from the French.' True story. And so, the devil said, 'OK, it's a deal."
