"True Story" - Commonweal blog about Robertson's remarks.

David Gibson comments,
Having grown up with so much of the “It’s God’s will” fatalism anytime anything happens, I get a little unnerved by such talk. “God’s will” now seems to be an excuse to do whatever we like doing, but not so much when disaster strikes. Trying to put aside my reflexive cringing at the likes of Steele and Palin’s God talk, there is something about God being as involved or responsible or consoling in an individual loss (or triumph, I suppose) as in a global disaster.
UPDATED: Michele posted on the ironic contrast between Robertson's folksy religion and the authentic faith of (at least some) Haitian people, as reported in the NYT.
