I first discovered Peter
Levenda when he did his latest 2009 Red Ice
Creations interview and he's been on my radar ever since. Derek and
Sharon Gilbert also have a nice collection of free interviews with
Levenda spanning several years. It's some fascinating material that
his Sinister Forces trilogy towards the top of a list of books I'd like
to get my hands on this year. Peter has some interesting posts on his blog, the latest of which
comments on the strange statements that continue to be made by Pat
Robertson on his 700 club news show. The most recent slur was towards
the suffering victims of the Haiti earthquake and how he speculates the
reason for this disaster was a "pact with the devil" that the people of
Haiti somehow entered in to at some point in the past. Yes....he
actually said this on a show aimed towards Christians.
Levenda puts a fascinating spin on this story by suggesting that it's
Robertson who has actually made the pact with the devil and builds his
case based on published reports from Time magazine in volume 2 chapter
15 of his Sinister Forces trilogy. Peter points to the support
has given to murderous thugs such as Taylor from Liberia, Chiluba of
Zambia, and Mobutu of Zaire. The accusation is that Robertson used
connections and alliances along with his Operation Blessings charity as
a conduit for conflict diamonds.
I have not read the Time magazine information yet, but Levenda is
clearly not a crackpot. I wished I could say the same for Robertson, I
once looked up to this man during my early days of Christianity.
