More Catholic-Bashing At WND?
Topic: WorldNetDaily

A Jan. 18 WorldNetDaily article shockingly does the right thing by disproving Pat Robertson's claim that Haitians made a deal with the devil a couple hundred years ago that somehow resulted in the recent earthquake, citing "distinguished Haitian Christian minister and scientist" Jean R. Gelin. But then, WND appears to indulge Gelin in a little implicit Catholic-bashing:

Gelin responded to questions from WND, confirming he has yet to find "any evidence for the pact or for a curse from God – even after this quake."

He said his research shows that the one steady influence that has helped Haiti is the growth of Protestantism.

How come only the Protestants get credit for bringing the Gospel to Haiti? The Catholics are there too -- indeed, the Catholic cathedral in Port-au-Prince was heavily damaged by the quake.

Apparently, only aggressive Protestant evangelists count; Gelin is affiliated with the Church of God, a charismatic evangelical sect.

WND does have an anti-Catholic strain to its reporting. Bill Donohue, where are you?
