Father Cuffy focuses on relief efforts for earthquake victims

Father Franklyn Cuffy

“Not Haiti again,” were the words of Catholic Priest Father Franklyn Cuffy following Tuesday’s devastating 7.0 magnitude earthquake.

Cuffy, a member of a number of humanitarian organizations in Dominica, said a decision was taken following the earthquake to donate proceeds of some upcoming events to victims in Haiti.

“We have our peace concert on January 22, 2009 and we are hoping that they can make a contribution to Haiti. We are hoping to have a special fundraiser on March 5, 2009 at our Community House in Belfast and all the monies collected will go to Haiti. For the last 200 years there has been civil unrest in that part of the world. In 2008 they had four hurricanes. It’s very painful when these things happen. It could happen to us in Dominica,” he said.

Cuffy said this is a time for the world to come together to assist the devastated country.

    I have not seen documentation but I have heard from numerous sources that early in the history of Haiti the country was dedicated to Satan. Voodoo is the official ”religion” of Haiti. The practice of this occult art and various other forms of witchcraft are rampant in Haiti.

    No nation that tolerates these evils is going to have God’s protection and blessing. Haiti is ruled by the forces of darkness. The evidence of evil is seen everywhere. When people pay homage to the Satan and traffic in demonic rites and ceremonies with the approval of their government they draw to themselves the worst kind of calamities.

    God will be merciful to individuals who turn away from sin and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ. But only national repentance from the top down will break Satan’s curse and free the country from his grip.

    The nation must go on record publically as confessing that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and Lord of all.

      What a foolish thing to say!

      Instead of considering the reasons Pat Robertson said what he did in the light of the Holy Scriptures you make a statement like this.

      You have no understanding of spiritual dynamics and obviously you do not know the history of Haiti.

      If Haiti as a nation officially repented of their satanic practices and confessed that Jesus Christ is Lord they would be delivered from the powers of darkness. Haiti can have God’s protection and blessings if they would turn to Him.

      Until then individuals in Haiti who put away their false gods and evil practices and receive Christ as their Lord and Savior (John 3:16, John 1:12, Revelation 3:20,) will be blessed by God and have abundant life. (John 10:10) (Colossians 1:12-14)

      Sincerely, Rev. Donald Hill. International Evangelist)

    Pat Robertson said that Haitians made a pact with the Devil back then, that I didn’t know.
