Oh, one would think that taking care of the sick, or letting the sick take care of themselves on a level playing field, would be a "Christian" thing to do, support Jesus Christ's teachings, what with the Beatitudes
"And he opened his mouth, and taught them, saying,
Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.
Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.
Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.
Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.
Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.
Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake."
...and Matthew 10:41-42, Proverbs 22:22, Deuteronomy 26:13, Proverbs 31:6-9, Matthew 25: 35-40, and on and on, in both the New and Old Testaments (which 1/2 of all Americans don't know which one was written first).
Yeah, you MIGHT think that, but you know, when Jesus Christ comes again, it'll be the Rapture[TM], and no one will care if you've got Health Care or Not. I actually heard a "Republican Strategist" use this logic (that the Rapture[TM] is coming) arguing it at the end of the The Ed Show on MSNBC today. "You think Christ will take time out, during the Rapture[TM], to see if there's a public health care plan passed?" she shouted.
Selfish, narrow minded, CINO moron.
