Yesterday President Obama in a plea to “progressive” Catholic leaders tried to pontificate that it is our moral obligation to take care of our fellow man. Really; where did he reference this obligation? The Bible I believe. Now call me a cynic but didn’t the Obama justice department just threaten jail terms to High School teachers in Florida for referencing a prayer in public?
Again, call me a cynic, but you can’t reference the bible when it suits your argument to pass healthcare legislation and then arrest people for praying as we are asked to do in that same Bible. And as far as I know there is no reference in the Bible that the “government” has an obligation to “take care” of its citizens. The Bible talks about we as individuals should be our brother’s keeper. No third party shift of responsibility but a direct request of we as individuals.
And we do it better and with more compassion than any other nation through our churches and private charities. Using the Bible as the basis of government action is not only dangerous it is unconstitutional. Dangerous because if you attempt to apply the teachings of the Bible through the government apparatus, you are asking for tyranny. How can the government enforce “love thy neighbor”, “treat others as you would like to be treated” , “be thy brother’s keeper”; through law? We as individuals must be grounded in our faith and have a moral foundation for this government to work, but you can’t legislate the Bible teachings when it suits you.
The Christian faith is the foundation of our success and compassion in this country. The liberals including many in this administration are doing their best to destroy Christianity in the public square and now we are expected to believe that it is the Bible teachings that support a government takeover of healthcare?
These people are unbelievable. The Bible is a guide to living our lives to the fullest as individuals. There are too many sinners in this government to trust them with anything never mind our health decisions. Let us pray these people are defeated and seen for what they are… Am I under arrest? I guess that depends on if I support government healthcare…
