Thank You, Christian Leaders!
· Those who invoke God’s name the most (led by people like Michelle Bachmann and Sarah Palin) are working the hardest at dismantling our best shot at giving all our neighbors adequate healthcare. Didn’t Jesus want us to administer to all the sick, not just those who could afford insurance?
· The same people working to dismantle advances in healthcare are, at the same time, doing their best to roll back other safety nets designed for the most disadvantaged in our country: the young, the old and the impoverished. While they cut expenditures for public welfare and schools, they fight against any attempt to reduce military spending and insist upon tax reductions and other benefits that go primarily to the rich and corporations. Is that the kind of compassion Christ wanted us to exhibit?Perhaps Moses would think well of our country, but I think Christ would be ashamed.
