Keep in mind, the webcast was only to “progressive [LIBERAL] clergy ... no conservatives allowed.
“President Barack Obama Wednesday said America, as the world’s richest nation, had a moral duty to offer health care to everyone”
We also have a duty to provide free doughnuts, hamburgers, cars, HDTVs, Grandtheft Auto 8, sensible shoes, London Fog raincoats, digital cameras, laptop computers, full Encyclopedia Brittanica sets...
Where does it end?
Where is lightening when you think a strike is deserved. . .just speaking of a ‘morality’; while one’s actions disabuse all notions of such; seems to beg a ‘heavenly’ response. . .
“That is that we look out for one another, that I am my brother’s keeper and I am my sister’s keeper”
Random Americans are not my brother. Let their families take care of them. I’ll give what I choose to charity and what I choose to myself.
I want all that and a bag of chips and a puppy too.
” America, as the world’s richest nation, had a moral duty to offer health care to everyone “
Tort reform and practical approaches to helping those who have no or limited health care could go a long way.
Many churches have medical missions that take volunteer doctors, nurses, dentists
and other health care professionals from their congregations and go out into poor
and underserved areas like the Appalachians where they offer mobile health clinics.
It would seem logical and economically sound to encourage more volunteerism and fund raisers to
help support these missions and mobile clinics.
If there are well run county and charity hospitals
that could use more equipment
and beds and staff-it would seem to be practical and economical to help them.
Tort reform would be a huge benefit.
Instead , Barry decides to hijack the entire medical system, socialize it and suffocate it
in God’s name.
Truly; a Liberal mind is 'unto itself'. . .and by and for, itself. . .it is an empty, aberation of 'self' - in Caps.
Confounding; yes. ..disturbing and threatening; yes. . .
I agree completely. I have long maintained that if Ted Kennedy or Barack O think someone should have their medical care paid for, then please let them pay for it. But don’t steal money from others to apy for it.
Nowhere in the Scriptures are we told to forcibly take what belongs to one person and give it to another who we think needs it more. Indeed, the Word of God teaches just the opposite.
We are told that we are responsible for our own needs and for the needs of our families. The Bible teaches; “But if any provide not for his own, and especially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.” (1 Timothy 5:8)
There is nothing anywhere in God’s word that says the government is responsible to provide for us or our families. In fact, the Word of God instructs us that we shouldn’t even dump our responsibilities on the church either.
We are instructed; “If any man or woman that believeth have widows, let them relieve them, and let not the church be charged; that it may relieve them that are widows indeed.” (1 Timmothy 5:16) The church, not the government should help people who are unable to fend for themselves and have no family to support them (as a widow indeed).
So whether it’s Jeremiah Wright, or anyone else, preaching that God’s word supports any form of socialism, Bible believing Christians will reject that false doctrine.
If we have a moral obligation to help each other, then let’s ALL pay taxes instead of having the productive people in this society have to shoulder the burden for all of the people living off of our work.
All for one and one for all, right, turdslide? (referring to Barry Hussein)
Wrong. Everyone is your brother but that doesn't mean you have to sit there and be taken advantage of.
Two of the spiritual works of mercy are to instruct the ignorant and convert the sinner. Taking advantage and stealing from people (stealing services from lawful taxpayers) is a sin and the sinner needs to be told.
Morals from a guy who is a black supremest, a man who has broken every major campaign promise he made, who lets his brother live in squalor, who’s mentor was a bomber who killed police officers and was upset he hadn’t killed more ...
GIVE ME A BREAK!!!!!!!
