Posted on 11/19/2013 2:36:45 PM PST by Carbonsteel
CNN has blamed Christians for the problem of Americans without health insurance, calling it "The Obamacare 'scandal' you haven't heard about." In an article on CNN.com's Belief Blog, CNN writer John Blake says that, while famous pastors "preach in states where crosses and church steeples dot the skyline," they do nothing about "the poor who cant get the health insurance they would receive if they lived elsewhere."

This is some very sick thinking...
I guess all those Catholic, Baptist, Methodist and Presbyterian hospitals are empty...............
And how many poor people do they help?
If they were to ask me, I can name about a dozen churches and ministries that help the poor where I live — and they help the whole person — not just fill their bellies and send them away.
The scam is falling apart and they’re grasping.
Umm - CNN, those poor folks have to pay for it. Or fined if they don’t. Whether they can afford it or not.
CNN will blame the Pope next!...
Yes, it is the secular who are running the soup kitchens, thrift stores, shelters and rescue missions. Atheists are always the most altruistic.
Guess they got tired of blaming Bush.
Blame everyone but the people who actually wrote, promoted and passed it
Why can’t this simply be blamed in anybody that voted for it. Democrats.
“You will be hated for My Names Sake, but the one who endures to the end will be saved”
Prophecy being fulfilled before our very eyes.
CNN belief blog....is that sort of like “stripper church”
what friggin country do these people live in?? If I was from another time and I teleported here, I would think that the US was a country rife with terminally ill people, their weakened bodies littering the streets and there was a political group trying to kill them off while another was out there like Florence Nightengales, tending to all the ill..
What about also offering those same poor people a job? I know of people who do that also so those same people can pay for their own healthcare. Working, if able, must always be part of the equation.
Sounds like Nazi Germany blaming its problems on the Jews.
Good luck with Anthony Bourdain, CNN.
Gets my vote...
Catholic hospitals may have to close if their facilities are forced to be used for abortion purposes.
WHY does any sane person watch CNN? Why?
“The scam is falling apart and theyre grasping.”
A while back I posted as this unravels further, expect the excuses and blaming to become more and more desperate and outrageous.
This one is original. I’ll give the writer credit for that at least. Not that it will sell but at least the writer tried
As usual the arguments from the left make no sense. Insurance is and always has been an instrument to protect monetary assets. “The poor” have no need to protect their assets; they have no intention of ever paying their medical bills. Hospitals and doctors make little effort to collect the debts. What “the poor” care about is getting medical treatment. I have been working for a fire department for 25 years... no one is denied basic medical care based on their ability to pay.
We have one man in our community a long time alcoholic that ran up over $2,000,000 dollars in unpaid medical bills from ambulance companies, doctors and hospitals. He has never been denied medical care. It doesn't happen. Obamacare has nothing to do with guaranteeing health care to “the poor”. They are already guaranteed medical care.
“more and more desperate and outrageous”
They’re between that rock and a hard place. This scam has become personal for the only group they can count on fooling — the LIVs.
Incredible, but the beat marches on.
“We have one man in our community a long time alcoholic that ran up over $2,000,000 dollars in unpaid medical bills from ambulance companies, doctors and hospitals.”
This is one of the major things that’s driving up costs for the rest of us. I’m sure most of us have witnessed it.
I know a woman from south of the border, here legally, married to an Army officer.
But her father was sick with some type of stomach problem, so she invited him for an extended stay. While he was here, he went to the doctor, who admitted him to the hospital for nearly 2 weeks.
He then went back home without paying, never intended to pay.
“That was close as most of the time it’s me and my people that catch hell for everything that goes wrong. “
Lost people, or boys?
soon they’re get their leader and their 1260 days of harmonic peace, but beware the wrath of the Lamb...fools Ps 14:7
Yeah, because I’m clothed in Christ’s righteousness, He intercedes for me, and I’m praying that it fails.
At least the didn’t blame the J-O-O-S.
Whereas now people will be denied healthcare based on survival of the fittest.
