Gov. unveils health partnership with God

Post  AustenFan on Sat Aug 22, 2009 1:11 pm

This is a humorous (to me, anyway) piece by a conservative from Iowa; I find it really interesting that the same non religious liberals who would decry Bush when they felt he was combining church and state have nary a peep to say about Obama claiming that " We are God's partners in life and death." As long as it fits the agenda that includes socialized medicine, I guess they will tolerate it. And JFTR, I think the health care system needs an overhaul. I just don't think the government talking it over is an answer and there's something highly suspicious about a 1000 page plane that must be pushed through immediately when we face and even highre defcit than originally projected-2 TRILLION more?!!

It's long been a belief of mine

that those who constantly demand an absolute separation of church and state don't really mean what they say at all. What they want is a certain policy to pass or a certain policy to fail, and they resent the political participation of certain conservative religious groups who tend to thwart their policy proposals.

Listen to what I can only think of as the spectacular idiocy of the opening of this editorial:

"Does expanding public health care equal "socialism?" Some say "yes," but I say it is simply the Christian thing to do. Of course, it is not exclusively Christian--people of every (and no) faith tradition also see caring for the sick as essential to their religion/philosophy. I applaud secular ethical arguments in favor of public health care: it will benefit (not sink) the U.S. economically, socially, and politically, and it is part of our civic obligation. But it is also a Christian obligation."

And that is written by a professor of Christian Social Ethics at Loyola University.

Some say yes, but I say...

I told Mrs Joe that I like to hope this was a professor who knew she needed to dumb it down for a newspaper readership and just way overestimated how much.
