Separation of Church and ObamaCare
Leftists are always eager to relegate faith to one’s private life and keep church and state entirely separate. Until they’re not. Any time they want to advocate wealth redistribution, same-sex marriage or even killing babies, they point to the Bible and say, “See, there’s a verse about _____.” Naturally, such exegesis is usually out of context or misapplied. Their latest Bible-thumping involves ObamaCare enrollment. Jeryl Bier of The Weekly Standard notes, “In an effort to sign up as many consumers as possible for insurance under the Affordable Care Act (or Obamacare), the Obama administration has gone to extraordinary lengths to partner with churches and other faith-based groups, even publishing sample church bulletin inserts, flyers, and scripts for announcements, as well as ‘talking points.’ These materials are part of the ‘Second Sunday & Faith Weekend of Action Toolkit,’ which is available on the website of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).” It goes so far in one instance as to cite I Corinthians 6:19, which says, “Your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit” – and therefore you “must be insured.” Good heavens, the hypocrisy! The party of “keep your laws off my body” is now misquoting Scripture to spiritualize a government mandate to buy insurance.
