Catholics Against Health-Care Nuts…

kubrick2-9910[1]Dr. Strangelove and opinionated Catholics are kind of a troubling combination.  Are they not?

Well maybe not, opinionated Catholics contend differently.

The OC folk think that getting healthcare reform passed as soon as possible is the way to go.  Their site says:

“There seems to be a line of logic that those that have concerns over health care reform should be engaged. In fact we have even been treated to the spectacle of some United States Senators (who on our side) saying that those that have such concerns are SANE AMERICANS.

“Thankfully this counterproductive pandering to the mob that represents what is worse in America (Click here for pictures of the usual suspects) is still a minority approach. Rep. John Dingell does the Lord’s work in reminding us that Health Care reform opponents are like Klan & White Supremacists. We must never forget who we are dealing with. As Rep. Brian Baird (D., Wash.) so well puts it Health-Care Opponents remind him of Tim McVeigh.

    I liken these town hall meeting protesters to the mob that encircled Jesus and yelled for his death.

    And what did Jesus say about those people? – ‘forgive them Father, they know what they do’.

    I truly believe these protesters (for the most part) do not actually know what they are doing. These are obviously simple minded people that cannot see the big picture.

    They are only being led by their beloved leaders Rush, Hannity, Beck, Coulter, O’Reilly – but these media talkheads are being led by their golden masters – the corporate health care lobbyists.

    And these two groups know exactly what they are doing!

    ‘they know NOT what they do’

    Lilac,

    I agree that the biggest majority of these people are clueless and haven’t bothered to think or do the research. The rest are stingy and need to try walking a mile in the shoes of the ones they continuously diss. They also need to read the New Testament. If they’re claiming to be Christians, they need to walk the walk, not just talk the talk.

    BTW, good on the Catholics!

  4. In American no one should have to fear going broke if they have the misfortune of getting sick.

    Why would anyone be against that?
