With all of the emotion that accompanies the health care reform debate, it was only a matter of time until people starting stepping over the line. Still, I’m sad to see statements like, “How can you be a Christian and not support health care reform?”
The truth is that just about everyone thinks things need to change. Not supporting any of the Democratic bills does not constitute thinking that our health care system is fine.
And not supporting a “government option” that appears to be designed to lead to a single-payer system is not un-Christian. People of good will can believe that this will only destroy what is good in our health care system and hurt the very people it is intended to help (along with everyone else).
Besides, the real un-Christian attitude is the one that wants to give all this power to the government, right?
As we’ve discussed before, when the discussion is about how to help people, it is not right to start pointing fingers at our brethren.
The un-Christian attitude, the sinful mindset, is the one that says, “I’ve got my health care; I don’t care about you.”
