Health Care Law Violates All Ten Commandments

This one law violates all of the Ten Commandments. Let's work our way backwards:

#10. You shall not covet.

As with many bills, politicians sold ObamaCare by stoking envy. It goes like this: "What other people own — what they earned — you are entitled to." Covetousness, wanting what others have, is cloaked as a "right." But a "right" to a product (like insurance) or service (like health care) means others are forced to pay for or provide it, with no concurrent "right" to be justly compensated.

#9. You shall not bear false witness.

Remember when President Obama made the wild accusation that doctors were removing children's tonsils and amputating diabetic patients' feet to make money? Virtually no mainstream media found it worth reporting that Obama's malicious false witness was debunked.

#8. You shall not steal.

Stealing is not only pointing a gun and demanding, "Give me your money." It's also taking money under false pretenses — frauds and scams like Bernie Madoff's, where money willingly handed over is used for something other than what was promised. You know where the bulk of the money taken for ObamaCare through taxes, fines, and raiding other accounts will go -- not to actual health care or insurance, but to 159 new bureaucracies, and tens of thousands of new government employees.

#7. You shall not commit adultery.

ObamaCare channels millions of dollars to graphic sex education programs which instruct kids as young as kindergartners to be sexually active. Read what some of the comprehensive sex education programs teach. This sets children up to take marriage vows lightly since "it's just sex."

#6. You shall not murder.

ObamaCare allows government funding of abortion, the murder of the most innocent.

#5. Honor your father and mother.

As parents age, it oftentimes falls on their children to make their health care decisions. It can be heart-wrenching. But it is our responsibility and duty as their children. Under ObamaCare, that privilege will be stripped from us and given to unaccountable bureaucrats. They will ultimately decide what health care our parents can get. Medical advances will be stymied, and what is available will be rationed. The elderly will be denied hip replacements and heart surgeries, medical wonders that provide full and productive lives. This will lead to unnecessary disabilities and untimely deaths. Parents will be at the mercy of bureaucrats tasked with calculating costs, rather than a family motivated by love and honor.

#4. Remember the Sabbath day to keep it holy.

Why was Congress compelled to hold the final vote on ObamaCare on a Sunday? No looming deadline demanded immediate action by the House of Representatives. It's as if they went out of their way to thumb their noses at God and prove their disrespect. The Senate vote was held on Christmas Eve.

#3. You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain.

Many people limit this to avoiding using God's name as a curse word. Jewish scholars, however, so solemnly followed this commandment that they wouldn't even write out the full name of God. They were cautious not to take His name lightly. President Obama gave a pen with which he signed ObamaCare to Sister Carol Keehan, the nun who runs the Catholic Health Association. Why? Her seal of approval appeared to give a Catholic blessing to a bill that her superiors, the bishops, rejected. Among the "Religious Left" credited by Nancy Pelosi were United Methodists and the "Faithful Reform in Health Care," a coalition of liberal religious agencies. Their titles as religious leaders, ambassadors of God, were shameless props used by politicians to give the thin veneer of God's approval. In effect, they used God's name, His reputation, to promote something that contradicts His commandments.

#2. You shall not make for yourself a carved image (false gods).

What do those who worship false gods do? They sacrifice to those gods, even despicable gods, in hopes that they will get something in return. Of course, these gods can't deliver. ObamaCare became a holy grail that surpassed a desire for health care reform, morphing into an obsession to pass a bill. Congressmen sacrificed their reputations and careers to pass a bill — a despised bill. It became a false god. And it isn't delivering.

#1. There is only one God.

ObamaCare sets up government as the one who will supply our needs and provide for our health. It places us on the path of socialist countries, where people expect the government to provide for them and then riot when governments cut bloated spending. In contrast, Americans throw Tea Parties to stop government expansion and spending. Most Americans know that their faith is better-placed in the true God who loves them more than any government official can. Propaganda and promises — even from Obama's religious leaders — will not overcome Americans' objections to ObamaCare. And we have good biblical reasons.

"And we have good biblical reasons."

This is an oxymoron.

It must have hurt to pull all of that out of your ass. I especially enjoyed the part about Sunday, if not for the rest of this, I bet it would be on CSTDT instead.

I count 9. Evidently, the dreaded health care system still allows someone to honour his or her parents.

> Health Care Law Violates All Ten Commandments

Why do I almost never see headlines like "Fundienuttery Violates All Ten Commandments, Doesn't Even Require Any Further Explanation Because It's Obvious To Anyone With A Functioning Brain?" ...wait, maybe because it's obvious to anyone with a functioning brain. Har.

Jesus gave free healthcare. Game over. You lose.

Let the countdown begin,

10 - so everybody who is too poor to pay for treatment dies early - how Christian

9 - What? were you listening to broadcasts from a parallel universe

8 - No the healthcare reform is not doing what the insurance companies do

7 - the healthcare reform does not address sex education that is the Schools budget

6 - Lying for Jesus again, Elders are asked to take their own decisions

5 - Hey you missed 5 but if your parents make decisions about their end of life care you should honour it

4 - Which Sabbath? And weren't you shopping at Walmart that day?

3 - You should go teach Christian apologetics that is the most convoluted piece of shit I have read outside of that cess pit

2 - But it is delivering, kids are covered, no lifetime limits, pre-existing conditions no reason for refusal and it is not fully in force yet. So you are lying for Jesus again.

1 - So HCR doesn't break this commandment, so you're making up shit - again

But ... Those aren't the true ten commandments! Read Exodus 34. My favorite commandment is the one that prohibits boiling a calf in its mother's milk.

For the record about this posting, though, every place where she says "Remember...". No I don't.

How about the prime directive? And the three laws of robotics? Does this medical program violate that?

I don't know, Wendy. What do you think government is for, exactly?

Actually, "Honor your father and mother" is covered in the original, but somehow got left out here.

But as for this:

Their titles as religious leaders, ambassadors of God, were shameless props used by politicians to give the thin veneer of God's approval.

...it's a good thing that right-wingers don't do that, huh?

"How about the prime directive? And the three laws of robotics? Does this medical program violate that?"

Prime directive: better access to health care will mean more psychiatric patients will be treated properly, clearly interfering in the primitive culture of the religious right.

Three laws of robotics:
Because all surgeries involve an amount of risk for the patient, doctors constantly infringe on the first law of robotics.
Because some patients attempt to get prescription drugs that they don't need, doctors constantly infringe on the second law of robotics.
Because patients are often contagious and sometimes distressed enough to behave aggressively, doctors constantly infringe on the third law of robotics.
Because after the reform, doctors will be robots, or something.

See? No matter what you're trying to say, you can always spin facts your way! Maybe I should give them fundies classes.

Ah, the Concerning Whiners of America, reading sex and tyranny into every single thing they can in order to perpetrate fear and division.

Well, Wendy, I am a woman. I am concerned for America. Mainly because organizations like yours aren't being more widely debunked.

The entire concept of Capitalism violates #10, so if you want to save your immortal soul, you need to go live on a commune in the Amazon.

5 & 6 were both included in the original. Here the explanation for 5 is listed under 6.
-----
#6. You shall not murder.

ObamaCare allows government funding of abortion, the murder of the most innocent.

#5. Honor your father and mother.

As parents age, it oftentimes falls on their children to make their health care decisions. It can be heart-wrenching. But it is our responsibility and duty as their children.

I've still never sen anyone reach that far before to come up with an argument against something. I wonder if her arms have serious stretch marks now.

Pro-Life indeed! Until you are born, anyway. Then you have to "earn" your right to be alive and healthy, just like Jesus said!

I suppose that The Good Samaritan should not have bothered about the traveller who fell among thieves and was beaten, robbed and stripped? That is definitely the drift of a lot of American thinking on healthcare now thast the nutcases seem to be taking over the asylum.

It would be condign if all those opposed to Obama on this got cancer and were dumped by their 'insurance' providers. Not that I would wish anyone ill. But 'as ye sow, so shall ye reap.'

Doubting Thomas

You're really, really reaching here, aren't you? Why didn't you think up some convoluted reasons how the Obama health care plan is in line with sharia law? That would have been equally entertaining.

And I for one really don't care if the health care plan breaks all the commandments since our government is secular and shouldn't have to be run by Christian ideals. And I don't care if it's not honoring God as long as I get treated.

Oh and the ten commandments don't matter anyway, because all the old testament laws were "nailed to the cross."

This actually made me laugh. This goes beyond reaching. This is pulling shit out of your stomach your hand is so far up your ass.

Oh, and you missed one.

Let's assume for the moment that you're right on all counts, Wendy.

So what? Our elected leaders are not, nor are they intended to be, our religious leaders.

Check the Constitution--it specifically says that no religious test can be applied to a public office. It doesn't matter if they follow the ten commandments or not.

This is for your own protection, Wendy. Savvy?

Wendy needs to be urine tested.

Concerned Brit

I still don't get why people are so upset about universal healthcare over there, particularly when you realise that the USA spends more per head of population on healthcare than pretty much anywhere else, and unlike the other big spenders ends up with a system that doesn't cover everyone. As much as we piss and moan about the NHS over here I doubt there's a sane person in the population who sees having the institution as a bad thing.

As for stymieing medical advances, Europe seems to be doing pretty well on the medical advancement front, and when an European project does something valuable (like decoding the human genome) the information gets published for everybody's benefit, rather than patenting it as a pharmo-corp would.

Fine. What's good for the goose is good for the gander. Let's see how the ol' Ten Commandments muster against the only law of the land that really matters: the US Constitution and the Bill of Rights...

1. There is only one God.

Conflicts. Violation of the 1st Ammendment Free Exercise clause which puts all gods, dieties, spirits, spooks, monsters, gobblins ("That's hob-gobblin!"), etc. on equal footing.

2. You shall not make for yourself a carved image (false gods).

Conflicts. Again, violation of Free Exercise clause for both religion and speech.

3. You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain.

Conflicts. Violation of freedom of speech. God damn it.

4. Remember the Sabbath day to keep it holy.

Conflicts. Violation of the Establishment Clause.

5. Honor thy father and your mother.

Convieniently skipped in your argument above even though you state "all" commandments. Let's take a crack at it anyway...

Conflicts. No law, statute, ordinence or regulation that states one must obey their parents. Hell, you don't even have to like your parents or hang around them after 18.

10/8/2010 5:52:28 AM



(cont.)

6. You shall not murder.

Agrees. But not in the same way you're arguing. Abortion is legal, get over it.

7. You shall not commit adultery.

Conflicts. Again, no law, statute, ordinence or regulation that states you cannot sleep with your neighbor's wife. Or your secretary. Or your girlfriend's husband...

8. You shall not steal.

Agrees. Stealing, both pety and grand, is wrong.

9. You shall not bear false witness.

Unless you're in a court of law and have sworn to tell the whole truth, no law, statute, ordinence or regulation that states you cannot talk trash about your neighbor, your boss, your coworkers, your goofy brother-in-law...

I'll give you half a point for this one.

10. You shall not covet.

Conflicts. Again, no law, statute, ordinence or regulation that states you cannot want what you don't have. People do it all the time, it's called wishing.

So your Ten Commandments got a measly 2 1/2 points out of ten against the US Constitution and the Bill of Rights. I think we all know who the clear winner here is: the American people!!!

God fucking damnit.

This is the most disgusting, contrived, elaborate misuse of religious texts I`ve seen.

That person should be ashamed of her/himself, to twist and turn their own faith in such a way.
