Black Preacher Echoes Palin's Sentiments on ObamaCare

By Adrienne Ross from www.motivationtruth.com

I want to know why it's okay for President Obama to use religious talk when he wants to get a health care bill passed, but if Sarah Palin simply whispers "God," haters rant and rave that she's trying to evangelize the nation! The craziest part of that is I have never heard Sarah use politics to preach. Her recent statements have been on issues involving health care and energy. However, some people continue to attack her simply because they know she is a woman of faith.

While Sarah Palin cannot say, "God bless you" to someone who sneezes without being accused of forcing her religion on people, President Obama conducts a conference call with 1,000 religious leaders so he can try to gain support for his government health care proposal. It amazes me how easy it is for people to talk the talk when they have something to gain from it. The National Day of Prayer comes, and the president refuses to acknowledge it. He goes to Georgetown to speak and asks them to cover the name of Jesus so it won't be seen. But he lapses into religious jargon when he stands to benefit from it.

Andrea Tantaros wrote about this in an article she entitled "Obama Plays the God Card." Isn't that what politicians do? They always know their crowd, and they work that crowd to receive the desired response. Then you have a public servant, a Sarah Palin, who simply lives the life, who speaks as she does because that's who she is.

But President Obama may have gone too far this time. I'd like to believe that something didn't settle right for some of these religious leaders when he said, "We are God's partners in matters of life and death." It's this very mindset that gives people concerns about rationed health care. The government does NOT partner with God when making these kinds of decisions.

Tantaros wrote:

Further, Pastor Obama said that many were "bearing false witness" and took a shot at his opposition calling the pushback to date: "fabrications that have been put out there in order to discourage people from meeting what I consider to be a core ethical and moral obligation: that is that we look out for one another, that I am my brother's keeper, I am my sister's keeper. In the wealthiest nation on earth right now, we are neglecting to live up to that call.

I pray these leaders are smart enough to know that anyone can quote Scripture and blur the issues in an attempt to get what they want. To suggest that you are doing God's work by pushing through a health care bill that will determine who is and is not worthy of care and who does and does not have the "level of productivity" in society to warrant that care is, well, to quote Sarah Palin, "downright evil."

Bishop Harry Jackson, a minister in DC who works closely with Martin Luther King's niece, Dr. Alveda King, puts this whole health care debate in proper perspective. I encourage you to listen to what he has to say about the issue, including his own personal story about how ObamaCare would have affected his life. He also puts abortion into the mix because the truth is, although President Obama continues to say that abortion is not in the health care bill, he's being disingenuous. Obama knows what some people do not know: unless the bill specifically states that abortion is NOT to be covered, it MUST be covered. Bishop Jackson exposes how this health care bill will affect the unborn--particularly Black babies. He calls the bill as it stands "ungodly and evil." Hmmm...Seems he's come to the same conclusion as Governor Palin. Watch it for yourself below.
