William Lane Craig, who usually sticks to apologetics and debates (he is arguably the best living Christian apologist and philosopher), takes on Obamacare in Bearing False Witness.
Craig suggests a few of questions that conservatives need to ask and that need to be seriously discussed:
- Is this more efficiently and effectively done through govenment or private charity?
- Is the healthcare program going to be so overburdened that it will lead to rationing? What in the bill prevents this outcome?
- It is not important what might be included (Iike abortion), but why is abortion not explicitly EXCLUDED just to prove Obama's claims that these moneys won't be used for abortions?
Obamacare is a fiasco that I hope never passes, and I hope that the death of Ted Kennedy doesn't give it a sympathy boost. Our great country can NOT go this direction and be fiscally and socially sound.
Promote the general welfare, not PROVIDE.
