Wendy Wright, president of Concerned Women of America, explains how health care reform legislation violates each and every one of the Ten Commandments … including the ones against adultery, graven images, and taking the Lord’s name in vain:
#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.”
#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.
