Yet your author's questions seem to presume an opposition to the expansion of coverage rather than to the idea that individuals can be compelled by their government to purchase health insurance. Are you sure that this guy fully understands the nature of people's objections today to the SC's rulings?
    There seems to be a misconception that he wrote this specifically in response to today's ruling. I think he's just pondering some general questions from a Christian humanist standpoint *edit* and wondering why so many of his Christian buddies are mad, that's all.

    Just out of curiosity, what's a "Christian humanist standpoint?" Honest question.

    Compulsory acts of compassion are not really compassionate at all.

    I cannot be bought, compromised, detoured, lured away, turned back, deluded, or delayed. I will not flinch in the face of sacrifice, hesitate in the presence of adversity, negotiate at the table of the enemy, ponder at the pool of popularity, or meander in the maze of mediocrity.I wont give up, shut up, let up, until I have stayed up, stored up, prayed up, paid up, and showed up for all wounded children.

    Haven't you advocated for free needle exchanges? Not that I disagree with that...
