    Link? (And you're correct, its wrong - JUST as wrong as your equally wrong statement about "the right's standard answer" was.)

    ...so, you must be stoked that tax levels are at their lowest in six decades, then?

    Not correct, yes the church should do those things not because the government say but that is what they preach.

    The right want all social welfare to be temporary. If you need it come get it but the program is supposed to help that person get off the welfare program so the can pay back the people in taxes that paid for there help.

    Men of Israel, consider carefully what you intend to do to these men. Some time ago Theudas appeared, claiming to be somebody, and about four hundred men rallied to him. He was killed, all his followers were dispersed, and it all came to nothing. After him, Judas the Galilean appeared in the days of the census and led a band of people in revolt. He too was killed, and all his followers were scattered. Therefore, in the present case I advise you: Leave these men alone! Let them go! For if their purpose or activity is of human origin, it will fail. But if it is from God, you will not be able to stop these men; you will only find yourselves fighting against God.” - Gamalie the Pharisee - Addressing the Sanhedrin regarding the new group called Christians
    "I support collecting more in taxes from people with high incomes who choose to actually pay taxes at lower tax rates than use lawyers and accountants to avoid taxes at higher tax rates," he wrote. "Some tax revenues at low tax rates is a heckuva lot better than no tax revenues at high tax rates." - Art Laffer (on 999 plan)

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.
