Blood Money

Biblical Proof That True Christians Support Health Care Reform Part Four

Jesus famously taught: “It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.” The 23 CEO’s of Health Insurance America made 559.8 million dollars in 2005 alone, projected to almost 15 billion over five years. Would a true Christian oppose the reforms that would save these souls from the earthly wealth that locks them out of the kingdom of God, and condemns them? Wouldn’t Jesus spread a few crumbs and rags to the hungry and the homeless? Make no mistake, this is blood money, every drop excruciatingly extracted from an economy already starved for oxygen.

So I read tonight that Senator Joe Lieberman of Connecticut has stepped up to join Olympia Snowe as the face of the opposition to a public option, promising to filibuster any bill containing such language in the legislature. How is the continued inaction of a filibuster enacting the legislation that 68 percent of Connecticut wants? And how is that going to work anyway? Are you and Olympia going to slowly count to 15 billion on the floor of the Senate? You say we’re moving too quickly, but the procrastination causes another 123 people to die every day. Their blood drips from your hands and cries out from the earth....

I am a Democrat from Connecticut, and Lieberman is an absolute EMBARRASSMENT to our great little state. Jesus warned us against wolves who would come dressed in sheep skin, and Lieberman is a Republican hypocrite who smuggled himself into the Senate in the guise of a Democrat. I was deceived into voting for him in 2000, but not again in 06, when he falsely promised on the campaign trail: “what I’m saying to the people of Connecticut, I can do more for you and your families to get something done to make health care affordable, to get universal health insurance.” You shamelessly lied to your constituents, Joe, and are a traitor to the party that gave you the little power you now feebly wield against it.

Judas Iscariot was the most famous traitor in history. His price to kiss Christ was thirty pieces of silver, which was used to buy the potter’s field wherein he fell headlong, and burst asunder in the midst, and all his bowels gushed out. That place is called Aceldama, which means ‘the field of blood.’ Acts 1:18-19.

What is your cut of the blood money, Judas Lieberman? Or do you prefer Joe Iscariot? And how are you going to spend your pieces of silver? Is your Aceldama going to be a nice headstone in the Hamptons?

  1. Great post!
    Too bad those so-called Congressman and women and the so-called Christians don't know what the hell they're talking about when they try to use Jesus to justify their own actions and words.
    I lived in CT from birth until I was about 36 years old. I was told that living in the South would be easier, that there were more jobs and the cost of living was lower. I was deceived. My point though, is, that I am living amongst the mega-church crowd, the biggest of hypocritical so-called Christians that exist in America. These are the tea bagger set.
    Can you really fathom how hard they work against Christ!?! It is truly sickening. Everything they do to protest against President Obama is taken from the Bible and twisted so badly, it makes absolutely no sense at all. These people would not help an injured person on the side of the road. They are, what you referred to in an earlier column, "The Anti-Christs".
    Thank you for your excellent blogging about real Christians and real Christianity.
    Living among these people almost makes me ashamed to be labeled a Christian. But in my heart, I am proud to be a real one.
