Quote of the Day

"Ed Schultz, MSNBC latest leftwing pundit, is also pontificating on the morality of socialized healthcare. Schultz told us that Jesus healed the sick and didn’t ask where their health insurance cards were. (And I suppose, in Schultz’s mind, Obama can walk on water too.) Do these liberals who want to redefine marriage really want to ask the question, “What would Jesus do?” Is a politician who attended the church of a racist pastor for 20 years in any position to lecture Christians about the proper role of government? Let me take a moment to suggest what Jesus would not do.

He would not claim that the right to destroy one million children a year is moral. He would not stand by while the plug was pulled on a disabled woman in Florida against her family’s wishes. He would not stand by as a government panel denies folks hip replacements and other treatments. Jesus did not advocate using Big Government to redistribute wealth.

If the Left wants to use the standard of “What would Jesus do?” I’m happy to have that debate. But I suspect they will be back to screaming about “walls of separation” in short order."
