Sinners, repent

Charles Hurt reports in today’s New York Post:

Repeatedly invoking the Bible, President Obama yesterday told religious leaders that health-care critics are “bearing false witness” against his plan.
The fire-and-brimstone president declared holy war in a telephone call with thousands of religious leaders around the country as he sought to breathe life into his plan for a system overhaul.

Lord, save us:

He said the reforms aim to carry out one of God’s commandments.
“I am my brother’s keeper. I am my sister’s keeper,” Obama said.
He called health reform a “core ethical and moral obligation.”

President Obama, with all due respect, sir, you are a false messiah.
JOHN adds: A moral duty to run our health care system like the post office? Yes, I’m sure that will sell! Actually, if moral duty enters into it at all, we have, to paraphrase John Erskine, a moral obligation to pursue good public policy.
