This was posted in the thread I posted about Whole Foods Ceo john mackey's health care plan. In it Roger Ebert gives his views on health care from an emotional viewpoint not a political one. It was all fine and good but then towards the end he pulls from the scripture in an attempt to show those Christians who are against this plan that they should be for it because of what their religion says. To me it seems cheap and wrong to do so. If you dont believe in Christ nor do you want Christian views forced on you and you dont want our elected representatives to have their faith influence them in their legislative or executive decisions, then dont attempt to sway us with religion. If you would like religion or faith to play a role in the decision making then get on board with all of the religious views. If you think it is alright to say Christianity is good when it helps the homeless then it is good when it protects unborn life.
Dont ask me to infuse my religious beliefs in one instance and then dismiss them in another.
Spider is exempt from this criticism.
