Somebody surely thought something about my last blog. I know the use of the word “socialism” is an EXTREME oversimplification and not even accurate, but it’s just using the rhetoric that I hear on the news. Nevertheless, I still think it’s a valid point! Why are Christians so up in arms over the health reform when they should be giving their money to help needy people anyway? And don’t tell me the people who go on government health plans aren’t needy or could be doing more to help themselves. Most of the people I work with don’t have health insurance. Hell, I don’t think most of my family has health insurance. And we’re all hard workers. It makes me mad to read the inflammatory statements made on Facebook about this without having any idea WHY the person believes it’s such a bad move. It seems so inconsistent with what their worldview should be. Which, though it’s a completely different topic, is usually a little more Americanized than Jesus would approve of I’m pretty sure….
I'm a young, childless widow who is trying to figure out the best way to deal with the world in light of my late husband's suicide. It's harder than I ever imagined it would be, but somehow at the same time I am still alive and even happy sometimes. View all posts by erinreeve
