Reuters reports that leaders of the religious left (somehow Jim Wallis is never mentioned, but he probably vacations in August) are getting active in supporting the President's initiatives on healthcare. The reasons: (a) this issue has a moral dimension; (b) leaders of the religious right are behind a lot of the opposition.
Sisters and brothers of the left, please note that this religious conservative (a) agrees that this issue has a moral dimension; (b) cares as little for leaders of the religious right as you do.
But this religious conservative takes a different view of this issue precisely because we believe that the reasoning and evidence is overwhelming that the proposed reforms will provide worse healthcare, not better, and serve fewer people, not more.
So please: stop posturing morally and engage the issue at the level evidence and reasoning. You can't out-compassion someone just because someone who superficially agrees with that someone is a stupid-sounding televangelist.
