NBC: True Christians Do Not Oppose Obamacare

Print Friendly Version of this pagePrint Get a PDF version of this webpagePDF
This past Saturday, Ed Schultz of the "Ed Show" on NBC's cable news channel MSNBC passionately told his audience only "a phoney Christian" would oppose Obamacare.

He said, "The Affordable Care Act [Obamacare] and the civil rights legislation passed in the 1960s are the two most moral things the country has ever done."


Only recently he and his colleagues who share his ideology have been saying that redefining marriage and affirming homosexual behavior and the civil rights legislation of the 1960s were the two most important.

Schultz, an employee of NBC and their news channel, then offered a disgusting mock prayer while one of his guests explained that Jesus is a Marxist and a Radical.

And there's more.

Schultz said of those who oppose Obamacare, "They're phoney Christians when they say that they are Christian, but then they want to take away from their next door neighbor. They don't want to be their brother's keeper."

He said he felt obliged to point out the "hypocrisy" of the "right wing Christians" who believe that the country would be better off without ACA (Obamacare).

He continued, "Make no mistake, there is no moral or religious case for taking away healthcare from 30 million Americans...If Obamacare is repealed, Americans will die. Children of God will die."

I wonder where his outrage is toward the far left secular progressive Planned Parenthood and their abortion agenda. And the people who support such a travesty?

Abortion has now killed, as of this morning, over 56,538,960 unborn children in America since Roe v. Wade. Over 766,948 have been killed this year in America.

Surely a man who hosts an NBC owned television show knows that the 30 million people he claims will not have healthcare is about the same number who will not have healthcare after 10 years of Obamacare.

The Congressional Budget Office estimates that in 2023---10 years after Obamacare is fully implemented, there will still be 31 million uninsured, non-elderly people in the United States. They're not even counting the old guys. And the CBO estimates that Obamacare will have cost the federal government [you and me] a net $1.363 trillion.


Scams are not generally considered "Christian."

But Ed Schultz went considerably beyond misrepresentations. He began his show with a mock prayer.
With his eyes closed and hands raised into the air, he said, "Dear Lord, in this house of worship called "Ed" tonight, we bring our praise to you, dear Lord. Give us strength to fight back against these soldiers of defeat and these soldiers of deceit when it comes to Obamacare. Give us strength to heal the sick and help the poor, because we know that's what you want Lord. Amen."


Schultz had 2 invited guests on this show. Ken Klukowski with Family Research Council and John Fugelsang---a far left comedian.

Klukowski tried to respond to a single question, saying, "From a public policy standpoint, I want people to have as good quality health care as possible, which is why I oppose Obamacare." At that point Schultz began talking over him and the viewers never heard the rest of his comments.

John Fugelsang compared the government health care program (Obamacare) to the ministry of Jesus.

Using Matthew 10 where Jesus sent out His disciples to proclaim His message and heal the sick.

He said, referring to Matthew 10: 8, "Jesus taught that you received without payment, now give without payment."

He also said that "Matthew 8:10 affirms that Jesus is a Marxist and a radical."

God help us.

Surely President Obama doesn't agree with this narrative, does he? Given his 20 years under the preaching of Rev. Jeremiah Wright, who knows?

But on the same day this conversation was airing on NBC's news channel, President Obama, on his radio address was telling America, "I'm going to keep doing everything in my power to make sure this law [Obamacare] works as its supposed to....Because in the United States of America, health insurance isn't a is your right. And we'll keep going to keep it that way."

An understanding of Scripture and the teachings of Jesus makes it clear He is neither a Marxist or a radical.

He is the only begotten Son of God, who died for the sins of mankind and rose from the dead as the prophets had said he would.

This kind of public discourse does, however, affirm that there are certainly those among us who are both Marxist and radical. And this ideology is at the top of their agenda.

Secular progressives have brought America to a cultural crossroads. We're looking at a conflict that will affect the direction and destiny of this nation.

What is a right?

What is a privilege or blessing?

Who decides?

I'm talking more about this on the radio this morning live at 9 AM, PDT and rebroadcast this evening at 7:30 PM, PDT. Here's how you can listen from anywhere in the world.

Be Vigilant. Be Discerning. Be Informed. Be Not Afraid. Be Prayerful. Be Blessed.


  1. Twisting of The Word to meet the desires of their hearts, without really thinking through the consequences. It is a shame that there are those that put on blinders to focus so intently on a percieved outcome that they are oblivious to the harm it will bring. The most difficult part is that I think many truely believe they are doing good by their actions, then again, Satan often has his way by subtle twists and misleading.

  2. Jesus was radical for his time when it came to women and non-Jews. He, of course, meant each Christian should give to others, not the government.

  3. Ed Schultz, just like Judas Iscariot, is deceived into thinking his actions will help many. Iscariot's actions didn't bring about God's kingdom on earth two thousand years ago, nethier will Obamacare save any lives at this present time.

    Shultz and Obama won't take the time to understand the Bible in it's full context. Iscariot chose to ignore God's word, and now suffers eternally . The same fate awaits shultz and Obama.

    1. AMEN! Socialism is Satanism as it leads people to believe they don't need to repent to know Jesus. Jesus healed people who came to him out of their free will. He also taught "go and sin no more lest something worse happen to you" Ed Shultz is of the spirit of the anti Christ as is the movement of socialistic parasites. Many who support Obamanation and his take from others policies hate Jesus, reject their need for him. Liberals cry church and state whenever REAL Christians stand against ungodly polices. Yet now they desire to clothe Obamanation care in Christianity. This is wicked! Obamanation care bribes women with birth control, attacks people of conscience and mandates compliance. Jesus revealed the source of such policies as Obamanation scam. The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.

      Those who truly trust Jesus won't sell out the the judas bill. Obama is evil in the flesh, a leader of error who doesn't respect free will!

  4. Basically Obama Care has more to do with if you think our medical system will be better for it or worse. Already people are seeing jobs are being cut because of it , and costs are rising . That alone allows for anyone Christian or not to consider it something bad for the American people . The Bill seems to have some good points and some bad points . Seems to me it made things worse .


  5. You can complain about the specific details of Obamacare, but if you advocate pulling it with no replacement to provide coverage for those who would lose coverage, then you are a fair weather Christian, not a real one.

    How much of a socialist was Jesus? Which system do you think Jesus would prefer?

    1) Obamacare
    2) Pre-Obamacare US System
    3) Current Canadian System.

    I think Jesus was just enough of a bleeding heart socialist that he would pick #3 - provide health care for everyone.

    1. Actually I think most people understand there you would pick that limited health care coverage would you prefer over a system that worked better then all three you limited the question to . Obviously Obama care will leave people worse off then they were financially , and possibly even their health care options more limited then they were before . That are just facts that most all acknowledge .

      Your not that smart . Your limited to your thinking to assume that because a democrat proposed it , its the only really choice we have . Also your limited to the concept that democrats could have come up with a better policy if they had different leadership . This was a bill full of sign offs to insurance companies and pay offs to politicians .

    2. First, you didn't answer the question of which plan Jesus would. I understand why, it's pretty obvious he'd pick the socialistic plan that offers health care to everyone and you're uncomfortable with that.

      Obamacare is not the only choice because it was proposed by a democrat, it's the only choice period. The republicans have no plan to replace it, just a plan to take it away from those who need it. Jesus would be so proud.

    3. JESUS is about choice! Socialism is about stealing! Many are suffering because of their sin and rather then turning from sin to Jesus they turn to mundane socialism which won't save a soul. Jesus calls sinners to repentance socialism rewards sin. You're in error!

    4. Jesus wouldn't choose any of the plans as Jesus is the great physician! He saves souls from sin, he didn't seek Cesar to fine people who didn't comply, did he? What is charity in God's book? Being forced to give, or choosing to give? Obamanation scam is extortion and exploiting people's health fears. You're clueless to Jesus.

  6. "nethier will Obamacare save any lives at this present time."

    You need to watch something besides Fox News, it already has. There have been plenty of stories about people getting care for cancer, etc. only because of changes already enacted (lifetime caps eliminated, kids can stay on parents policy until 26, no more pre-existing conditions for kids under 19, etc.)

    This is why the Republicans are putting such pressure to stop it before it's fully enacted next year, because once that happens, it will like Medicare - very popular and untouchable.

    1. It will be like medicare , basically the only choice available . Obama care has a few aspects to it that are good , so did slavery if you had no other way of supporting yourself . In the long run people who have freedom of choice do better .

    2. "In the long run people who have freedom of choice do better."

      Actually, not always, our current medical system results in medical outcomes much worse than most countries offering universal care.

    3. As an uninsured lower income Latino, Obama has no RIGHT to mandate his faithless, Jesus rejecting, conscience polluting vision on me or anyone. Only those who live in fear will be pimped by Obamanation. Obama leads sinners to believe they dont need Jesus. He exalts sin and bribes sinners. It's called perverting the gospel of grace.
