Why do I appose Obamacare? Because history shows that everywhere socialism advances, it advances at the expense of Christianity. Stronger socialism always equals weaker Christian dynamics in society. Michael Totten’s essay on Havana gives us this:
He told me about what happened at his sister’s elementary school a few years after Castro took over.
“Do you want ice cream and dulces (sweets),” his sister’s teacher, a staunch Fidelista, asked the class.
“Yes!” the kids said.
“Okay, then,” she said. “Put your hands together, bow your heads, and pray to God that he brings you ice cream and dulces.”
Nothing happened, of course. God did not did not provide the children with ice cream or dulces.
“Now,” the teacher said. “Put your hands together and pray to Fidel that the Revolution gives you ice cream and sweets.”
The kids closed their eyes and bowed their heads. They prayed to Fidel Castro. And when the kids raised their heads and opened their eyes, ice cream and dulces had miraculously appeared on the teacher’s desk.
Yes, Obamacare is about something more important than medical insurance, it is a part of the bigger struggle for souls.
