I missed the part in the Bill of Rights about the Freedom to Die.

There’s something about the “Tea Party” and libertarians that doesn’t pass the smell test. After watching the GOP debate, Jim Wright knows what that something is:

Stonekettle Station: Brother’s Keeper

These are the same people who would hold a man accountable – to the death – for failing to foresee the consequences of being uninsured, but would not hold a corporation, even though it be legally defined as a “person,” to the same standard – because that would be bad for business.

These are the self-professed Christians who every single Sunday hear their prophet’s very explicit and unequivocal command to feed the hungry, clothe the poor, and heal the sick, and would self-righteously let a man die because he could not pay – and these are the same folks who would cheer wildly at Rick Perry’s execution tally.

He goes on to point out something that people who profess religious faith should already know:

The morality of your action is not determined by the worthiness of others.

It all reminds me of something I read in a comment somewhere—that for a lot of “Christians,” the only parts of the bible that should not be taken literally are the parts Jesus said.
