Chuck Norris asks: “What would have happened if Mother Mary had been covered by Obamacare?”

What if Mother Mary Had Obamacare? – by Chuck Norris

What would have happened if Mother Mary had been covered by Obamacare? What if that young, poor and uninsured teenage woman had been provided the federal funds (via Obamacare) and facilities (via Planned Parenthood, etc.) to avoid the ridicule, ostracizing, persecution and possible stoning because of her out-of-wedlock pregnancy? Imagine all the great souls who could have been erased from history and the influence of mankind if their parents had been as progressive as Washington’s wise men and women! Will Obamacare morph into Herodcare for the unborn?

Why would Mother Mary need to “avoid the ridicule, ostracizing, persecution and possible stoning because of her out-of-wedlock pregnancy?” Because of fundamentalists following Bible verses like this:

Deuteronomy 22:20-21 – “If, however, the charge is true and no proof of the girl’s virginity can be found, she shall be brought to the door of her father’s house and there the men of her town shall stone her to death. She has done a disgraceful thing in Israel by being promiscuous while still in her father’s house. You must purge the evil from among you.”

If Mother Mary Had Obamacare, she would not face stoning and her child would have been born in a hospital instead of a barn.

    No, PP would talk here into an abortion or better yet a morning after pill. If she failed to realize how foolish she was for carrying the child to term, she still would have partial-birth abortion flung upon her as another out. Ten years later she is treated for depression the rest of life after realizing the horrors she put upon her child. Of course with the new Obama-lack-of-care, the government would be bankrupt and she would go right back to the Inn, that was of course full.

    We come full circle and history repeats itself.

    Great post. Chuck Norris underscores how poor education and lack of intelligence creates the mindset which is destroying my country. It also shows the power of directed corporate influence to manufacture consent via creating false premises which are then used to arrive at “truth”. “Obama-lack-of-care” is a spectacular coup for some Pharma PR parasite in that it is a complete lie which is utterly the opposite of what is true, and it is accepted as a factual premise for argument.

    Nevertheless, just as irrational and demonstrative of “believers” inability to synthesize coherent thoughts from reality is this cretinous Bishop character posted above. This opinion sounds as if it could have been taken from a blathering Fox News reader or your typical white-trash low-church Christian (or for that matter an increasing number of Catholics getting back to their true murderous oppressive roots).

    The ideals of the Enlightenment and subsequent modern liberal Western thought are under attack from three fronts: First there are the ideological traitors assailing the liberal institutions which created the tolerance which allows the inanity of Christianity in all its forms, the most vulgar of which are the evangelical sects. Second, where the most destructive and insidious are the Christians mentioned above, less destructive, except for the occasional spectacle, but more nihilistic, are the Islamists who seek no less than to impose Sharia. Third, so-called liberals in the arts and social sciences who adhere to an orthodoxy whose effect is to create an intellectual nihilism where all views are sacred regardless of their content. This is as unscientific as the wing-nut Christians and Muslims.

    A return to Enlightenment rationality and pre-War liberalism is our only hope. The current course will lead us to a corporate plutocracy (if one is watching the healthcare reforms you would be forgiven if confused that we are not already there) where the simpleton Christians continue to be used to make the legal the looting of the country. I am not optimistic. Civilizations rise and fall. The Chinese are evil, and they are winning right now.

    Actually it is my own creation of which I am quite proud. I have others if you would like me to share.

    I think you should look at changing your handle to curmudgeon. It fits better.

    The only people who kill people for things like “out-of-wedlock pregnancy” are religious fundamentalists. Just look at Islamic countries. Look at how Christians treat homosexuals.

    Well as to be expected, the blog post completely ignores Norris’ point of what would happen to Mary under Obama-lack-of-care. I like that.

    Nobody knows because no one has been allowed to read the bill outside a privileged few.

    When Microsoft put together an new OS they do it in Modules thoroughly tested then they bring the modules together in a cohesive unit. This is just our healthcare. Write the code in one big lump and figure out if it works or not in the field. If only the government was forced to turn a profit….

    Chuck is right again.

    I know what would happen if Jesus was aborted! Either (a) the story would have died then and there and there wouldn’t be so much evil in our society, (b) they would have made up the story anyway (since the bible is obviously make believe) or (c) as Mary is walking out of Planned Parenthood, some religious asshole would have thrown a stone that got stuck in her vagina and three days later, the stone will be rolled away. XD

    Can’t see the downside to Jesus getting aborted, honestly.

    and the ramblings of the madman provides reason for the distrust of atheist. Herod?

    Why is it that so many atheists are so ignorant of economics? I just don’t get it: on the one hand, atheists are perfectly capable of figuring out that deities are BS, and that religion is a scam, but the majority of them still don’t get that the problem of health care in the US is the complete and utter lack of free markets.

    Read “How American Health Care Killed my Father” in the Atlantic Monthly.

    Jut because Chuck Norris and his merry band of theistic fools are stupid does not mean that supporting Obama’s crazy policies is smart.

    Two fallacies are destroying this world:
    The first is that there cannot be morality without religion, and the second is that there cannot be general prosperity without the State.

    The sad reality is that religion undermines morality, and that the State undermines general prosperity.
