In “Self-Reliance, Ralph Waldo Emerson famously wrote: “For every Stoic was a Stoic; but in Christendom where is the Christian?”. It looks like some of them may be the ones mentioned in this article.
It’s nice to see that some on the right actually read their Bible:
“For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’
“Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’
“The King will reply, ‘I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.'”(Matthew 25:35–40)
Maybe there is some hope for healthcare reform.
