Bill McCormack: Lie down, you sack of shit

Last night on Public Radio International's "To the Point," the discussion concerned proposed health care provision reform from a religious angle. You might imagine that folks representing religion would hold the view that the morally right thing to do would be to help as many people be as healthy as possible while holding down costs for everyone as much as possible. That's not always the case.

One Man of God, Bill McCormack of the Christian Coalition, vented detectable hatred toward the reformers, and especially toward President Obama. I'm sure if I were across the table from him I would have seen flecks of spittle flying hither and yon. Of course, he had to bring up the Wingnut Lie that the government would institute a program of euthanasia. Euthanasia? That's not in the bill, protested host Warren Olney. "Yes it is," replied His Sirreverence, who continued with his deranged description of health care in America. We're number one in the world! he claimed, speaking with an air that assumed his point was correct (We're number 37 in overall health system performance; France is number one, according to the World Health Organization). Some minutes later, Olney pressed him again about the bill containing a provision for euthanasia. This time the Unpleasant Pastor conceded that no, the word "euthanasia" was not in the bill, but the intent certainly was.

So the question is: is this man merely deluded, or is he a lying sack of shit?

I visited your site to challenge you to learn about 'contiguous dimensional worlds' and how they show Christian belief and its command to love to be understandable, logical and evidenced in a technical sense. But your site uses vulgarities and slogans indicative of anger and not of reasonable thinking. ''Techie Worlds', available at Amazon.com, explains this concept in detail. But some sites like yours are set up to attack the computers of those who wish to comment, so I will hit delete and shut down my system as quickly as possible.

GeorgeRic has left the identical comment at some other sites. Perhaps he has a contiguous dimensional love of those like Bill McCormack who don't care about the truth of their remarks and dwell in that contiguous Bizarro dimensional world of wingnuttery.

McCormack appears to be a lying sack of excrement. George Ric either enjoys that, or can't smell it.

Ed--If Ric made a similar deposit at your blog, I hope your site attacked his computer before he could finish his comment and hit delete.
