Chuck Colson: Health care outside government’s sphere

by Ruth Moon

Colson on health care: “Last Sunday night, pro-life Democrats sold the birthright of millions of unborn children for a mess of pottage.”

Health care is outside government’s rightful realm and is unchristian.

Colson’s ideas for health care reform.

A Catholic school in Boulder, Colo. will not allow the children of a lesbian couple to re-enroll in the fall. “Ignoring the contradiction” between the couple’s lifestyle and the school’s beliefs “would undermine the purpose for which Christian schools exist,” Colson says.

Genetically modified grains should be used to alleviate famine.

Marriage and sexuality affects every other aspect of life, including poverty, Colson says.

Catholic Charities is no longer offering health care benefits to spouses of employees, and “ordinary people are being asked to choose between their livelihood and obedience to their faith,” Colson said.
