Chaplain Tries To Justify Taking Health Care From 30M Americans, Fails

Ed speaks to a man of faith who believes he can justify taking health care from 30 million Americans.

H/T Egberto Willies

Whoa...this "man of faith" was a guest on The Ed Show Friday night, and he attempted to justify taking health care away from 30 million Americans who are now covered under The Affordable Care Act.

Watch the video above to see how Ed Schultz and John Fugelsang take down this Chaplain openly lying about Obamacare.

Ed Schultz: The Christian faith is very clear, feed the poor, and heal the sick. Is it really Christ-like to take healthcare away from Americans that should have healthcare that could save their lives? …

Chaplain Klingenschmitt: Obamacare takes healthcare away from, a half a billion dollars was taken away from old people, from Medicare to fund basically a slew of people who refuse to get jobs. …

John Fugelsang: You know Jesus never asked a leper for copay. And in Matthew 10:7-8 commands his followers to heal the sick. Now every option of healthcare on the exchange allows for a woman to choose a provider that will only allow abortion in cases of rape or incest. Where the chaplain is being disingenuous is that the only time that this will ever pay for an abortion is in the case of rape or incest or if you believe as the chaplain does that contraception is the same as abortion. So I’d like to ask the chaplain if I could, Jesus never at any point in the gospels condemns abortion even though people were terminating pregnancies at the time. He does however come out quite frequently against killing the sinner through the death penalty. So have you sir ever once protested your tax dollars being taken to fund state sanctioned killing. …

Chaplain Klingenschmitt: Jesus said in Mark 15 that if anyone disobeys or dishonors his mother or father he should be put to death. Jesus said in Luke 17.

John Fugelsang: No sir. He did not say that. He is quoting Leviticus. He is throwing that back in the face of the Pharisees. Some of us know that story sir.

A chaplain who doesn't know much about Jesus. Another mouth-piece for the Right Wing extremists of the Republican Party exposed. Priceless.

It's great to have Ed Schultz back!
