Paganism makes a comeback under the guise of Obamacare

Pagans-fbWorship the tree, sacrifice the human…

A veritable death sentence has been handed down on a number of American citizens via the cancellation of their health insurance policies per the Affordable Care Act, as reported by LifeNews.com on Nov. 28 and 29, 2013.

Background Information…

Radical environmentalists and militant animal-rights activists have been accused of neo-paganism owing to their preference for the well being of flora and fauna over that of fellow humans.

More often than not, activist courts and governmental agencies would come down in favor of perceived threats to various species of vermin or desert scrub while people lost their means of livelihood.

As the cascade effect of legally protected neo-paganism has ran its course in the past, unemployed parents eventually resulted in hungry children.

Love the Animal, Worship the Animal… 

Perhaps the most egregious example would be the case of the Delhi Sands Flower-Loving Fly of Southern California, where the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service ordered the city of Colton to take a hands-off position toward the fly’s “prime breeding habitat,” resulting in the loss of millions of dollars in jobs by way of construction of brick-and-mortar businesses.

As seen by many conservatives as examples of a resurgence of paganism, conservatives accused enviro-activists guilty of the mindset of “love that animal, worship that animal… but sacrifice the humans.”

Human Sacrifice for the “Common Good”…

Examples of individuals suffering from severe illnesses who have seen their healthcare insurance canceled directly due to ObamaCare:

  • Edie Littlefield Sundby of California has been diagnosed with stage-four gallbladder cancer. Her present policy will be a thing of the past at the end of this month. She can find other policies comparable to her present one, but only with cost increases from “40% to 50% more.”
  • Virginia grandmother Debra Fishericks is currently battling kidney cancer, she also has been informed that in keeping with the provisions of the Affordable Care Act, her insurance is also about to be cancelled. Fishericks has been actively working “the Obamcare exchange web site for a new policy but cant afford any of the plans.”
  • Texas’ Hunter Alford has also seen his health care policy cancelled.  The 7-year-old’s parents have been fighting against a bureaucratic nightmare to get their son’s previous policy back in force, only to be told “the only way to expedite it is if my son was pregnant and in labor or an illegal.”

Another Texan, 26-year-old mother Whitney King-Johnson, is living with multiple sclerosis. She shared her plight with the advocacy group Concerned Women for America, writing:

If I tried to find a comparable plan to what I had, my monthly cost went from $325 to now over $1,000; that was just a quote. I was told I should expect that cost to go up. Remind me again how ObamaCare was supposed to help so much with preexisting conditions?

Taxpayer Subsidized Cult of Personality…

Starting out with only certain individuals and private organizations mutating personal admiration into a quasi-religion, the cult of Obama has gone from his image on votive candles to the cover of schoolbooks.

Slowly during the history of the Obama Administration, groups have surfaced that openly pushed phrases such as “the common good” and “the greater good.” All advocate the new normal, whereby the few who sacrifice for Obama and his vision are deemed acceptable.With the decidedly Socialist title The Greater Good out of the UC Berkeley, the university’s news/propaganda “Greater Good Science Center”  recently published an article entitled “The Obama Factor.

Certain left-leaning Protestants have formed a mainstream-sounding faith known as Protestants for the Common Good.

The group’s board of directors include a bevy of individuals with names like “Civil Rights Team” and credoes that include “LGBT inclusion issues.” One of them id Jill Wood-Naatz, who describes her association with Obama for America as one of her major accomplishments in life.

Barack Obama book coverA new day has dawned in the burgeoning cult of Obama, and every taxpayer is being asked to dig deep to finance his deification.

The book “Barack Obama: Son of Promise, Child of Hope”paints a portrait of the president as “a modern combination of Moses and the Joseph of the Old Testament with a bit of Johnny Appleseed thrown in for good measure. It “has “officially ‘aligned’ with the Common Core State Standards Initiative, an attempt to standardize K-12 curricula around the country.”

    Paganism, schmaganism. Straight idolatry. Wheels greased by a paganism, perhaps, but even the pagans’ religious liberty is in danger when we’re pushed to regard a leader as superhuman.
