Gordon Klingenschmitt is excited about a recent Fox News poll that claims that 58 percent of Americans want to repeal Obamacare, declaring on his “Pray In Jesus Name” program recently that people ought to be relying on God for their healthcare.

Citing a passage from Exodus 15, Klingenschmitt asserted that God will protect people from disease so long as they obey His commands and said that Americans “ought to look to the Lord for our healthcare.”

“I personally prefer to look to almighty God as my healer and not to the government as a substitute god or substitute healer,” he said, before praying that this nation would “repent of worshiping President Obama as if he is a god”:

  1. I agree that Fundamentalist Christians should definitely rely on Jesus for healthcare; perhaps if enough of them look to prayer instead of science to cure them, we'll see a desperately-needed thinning of the Herd Of Ignorance And Illiteracy with which our country is infected.

    • He is "Of the Devil". Just as we all know that Obamacare is a substitute for the healing powers of our Lord. We in kind know that when Gordon received his bachelor's degree in political science, he has used that as a substitute for studying the Bible and the word of the Lord. I pray that God heap burning coals upon his to drive out the demons of his unhallowed soul.

  2. Before men developed the ability do kidney transplants, a thousand could pray, and with kidney failure, you still died. Now many live on. Is it because we pray better now?

  3. How effing stupid. Even "Answers in Genesis" member Bodie Hodge, went to the hospital when he had heart trouble. And those people are about as fundy as they come:

    As an addition, the stupid thing is? This is the same Bodie Hodge who said that if Nazis were knocking on your door, asking if Jews were inside, that it'd be immoral to lie to him, since one is supposed to leave things in God's hands.

    But, when HE had heart trouble, it was off to the hospital for human intervention. So much for the advice he gave earlier about "letting christ reign".

    Yeah. That's something to think about isn't it?
