OH, my. Southern Baptists in Kentucky have discovered the perfect way to get rednecks to join their church.
From the Courier-Journal...
"In an effort its spokesman has described as “outreach to rednecks,” the Kentucky Baptist Convention is leading “Second Amendment Celebrations,” where churches around the state give away guns as door prizes to lure in nonbelievers in hopes of converting them to Christ."
Guns for Jesus.
Why do you begrudge Christians the same privileges that you enjoy?
You own at least one gun, it's a biggie too. Hypocrite.

Obamacare will selectively phase out the elderly and disabled by forcing higher cost "healthcare" and restricting access. We already see it. The approved doctor for my 85 year old father who is confined to a wheelchair is located across town where there is limited handicapped parking and he is forced to go up to a fifth floor office. There is no other option unless he pays higher premiums that he can't afford.
Obama's cult is a hateful one. Pity the elderly and the unborn.

You sarcasm not withstanding, being born poor doesn't mean you have to stay poor. Some people strve to be the best they can. Phil Robertson is a prime example of "rags to riches". He had an idea, expanded on it, took out loans to get started, worked his ass off for decades and is now a multimillionaire. He chose not to stay poor.

You offer pity without looking at the whole story.

You want tax money handouts just because someone doesn't have a lot of money in the bank.

You want tax money handouts for the miraculous and difficult task of pregnancy.

You're pathetic.

The major problem with ACA is that conservatives are trying to make it fail any way they can.
It should fail for conservatives. The uninsured ones that develop major illnesses should go bankrupt. If their families suffer with them, oh well -let them pray. Is that attitude wrong?

Yeah, lets bankrupt the whole country and make everyone suffer except for the exempted public workers.

And allow only the government to run it. Like the VA!!!!

Yeah, that's a great idea...

More from a 'rational atheist' oxymoron...

Smirk.
