Quotable: N.T. Wright

“In your country, for example, there seem to be Christian political forces saying that you shouldn’t have a national healthcare system. To us, in Britain, this is virtually unthinkable. Every other developed country from Norway to New Zealand has healthcare for all of its citizens. We don’t understand all of this opposition to it here in the U.S.”

N.T. Wright

I am not trying to make an explicit political point about health care or Obama. But it should make on pause when someone positioned like Wright says the argument against universal healthcare is incomprehensible to him. This should, at the very least, cause us consider if we are not perhaps being a bit hasty in our conclusions. Why again is universal health care a bad idea? (comments welcome)
