The Ecumenism of Big Government
Mark Tooley, American Spectator
According to the New York Times, several weeks ago the White House hosted several dozen pro-Obamacare groups to plot public relations during the U.S. Supreme Court hearings this week about its constitutionality. Mobilizing visible religious support evidently was deemed crucial. The historic United Methodist Building on Capitol Hill, conveniently across the street from the court, was the natural choice as headquarters for the campaign and "prayer vigil."
So liberal religious groups have been demonstrating and providing photo ops across three days outside the U.S. Supreme Court, periodically ducking into the 90-year-old Methodist Building for a chapel service or radio interviews.
TAGGED: Obamacare, liberals
