The Christian-based Family Research Center (FRC) asked its followers to pray against Obamacare yesterday.
The FRC is alarmed that 30 million Americans who do not have health insurance coverage will start signing up for Obamacare on Oct. 1 and implored God to stop it from happening.
The Christian-centered organization was equally alarmed that "navigators" have been hired by the U.S. government to help Americans navigate their way through the health care exchanges and sign up.
The FRC wrote:
If Congress fails to act, on October 1, just two weeks from today, state and federal insurance exchanges will open, and HHS "Navigators" will begin their drive to sell and give away as many government subsidized insurance policies as they can.
Tax-funded Navigators will peddle free and low-cost government subsidized health care policies directly to individuals and families. Shockingly, the Navigators, who will be handling super-sensitive applicant information, were not adequately scrutinized in their own hiring process, nor have they been adequately trained.
The FRC did not explain how the "navigators" had not been "adequately trained." Also, people signing up for Obamacare are not required to give "navigators" any "super-sensitive applicant information."
The FRC also expressed worry about uninsured people signing up for health care when they are "ineligible for government subsidies."
The FRC repeated its false talking point that Obamacare provides for "the abortifacient morning-after pill," a medication that is actually taken to prevent pregnancy.
The FRC then urged Republicans to support Rep. Tom Graves' (R-Ga.) "Security, Stability, and Fairness Resolution," which would fund the U.S. government, but defund Obamacare, leaving millions without health care coverage.
Then came the dramatic prayer (below) to God to stop Obamacare, complete with Bible verses that do not mention health care.
However, there was no mention in the FRC prayer about the millions of Americans who do not have health insurance and cannot afford to see a doctor:
Father, have mercy! We have groaned at the thought of this threat since it was passed in 2009, yet far worse is to come, unless You intervene. Americans are confused, and few understand this. Please forgive our sins that justify such bondage, and deliver us. Stir Americans who do understand to speak out during the short two weeks ahead!
Grant our Congressmen the courage, will and unction to vote to defund Obamacare and to explain their reasons clearly to the American people. Intervene to prevent further lies and manipulation to advance a socialist system that Americans do not want. Lord, You are our Healer and the Hope of our nation!
