As Christians, we should be most understanding about differences in personal beliefs. We have created a giant web of churches who share varying degrees of belief with one another. It has not been that long ago that Catholics and Protestants were killing one another. When a person has done something good, it is senseless to deny that good because they disagree with one of your fundamental beliefs. We are all of us a bit behind in focusing on the logs in our own eyes.

Hi Lisa I would like to mention a few things that I am not sure many may know of any health programs that are being promised by obama.

I have a wonderful p care doc. He blocks off 30 mins for me and then 30 mins for DH

Our Doc is a Christian and I donot think there are many out there like him

If this country the USA heads towards socialized medicine what will happen is that a good doc like I have will be forced to see more patients and then cut back on the time he now give us and having a brain injury well I need that time to talk with him and for him to be able to listen to me and all of my concerns.

So I ask that anyone that maybe hearing great promises that they know that someone will pay if we go to socialized meds and it will be all of us that need understanding a good bedside manor and a friend in the docs we have.

I am also adding this. Each year now my huby and I pay out 6,000.00 for our meds with what they call the donut hole. Those of us that are disabled do to things we had no control over, will be paying more and more for our health care and we will be getting less and less back We will be paying for many that are not even part of our Country. I donot mind helping others but there are many that have someone in their family that can work and they should be an not just getting benefits from the government for not wanting to work and they are not ill


Thank you so much

Jean, thanks for sharing your concern. I am not a fan of Barack’s—but I think it’s important we know what they are at least talking about now and then and how it could impact us. I didn’t mean to make it sound like any form of endorsement. My point was rather about it being “a good thing” that chronic illness was being recognized as a place that does need assistance. If you re-read the post I think you will see that only the first couple of sentences had anything to do with this candidate. Most of the post is about chronic illness and the need for chronic disease management (regardless of who are leader will be.)

I am sorry if I’ve offended you in any way. We occasionally mention things that are “political” in nature, such as when laws change that impact those with illnesses, and I’ve had a few people in the past get angry when I shared something that Bush had done that was a step forward for the faith or disability community in legislation.

I don’t like to stir up trouble, but I also believe that we need to be aware of the good, the bad, and the ugly, when it comes to politics rather than ignorant. If you aren’t aware of it, I highly recommend the web site, The Presidential Prayer Team at www.presidentialprayerteam.org/ Whoever our leader is there is no doubt they all need prayer!

I just recomended this site to someone else who suffers chronic illness.

However, I feel particularly unhappy to see Barack mentioned here as he supports the killing of unborn from conception to nine months age unborn or partially born.

Weather we are unborn, ill, disabled or elderly, we have the right to life.
