Healthcare and Religion

Amy Sullivan, Time MagazineHere is an interesting interview I found on the Washington Post’s On Faith website.  Amy Sullivan, an editor at Time Magazine has some good insights into the healthcare debate when it comes to religion.

Sullivan’s analysis almost makes the religious right sound like cattle being herded around by republican leaders.  I don’t think she is that far off.  She says a few times that the main arguments republicans are using are not coming from religious voices.  They just have the weight of the religious right behind them, because the church is seen as a wing of the republican party.  What a shame.

Good interview.  Sullivan does a really good job of pointing out hypocracy more as inquiry than accusation.
