This article (by Ron Meyer) linked to on this NewsBlog, represents one viewpoint, and as one can see we are happy to share differing viewpoints and opinions. I have received comments from Christian Scientists on both sides of this issue, and it appears Christian Scientists feel differently on how this law will impact them and how they feel about it. We feel it is educational and beneficial to our audience, to share a full breadth of viewpoints through blog posts and responses. This NewsBlog’s mission is to alert our audience of issues that may be of interest, and quite often, issues that need our prayer. We post links to articles without (our own) comment.  Agree or disagree… it is tolerance of each others viewpoints — and praying about these issues and overcoming disappointments —  without things like boycotts and other reactionary acts we read about in the news that makes the world a better place.    — Mark Mohlenbrock, Publisher, PrayerfulLiving.com

    Given the amount of people that Universal Healthcare aka ObamaCare helps, I’m sure it’s a right idea.

Fear not.
