These are crazy days. It’s like someone can make up the most outrageous stuff and people actually believe it. First the Obama health care plan sanctioned euthanasia for grandma (not true). Then the health care plan was supposed to cover those who are in the US illegally (of which, I think a good idea, but not true). Then Obama was going to indoctrinate kids to stay in school (horrors!).

Now the Obama Healthcare Plan is sending overweight kids to a fat camp to lower costs? Sigh.

One cannot help but wonder if there is a connection between whatever it takes to have faith in an invisible god and whatever it takes to have faith in these untrue, unverified and inflammatory statements. In both cases, the results are the same – emotionally charged over-reactions to absolutely nothing.
