Michael Moore, please call your office ?¢‚Ç¨‚Äú or the church. In a stunning move, the very liberal Episcopal Church unintentionally repudiates Michael Moore?¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢s manipulative movie Sicko.
As is typical for the Episcopal Church, the Church again injected politics into the pulpit, at least this time, it was something that people could -and should- do to help.
The statement begins: ?¢‚Ç¨?ìImagine waking in the middle of the night with a raging fever and sore throat. Or even worse, your child wakes up feverish and covered in chicken pox. Now, imagine there is no aspirin, Tylenol, or Benadryl in your home because these products are simply not available for purchase in your country. For our brothers and sisters in Cuba, this is everyday life.?¢‚Ç¨¬ù It goes on to request prescription drugs ?¢‚Ç¨‚Äú antibiotics and antiparasitics. Imagine a country where you can?¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢t go to the store and get them with a prescription when needed. Imagine a filmmaker stating that should be the goal of the United States. Moore is right, it does take a Sicko to advocate that.
A big thank you to the Episcopal Church for stating the truth about Cuba and Cuba?¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢s Michael Moore touted health care system. Let?¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢s be clear: Cuba is a totalitarian dictatorship without freedom. The health care system in Cuba is horrendous unless you are in the top 1000 government officials ?¢‚Ç¨‚Äú or are Michael Moore, ready and willing to manipulate the American people into ceding their freedom for a socialized, extremely expensive (in both dollars and lives lost) health care system. Everyone else is out of luck.
Before you buy into the socialized health care system that sicko Michael Moore advocates, look at the facts of Cuba, Britain and Canada. Do you really want a country where even multivitamins are unavailable? Where toothpaste, soap, and shampoo are too? That is the goal of Michael Moore and his ilk ?¢‚Ç¨‚Äú centralized control of your life by power-hungry people and politicians like him.
