***excerpts***

The secular left claims we are evolutionary accidents who managed to crawl out of the slime and by "natural selection" stand erect and over millions of years outsmart our ancestors, the apes. If that is your belief, then you probably think health care should be rationed.

The unnatural progression for many on the secular left is to see such a person as a "burden." In an age when we think we should be free of burdens – a notion that contributes to our superficiality and makes us morally obtuse – getting rid of granny might seem perfectly rational, even defensible. But by doing so, we assume an even greater burden: the role of God in deciding who gets to live and who must die. Anyone who has seen the film "Bruce Almighty" senses how difficult it is to play God.
