Or at least I think that’s what they’re doing here. Or maybe they’re just lecturing us about mandatory healthcare insurance, which clearly seems to have some religious significance in Germany.
I mean, we all know how Germans are famous for being so religious and all, but I had no idea that they had begun spreading their evangelical zeal to Obamacare, of all things. But spread they have and we should take their prosthelising in earnest (they certainly do).
Why just take a look at some of the deeper observations to be found within this religious tract, I mean Spiegel article:
In Germany, people are baffled by how hostile a country as religious as the United States can be to the principle of mandatory healthcare insurance.
The US comes across to not only Germans, but to many Europeans, as a religious country. Don’t religious Americans love their neighbors?
“For me the US is a very religious country. It doesn’t matter which religion I look at — love thy neighbor is a very, very important point in religion.”
For her, the apparent deep religiousness of many Americans doesn’t jibe with their unwillingness to be part of a healthcare community.
Well there we have it. Sin and transgression everywhere you look. The devil has entered our US-Amerikan house and will divide and fall it. All because, well, I’m not really sure why. But I think it might be because we as Americans don’t worship mandatory healthcare insurance like other folks do. Amen.
Thanks, Germany. We’ll come to see the light yet. You just wait and see.
