The Feckless Profundity of a Faustian Utopia

Just channeling my inner George Will in trying to describe the debacle that occurred in the U.S. House of Representatives last night. We've now gone from "Kill the Bill" to "Repeal the Deal", in this case, the deal with the devil. After all, isn't that the biggest temptation the devil provides by telling us we can be God-like?

The Democrats have once again succumbed to their yearning for being God-like by telling us what we must and must not do with our healthcare. Come to think of it, hasn't the Left always worked in earnest to expunge any mention of God from the public square? Haven't they been committed to a humanistic approach to government for the last several generations?

And to what end? To gain power, prestige and a prominent place in Hell? For that is truly all that awaits them in their lust for governance. The blessings that have been bestowed on our country are being squandered and ignored before our very eyes.

The test is this: Do we have the faith and meddle to reclaim those blessings? Will it be through silent disobedience or overt revolt? Will we once again put God ahead of our obscene lust for Utopia? Isn't Utopia only available in the domain of God and Heaven? That's what I was taught.
