Wayne Shepherd

Wayne Shepherd:  What's unique about The Public Square®? I'm Wayne Shepherd here with Dave Zanotti of the American Policy Roundtable. One thing that makes us unique, Dave, is we have a book we turn to, and that book is the Bible that guides our thinking.

Dave Zanotti:  Wayne, the whole concept here is what's a biblical worldview mean and how does it apply to the issues of the day. And there is no issue bigger or more important or more life changing than healthcare. So in the longer format conversation we had with our whole team we brought in, which we've put online, we brought several pastors in the room to talk about what a pastor is supposed to about this. Here's healthcare that's going to apply to every member of my congregation, very serious serious subject. Should pastor just duck this one or should they get involved?

WS:  A lot of pastors, a lot of churches are reticent about getting involved in issues like this, but we need everyone don't we.

DZ:  One of the fears involved is that we just don't know enough so maybe you'll say something and then be embarrassed because you don't have the facts.  And the truth of the matter is, this issue, while the bill is massively complicated, that in and of itself is the first point of defense. Do we really need one more, extremely complicated federal program? Another thing that comes up is people say what about the uninsured, what about the places where there are holes? We talk about all of that stuff and better alternatives than a federal takeover. So I think anyone can listen to these programs and have a pretty solid defense as to why they don't want this idea to go forward.

WS:  The long weekly edition of  The Public Square®, if it's not heard in your area, as Dave said, you can always go online, it's archived right here, along with past programs as well. We'll continue talking about this proposed nationalized healthcare this week on  The Public Square®. For Dave Zanotti, I'm Wayne Shepherd see you next time on  The Public Square®.
