Religion at the service of government propaganda:
Robert Pear reports in yesterday’s New York Times on the Obama administration’s planned public relations offensive on behalf of Obamacare:
On Wednesday, White House officials summoned dozens of leaders of nonprofit organizations that strongly back the health law to help them coordinate plans for a prayer vigil, press conferences and other events outside the court when justices hear arguments for three days beginning March 26.
Hmmm. A prayer vigil for Obamacare. This seems to me something of a category error with seeds of comedy buried in it. Something tells me these folks lack a finely honed sense of irony, or maybe even a deft political touch.
This is the same administration who has the President call an activist set on overturning a religious institution’s policy.
George Orwell lacked imagination.
