Gordon Klingenschmitt is no stranger to bizarre claims and conspiracy theories.
Past recognitions by the National Political Rebuttal Examiner include blaming demonic possession for racing officials penalizing a runner, declaring that the purpose of Employment Non-Discrimination Act was to destroy Christian businesses, and insisting that gay marriage had, among other things, caused inflation and hurt the nation's national security.
Following an appearance on MSNBC's The Ed Show, Klingenschmitt said on his Pray In Jesus Name show that he had received an email from someone defending the health care reform legislation by telling the story of a friend who was unable to receive treatment for her cancer because she could not get insurance.
In response, Klingenschmitt insisted that Obamacare was not the answer but was, in fact, the cause of her death, saying "Obamacare is the one that killed this poor lady with cancer."
According to Klingenschmitt, the Affordable Care Act is actually causing people to lose their health insurance. Or, as he put it: "Obamacare causes cancer."
This is the kind of fantastic ignorance that only a religious authoritarian could ever will himself to believe. The Affordable Care Act was designed to allow people to acquire health insurance, not deprive them of it.
And even if it did, Obamacare would be as responsible for cancer as the Bible is for Klingenschmitt's psychosis.
