How To Escape Obama's Health Care Plan: Join The Amish Or Convert To Islam

In light of media coverage proclaiming that President Obama's new Health Care Plan is to cover 94-95% of Americans, I have been wondering who the other 5-6% might be. I thought about the Amish. They don't believe in health insurance, but prefer to take care of each other when in need or ill, which is a Christian concept, and part of their strict Christian faith.

I respect the Amish, although I don't agree with some of their tenets. At least they are a peacable people, and generally don't go around physically harming others. On my Townhall.com weblog I previously wrote and published a post about the Amish being exempt from the Military. *See Link To This Post Below.

I have also been wondering about Christian Scientists who, based on their religious beliefs, generally don't believe in going to doctors at all, but rely on their own internal Christian Scientist practitioners. Will they be exempt also?

I have now been alerted to a post published today on American Thinker about the Amish being exempt, due to their religious beliefs, from the new Obama Administration Health Care Plan. Christian Scientists are not mentioned in this particular article, but Orthodox Muslims are! And this has to be the epitomy of nonsensical political correctness within the logic of those who invented this extremely controversial Health Care Plan.

Anyone who lives in the vicinity of Los Angeles, California, which includes myslef, is quite aware of the fact that there are a large number of Muslim doctors in this area who definitely accept medical insurance. My guess is they're not Orthodox Muslims. In fact, the American Thinker post states: "Whether it's all right to serve as a doctor, nurse, or orderly caring for patients whose medical services are being paid for by insurance is not covered in the present response ... " 

To quote the American Thinker article:

It says in Fataawa al-Lajnah al-Daa'imah (15/251):



"In Fataawa al-Lajnah al-Daa'imah (15/277) there is a quotation of a statement of the Council of Senior Scholars concerning the prohibition on insurance and why it is haraam:



Firstly: Commercial insurance of all types is haraam because it involves ambiguity, riba, uncertainty, gambling and consuming people's wealth unlawfully, and other shar'i


Secondly: It is not permissible for the Muslim to get involved with insurance companies by working in administration or otherwise, because working in them comes under the heading of cooperating in sin and transgression, and Allaah forbids that as He says: "but do not help one another in sin and transgression. And fear Allaah. Verily, Allaah is Severe in punishment"
[al-Maa'idah 5:2]. End quote. 1

The health insurance industry will not fight this bill, either. That's because they see 32 million people (estimates doubtful) that do not pay premiums, which will start buying insurance. And many of these people will have a DC public to pay their premiums for them by the "low income" subsidies. In addition, health insurers already have staff trained to help deploy this DC law health care and bureaucrats to administer the DC. More money for insurers.
