Steve King and Glenn Back are outraged: Voting for health reform on Sunday is ‘an affront to God.'

KING: They intend to vote on the Sabbath, during Lent, to take away the liberty that we have right from God. […]

BECK: You couldn't have said it better. Here is a group of people that have so perverted our faith and our hope and our charity, that is a – this is an affront to God. And I honestly, I don't think anybody is like, "yes, and now what we'll do is we'll vote on the Sabbath." But I think it's absolutely appropriate that these people are trying to put the nail in the coffin on our country on a Sunday – something our founders would have never, ever, ever done. Out of respect for God.

Right.  Because we all know Jesus hated sick people.

P.S.  Remember a few years back when the Republican-controlled Congress voted to prevent the plug from being pulled on brain-dead Terry Schiavo?  On a Sunday.
